Healthy & Hearty Pizza

I love me some good pizza, that’s just all there is to it.  However, if I eat crap, I gain weight…and lets face it folks…pizza is full of crap.  So… I decided to come up with my own recipe where my family and I could still enjoy the popular entree.

4- Whole Wheat Pitas or 2- whole wheat pre-made pizza crusts (sometimes Walmart has the pre-made)
1- Jar pizza sauce (I get Walmart Great Value brand, less sugar then most of the others)
1- Pd Lean Ground Beef
8-White mushrooms, sliced
1-Can of Artichoke hearts, the hearts pulled into smaller chunks
4- Roma Tomatos or a few cherry tomatoes, sliced
1-small onion, diced
1/2-Cups of Cheddar Cheese
1/2-Cup Mozzarella Cheese
(any other veggies your family may enjoy, go ahead and substitute.  I wouldn’t suggest not using the tomatoes though, they are amazing baked on this pizza)

Preheat oven to 375, and brown the ground beef.  If your family doesn’t like onions unless they are cooked, go ahead and throw them in with the beef.  I like them a bit crisp tender, so I add them later.  Smother the pittas or pizza crust with the pizza sauce, then add the ground beef, to cover.  Add all the vegetables, spread out.  Then, slather with the cheese….and bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese and veggies are cooked, and the crust is cooked to your liking.

My entire family LOVES this dish.  Because I just started really serving it with the artichoke hearts, Callie still picks them off…but I still cook it with them, hoping eventually she’ll just eat it 🙂
Happy Eating Friends!!  ~ Trina

    I’ve never thought of using pita for pizza. I’ll have to try that! That’s a good idea for giving everyone in the family the kind of pizza they prefer.
