Pita Pizzas

Serves: 4 (1 per serving)

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 - 6 minutes

1/2 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce or pizza sauce
1/8 tsp. sugar (if using tomato sauce)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crumbled (if using tomato sauce)
2 (6 inch) whole-wheat or plain pita pockets, split into open into rounds
1 cup grated fat-free mozzarella-style soy cheese or part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green bell peppers
5 ounces can sliced mushrooms, rinsed and drained
1 tsp. dried oregano, crumbled

Preheat broiler. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, sugar, and 1.2 tsp. oregano. To assemble, place 2 pita halves in the center of a large baking sheet. Place remaining pita halves on another baking sheet. Spread 2 Tbsp sauce on each pita, sprinkle with cheese, top with peppers and mushrooms, and sprinke with 1 tsp. oregano. Place oven rack 3-4 inches from heat. Put one baking sheet in oven so pizzas are under flame. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and edges begin to brown. Remove and cook remaining pizzas.
