Sneak in some greens and whole grains with this irresistible dish you wont be able to stop eating! Think cheesy bread meets spinach dip and you have this Spinach and Garlic Pita. Its a whole meal on it’s own or make it as an appetizer! Just a few simple ingredients.
Honestly, I prefer the method of using pita bread for pizza rather than purchasing frozen ones. This way I have more control over the ingredients. Whole wheat pitas are generally easy to find on island. Compared to tortillas, I prefer to thickness of a pita as a pizza base. Adding spinach and fresh tomatoes with some low fat cheese, makes this taste like it came straight from Italy (not your freezer!).
- 1 pita, whole-wheat

- 1 tsp Minced Garlic In Olive Oil
