Bake Pumpkin and Prosciutto Pita Pizzas
Nearly everyone loves pizza, right? In fact, roughly three billion pizzas are sold in the United States each year, which comes to a whopping 46 slices per person!
Pizza isn't always the healthiest option out there, but you can up the nutrition factor by making mini whole-wheat pita pizzas at home. Vitamin-rich pumpkin and fresh herbs make this pizza one you can feel good about eating. Keep it simple by using store bought pita bread, and show your kids that healthy, inexpensive meals are a cinch to make. Pumpkin and prosciutto are great toppings for fall, but feel free to vary the toppings to suit whatever is in season now!
What You Need:
- 8 peanut free, tree nut free pita breads
- Homemade or store-bought marinara or pizza sauce
- 12-16 thin slices of prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise (about 3-4 slices per pizza)
- 1 small pumpkin (butternut or banana squash work well too), cut into very thin slices or small cubes
- Fresh sage, thyme, or basil (baby spinach is a fine substitute with milder flavor)
- Crumbled feta (brie, fontina or ricotta are also good)
