I recently chatted with my cousin about my food choices. He commented that it seemed like eating vegetarian was a lot of work and that there wasn't really any quick and easy meals. To a certain extent that is true if you are trying to eat nutritiously. It definitely takes a little more planning and preparation. BUT....as I made this for dinner tonight I could help but think of him....it was such a quick and easy meal after a long and busy day. This one's for you Cuz!
This is another one of those recipes that is more of an ingredient list than anything else. So here's what I used.
Whole wheat pita
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Spread a little pesto on the pita bread. Then arrange a handful of spinach to cover the pita. Top the spinach with a little pizza sauce, sliced tomatoes, cheese and basil. It's as easy as that. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
* In the picture above I used a bottled jar of Fire-Roasted Soup since I didn't have any sauce. It was delicious!
This also happens to be a great lunch for the kids. I will either use leftovers or quickly whip up a batch before school! They will never need to miss out on 'pizza day' again.
