We have started doing Meatless Monday a few months ago. I can't lie...it's been a little rough. We are meat eaters in this family but our docs have told us to cut back on our red meat consumption and meat in general to give our bodies a break. I'm thinking, NO PROBLEM, how hard can it be, right? WRONG! If you're not used to a vegetarian diet, it's a little scary and frustrating coming up with main meals that make you feel full and satisfied. Well this pita pizza hit the spot. Not only was it delicious but it was probably the fastest meal I have ever made for dinner, no joke! I was in such a hurry to get my daughter to dance I bought the ingredients, ran in the door and had this on the table in 10 minutes. It was tasty, filling and easy...best COMBO ever when cooking dinner.
Whole Wheat Pita Bread
Can of artichokes hearts, roughly chopped
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Parmesan Cheese, shredded
Freshly ground black pepper
I didn't include measurements because it's really all up to how much you like and how many family members you have to feed.
Spread pesto over the pita bread
Add the spinach, artichokes, and mozzarella and Parmesan.
Season with black pepper.
Place pitas on a baking sheet and stick under a preheated broiler for about 5 minutes or until your cheese is melted and the top starts to brown.
Your body and your heart will thank you for this meatless dish :)
