Toaster Oven Pita Pizza

Waiting for a recipe from a pictureless cookbook, you say? Well, here's the very first one!

Tonight was one of those nights when I just wanted something simple for dinner. I didn't want to buy anything from a fast food restaurant, but my refrigerator and pantry were not stocked very well either. I also didn't want to make something very time consuming because I wanted to catch Lie To Me. What is a girl to do under such strenuous conditions? Use it for inspiration for pictureperfectpassionphood, of course! I slowly turned the pages of The Healthy College Cookbook , hoping to find a non-time-consuming recipe whose ingredients were already in my destitute kitchen.

To my delight, I came across dinner! I had pita bread stashed away in my freezer, frozen broccoli florets, canned tomato sauce, some pepperoni slices, and plenty of cheese. I ended up making two pizzas - one for me, and one for my vegetarian sister. The meal was delicious, simple, quick, and best of all, you can pretty much throw anything on top of it.

Toaster Oven Pita Pizza submitted by Patricia Hancock from Hawthorne, New Jersey to The Healthy College Cookbook:

1 whole-wheat pita (or more, depending on how many pizzas you're making)
1/4 cup tomato sauce (per pizza)
Handful of shredded mozzarella (or any type cheese you like)
Toppings of your choice (vegetables, pepperoni slices, and so on)

1. Preheat the broiler of your toaster oven.

2. Place the pita on a toaster broiler pan. Spread the sauce on top of the pita. Sprinkle with cheese and add the toppings. Place in the toaster and broil until the cheese is melted. Eat hot.
