Low Fat Pita Pizzas Recipe
•8 regular pita bread rounds(not pocket type)
•2c tomato sauce(1 15oz.can) mixed with
•1-2tsp pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning
•8-16oz. ground turkey meat mixed with
•2-3tsp pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning
•1/2 small onion,minced(optional
•8 good sized mushrooms,thin sliced (optional
•8-16oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
•1c sliced black olives(optional)
•veg. oil spray
1.Preheat oven to 425 . Lay pitas on a cookie sheet big enough to hold them in a single layer(use 2 if needed). Mix tomato sauce wit pizza seasoning,set aside. Spray a non-stick fry pan with veg oil spray,add ground turkey,breaking it up as you add to pan. Cook over med-high heat until all the pinkness is gone and it is getting a bit brown(ground turkey never gets really brown and crispy). Sprinkle with pizza seasoning,mix well,add water,mix again and let simmer-the turkey meat will absorb the water during about 5 mins of cooking time over med-high heat.
2.Spread each pita with about 1/4c of sauce. Sprinkle with diced raw onion,sliced mushrooms,or black olives as desired. Sprinkle with cooked turkey,top with an even layer of mozzarella cheese.
3.Cook in preheated oven for 20-25 mins until cheese is bubbly and brown. Check after 15 mins as ovens do vary.

In my recipe I use lean ground beef and instead of tomato sauce I use a jar of spaghetti sauce. Very taste and easy to put together on a lazy night.
