Hallee’s Healthy Pleasurable Pita Pizzas: Fiesta Pita PizzasHealthy Pleasurable Fiesta Pita Pizzas

A wonderful recipe especially if you use my Whole Wheat Perfect Pocket Pita Bread recipe. This recipe makes 8 small slices of pita pizza, with each slice containing only 111 calories, 10 whole grams of good protein, 12 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fat (with only 1.5 grams of saturated fat), 2.5 grams of fiber, plus good iron and zinc.

Pinto beans are rich in folate, a B vitamin that’s necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in your body.

But best of all, they are fun to eat and they taste like a party.

INGREDIENTS:

6 oz. extra-lean ground beef
1 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp hot sauce
⅔ cup hot (or medium) salsa
2 Perfect Pocket Pita Bread, about 6″ round

DIRECTIONS:

Cut each pita into quarters and serve.

Garnish with sour cream and sliced green onions, if you like.
