Pita Pizza with Cheese, Avocado and Mango

pita pizza with cheddar, avocado, and mango

Every Saturday, my brother has a tradition of ordering pizza from Domino’s. I’m not much of a pizza person, and it’s not very healthy, so I never snag a slice. But I am interested in experimenting with different kinds of foods, and trying to make healthy versions of things like pizza. So for lunch today, I decided to make my own personal-sized “pizza.” Instead of going through the trouble of making a crust, I used a whole wheat pita round. Call me a health nut, but I actually thought it tasted better than the puffy pizza crust usually found on take-out pizza like Domino’s.

I’ve heard of people topping pizza with pineapple before, so I thought I’d do that. But there was no pineapple at my grocery store today, so I settled for mango. It tasted good, not in a usual way, but kind of in a weird way. Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t taste weird, just good in a weird way. The crunchy mango contrasted with soft avocado and melted cheese in an interesting blend of flavors.

Pita Pizza with Cheese, Avocado, and Mango

Makes one serving

pita pizza with avocado and mango and 4-state cheddar cheese

Ingredients:

  • one whole wheat pita round
  • 1/4 cup Sargento brand 4-state cheddar shredded cheese
  • 1/4 of an avocado, cut into slices or chunks or whatever – I cut mine free-form style!
  • 4 small slices mango, chopped into smaller chunks

Directions:

Spread cheese over pita as evenly as possible. Microwave pita with cheese on until cheese is melted. (This took 33 seconds in my microwave – just keep checking until it is done.)

Distribute avocado pieces and mango on top of the cheese and microwave for another ten seconds or so.

Now your pizza is ready to devour – enjoy!
