Spinach & Feta Pitzas

Okay, so the second installment (and the last until I find another recipe that I can't flop!) in my Recommended Recipe series is for a yummy lunch, Spinach & Feta Pitzas (there's method in the spelling madness, as you will see shortly).

Ingredients (to make 1 Pitza):

  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat feta cheese
  • ½ cup blended low-fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup skim milk mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup tomato puree (I just use All Gold's convenient Tomato Paste sachets)
  • ½ cup spinach (fresh or frozen, thawed) chopped
  • Pizza seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 whole-wheat pita (now see why it's a pitza?)
Note: I pretty much ignore the quantities (aside from the 1 whole-wheat pita) and just ensure it's suitably covered in goodness :)

First carefully slice the pita into 2 round crusts, place inside part up and set aside. (we don't bother with this but rather use the pita as a whole) Combine puree, garlic and seasoning in a small bowl and spread on top of both crusts. (another waste of time) Spread tomato puree / paste onto pita bread. Add garlic & seasoning as desired. Follow then with the cottage cheese. Using the tines of a fork (whatever) Crumble the feta cheese and sprinkle on top. Follow with spinach and then lightly sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Bake in a 200°C oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is slightly toasted.

This is yummy but I definitely recommend eating it while it's still piping hot straight outta the oven! Again, I'll post some delish pics next time I make them - if I remember before scoffing it down ;)
