Monday's Meals in Minutes

Happy Monday everyone!  Trina here with your Monday's Meals in Minutes idea.  Our household has to accomodate a few things - mommy's busy schedule, a 2 year old's picky appetite, and daddy's diabetes.  A lot of my hubby's diabetes management is controlled by carb counting, so we're always looking for ways to cut out a few carbs.  I saw this idea somewhere and it is so quick and easy, the toddler loves it and it's carb friendly (versus the full-blown fast food version!).  The idea?  Pita Pizzas.  The pita bread generally has less carbs than regular pizza dough, not to mention less fat as well!

Pita Pizzas
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10-15 min.

Ingredients:
Pitas (I used Olfason's Whole Wheat Pita Pockets)
Pizza Sauce
Cheese (I used skim mozza cheese)
Your favorite pizza toppings.

Start by putting your pitas on a cooking tray.  Now, my hubby figured that one wouldn't be nearly enough so he asked me to cook 2 for him.  The extra one was used as lunch the next day because he was stuffed on the first one!



Add some pizza sauce


And your favorite toppings, and don't forget the cheese!  We're not big on veggies on our pizza, so we went with all-meat.


Throw them in a 350' oven for about 10 minutes, the cheese will be all melted.  Then turn the oven to broil for a minute or two (watch closely!) to brown up the cheese a bit.

Cut into pieces using a pizza cutter or knife



And serve with a side salad.  Supper is served in about 20 minutes flat!
