Happy first day of March! Yesterday I got my first Nature Box with 6 different snacks. Cherry Berry Bonanza, Granny Smith Apples, Dried Peaches, Cheddar Sour Dough Pretzels , Cocoa Almonds, and Cocoa Berry Granola. I can’t stop eating them! Especially the dried berries. I love the dried peaches and apples because the only list of ingredients on the back is peaches and apples. That’s right, no sweeteners of any kind. I will definitely be ordering some again and I want to try everything on their site.
I have been craving pizza lately, and not the cauliflower pizza that everyone has been raving about lately. Ew… I’d rather have a real pizza crust and I thought pitas would be a healthier way to lighten up pizza. When I worked at the dining center, I’d be one making pita pizzas in the back of the kitchen. They would have greek, pepperoni, meat, etc…. All were very good. The pita I found was a low carb, higher fiber pita with only 60 calorie and 2 grams of fat. I used store bought alfredo sauce from Trader Joe’s and shredded rotisserie chicken to make these pizzas super fast and easy to make. All they take is 8 minutes in the oven. If you want a really crispy crust, bake the pitas in a 400 degree for about 7 minutes. You can top pitas with pretty much whatever ingredient you want.
1 Pita (I used Joseph’s Low Carb Pita bread 60 calories per pita)
2 tablespoons of Alfredo Sauce
1/8 cup of low fat Monterey Jack Cheese
1/8 cup of Shredded Rotisserie Chicken
Salt and Pepper
Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of Alfredo Sauce on top of pita, two tablespoons of shredded chicken and the same with cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the pita is crispy.
