.:Greek Pita Pizza's:.
...Start to Finish: 35 minutes...
You Will Need:
*8 ounces lean ground beef OR ground turkey
*1/4 cup finely chopped onion
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
*1 teaspoon fresh rosemary OR 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed-I use this route
*2 6-inch whole wheat or white pita bread rounds
*1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
* 1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach
*1 medium tomato, chopped.
*1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (1 ounce)
Preheat Oven to 400 degree's
In a medium skillet, cook meat, onion and garlic until meat is browned. Drain fat. Stir in tomato sauce and rosemary. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 2 minutes.
Split Pita bread rounds in half horizontally. (This can be sorta tricky and frustrating-or at least it was for me-so I like to do this before I cook the meat) Place Pita halves-rough sides up-on a large baking sheet. Bake 3-4 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Top toasted Pita's with meat mixture, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake for 2-3 minutes more. (Or until cheese is melted) Remove from oven, top with Spinach, Tomato and Feta Cheese. Serve Immediately.

This is a very delicious meal and so easy to make! We had Hummus and Cucumbers for the side. Levi had been craving pizza, and this is the closest he's had to that in 6 weeks! Feel free to top your Greek Pizza with any other toppings such as Olives! Or if you want to go without the Cheese to make it a healthier meal, try Avocado, ya know, the good fat:} MmmMmm....
Levi started the "Biggest Loser" at work on October 1st and it goes until December 1st. Talk about 2 major Holiday's with all that yummy candy and delectable food he's missing out on!! (Sorry hun...) I couldn't be more proud of him tho! He really has dedicated himself 100% to this challenge and he is doing AMAZING!!! In 6 weeks he has lost 29 pounds! Talk about dedication. He still has 9 more pounds that he would like to loose in the next 2 weeks. YOU CANT DO IT BABE!!! He has found a new love for the gym and eating healthy. And, might I add, he looks SOOOO incredible!!! He has helped and encourage me with getting into shape and loosing some weight as well...I have lost 8 pounds! Whooo! And that's with having the "Swine Flu" for a month! Watching what you eat and your portion intake really has made the biggest difference. We also get our sugar fixes from the lovely Golden Spoon or Mesa Fro Yo! It's da best...
Update on our recent fun times and where we are currently residing coming soon...and yes, majority of the pictures I have are from my phone...I need to get a replacement digital camera ASAP (hint hint hun...!!!!)
