  • Makes 2 pizzas (each 1 is 6 pts)

  • ½

    cup natural salt-free tomato sauce

  • ¼ to ½

    tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste

  • 2 or 3

    medium cloves garlic, passed through a garlic press or very finely minced

  • 2

    whole-wheat, sprouted-wheat or gluten-free pitas

  • 1

    cup loosely packed spinach or other winter greens, finely chopped

  • 2

    oz fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced into rounds

  • 2

    tbsp minced fresh basil leaves


Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, red pepper flakes and garlic; stir to mix well. Place both pitas on a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush or spoon, evenly divide sauce mixture between pitas, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edges. Sprinkle with spinach, then arrange mozzarella rounds over top of greens, dividing both evenly. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until greens are wilted and mozzarella is melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with basil, dividing evenly, and serve immediately. If you're enjoying 1 pizza, loosely wrap remaining pizza in aluminum foil or store in a sealable container for up to 2 days in refrigerator. Reheat in a warm oven or serve at room temperature.
