With my new diet and exercise program (Body for LIFE and Eating for LIFE), I have found that the most difficult part is managing some of the cravings when it's not my free day. If the kids have pizza, I want it too! I have substituted a personal pizza made with a pita as the crust, fat free cheese, turkey pepperone, etc, and found it really satisfies some of those cravings.
So based on that success, I came up with this Pizza Pocket as a quick and healthy lunch.
Mix together in a bowl:
2 slices lower fat ham, sliced into 1/2" by 1" pieces
6 slices turkey pepperoni, cut into quarters
1 cup fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
2 T fat free mozzarella cheese
Other "pizza" toppings as desired... chopped red onions, bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, etc
Spread 2 T pizza sauce into one half of a whole grain pita. Warm pita slightly in microwave first if necessary, to soften it for filling. Fill with half of above topping mixture, and microwave for approximately 30 seconds, just until spinach wilts.
Makes 2-3 pizza pockets.
