This recipe is very easy to make and is a healthier alternative to take-out pizza. (A 6″ personal pizza from a chain pizza restaurant contains about 680 calories, 29 g of fat, and 4 g of fibre). Top this pizza with whatever vegetables you like, and for a vegetarian version, simply omit the salami. 


4 whole wheat pitas (6″)

1/3 cup tomato sauce

50 g sliced salami

1/4 diced red onion

1/3 cup sliced bell bepper

1/3 cup sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

1/3 cup chopped zucchini

1/3 cup black pitted olives

1/3 cup crumbled feta

1/2 avocado, sliced

Fresh ground pepper


Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the 4 pitas. Top with salami, vegetables (except avocado) and feta cheese. Bake at 400F (200C) for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Top with sliced avocado and fresh ground pepper. Makes 4 mini pizzas.
