Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- 4 small (6-inch) whole grain pitas
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
Place pitas on cookie sheet or pizza stone. Brush each with 1/2 tsp oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Place in oven for about 10 minutes or until golden and starting to crisp. Remove from oven.
BASE PIZZA TOPPING
– 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (reduced sodium)
– 1/2 tsp dried oregano
– 1/2 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
Divide spinach, sauce, and oregano evenly among pitas. Spider Pizza: on 3 pitas sprinkle first with spinach and oregano, then sauce. Frankenstein Pizza: add sauce first then oregano and spinach in a rectangular shape (the green will show through the cheese).
SPIDER TOPPING DECOR
– 1 block Cabot Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese
- Black olives
Lengthwise, cut off a little less than 1/4 the cheese. Slice into long thin strips for the spider web. (Shred the rest in a food processor ).
Slice a black olive in half lengthwise for the spider's body and use small olive slices for legs.
FRANKENSTEIN TOPPING DECOR
- Black olives
- Green olives
- Red bell pepper
- Green bell pepper
- Small fresh mozzarella balls
Add shredded cheese in a rectangular shape for frankenstein's face and outline with green bell pepper. Decorate face as pictured using the "decor " items. Or , create you own version
Jack O'Lantern: Sprinkle cheese evenly over another pita and decorate with black olives for jack o'lantern face. Add red bell pepper outline and green bell
Ghost: Sprinkle cheese in the shape of a ghost over another pita. Add black olive halves for eyes and a large olive half for mouth.
COOKING PIZZAS: Place in the oven about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and pizzas are hot. Serve immediately.
Options: Hand grate the cheese if you don't have a food processor. Use other veggies for toppings such as eggplant for the ghost's mouth, mushrooms for the bolts in Frankenstein's neck, etc… Get creative using uncured turkey pepperoni or sausage for decorating. Let your kids decorate! (Though you'll have to do the chopping unless they cut shapes out using small cookie cutters.) Make all of one kind of of pizza. If you are pressed for time, the ghost and jack o'lantern are easier to make.
