  • 4 6-inch whole wheat pitas
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • ½ bell pepper julienne (long strips)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Optional: ¼ cup mixed herbs basil, parsley, oregano alone or a mix, chopped


  • Preheat the broiler to low. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place the pitas on the baking sheet and brush both sides with the oil. Broil 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  • Spread up to ¼ cup sauce on each pita. Top the pitas with pepper, cheese, and optional red pepper flakes. Broil again until cheese softens and starts to get golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes, being careful not to burn pita.
  • Remove from broiler and top with herbs.



Note: other veggies work well too! Just don’t overload the pita or it will not cook well.
