Greek Pita Pizzas

Makes: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/2pita
Greek Pita Pizzas
Ingredients
  • 6  ounces  lean ground beef or lamb
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped onion
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 8  ounce can  no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1  teaspoon  snipped fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2 6  inches  whole wheat or white pita bread rounds
  • 1/2  cup  shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/2  cup  shredded fresh spinach
  • 1  small tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4  cup  crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (1 ounce)
  • 12  pitted kalamata or ripe olives, halved (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium nonstick skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and garlic until meat is browned; drain off fat. Stir tomato sauce and rosemary into meat mixture in skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes.

2. Carefully split pita bread rounds in half horizontally; place pita halves, rough sides up, in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted.

3. Top toasted pita bread with meat mixture; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven. Top with spinach, tomato, feta cheese, and, if desired, olives; serve immediately.
