, , No Comments
I don't know about all of you guys but the one thing I think of the second I go on a diet is PIZZA!!! There are multiple reasons. Sometimes I just don't feel like cooking and it seems easy to buy a frozen pizza or call for delivery after a long day of work. Welcome to the perfect marry to the best of both worlds. Have your pizza and eat it too! Don't feel guilty for indulging since this filling pizza is only 275 calories! You could almost have 2 entire mini pizzas and not go over on calories!

Grocery List- 

  • 1 full or 2 halves-Pita Bread -I buy Kangaroo Pita Pockets 
  • 1/4 cup or less-Shredded Cheese that you want for your pizza topping (I'd love a vegan cheese recommendation if you have one- leave me name brands in comments and why you like that brand)
  • 2-3 table spoons -Canned Pizza Sauce- (If your lazy) I'll leave my homemade pizza sauce recipe below. It lasts about a week in the fridge. 
  • Olive Oil 
  • Toppings- Obviously you can use anything you want here. I don't buy anything special just use what's in the fridge. Today I had some leftover Red Peppers I had bought to dip in my hummus. I had some onion leftover from making my sauce and I always have a full stock of multiple types of olives. A fried egg is also a great option here with some fresh sliced basil on top. 
To make the homemade Pizza Sauce- If your lazy skip this step :) 
-The idea is to make this on a Sunday (or whatever your downtime day is) so you can easily prepare meals throughout the week. It does take awhile to make but if you have time you might as well try it once!
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic- I normally use less due to my heartburn issues. 
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano and basil or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano and basil  (if using fresh, add at the end of the cooking time same with basil)
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes (undrained) or 2 pounds diced fresh tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar- I like more like 3 teaspoons
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (this makes for a lot of heat, which we love, but I recommend you start out with 1/4 teaspoon or even just a generous pinch if you're unsure)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Splash of red wine (you can use whatever your drinking) This is also a great way to use up the red wine you didn't finish. The red wine loses it's luster after it's been opened over night so I just leave it in my cupboard to cook with. 
Start with olive oil on medium heat. Add garlic and cook until lightly browned. If you burn the garlic you must start over. Then add everything else and simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally. This sauce freezes great but I like to just leave it in the fridge for easy access. If you don't like chunky tomato sauce buy cans of the plain "tomato sauce" in the store. 

Back to the Pita Pizza-
