BBQ Pita Pizza

9 WWPP Posted by 7 years ago 5 Comments

I LOVE bar style food and these little guys made me feel like I was being “bad” when I was actually being “good”. Loose terms I know but you know that i mean. ;~)

Armed with leftover turkey from Christmas and stale pitas I put these together. YUM! Is all I can say! BBQ Pita Pizza

  • 2 small or 1 large whole wheat pitas
  • 1 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 2 oz leftover turkey (or chicken even short cuts would work)
  • about 1/4 cup diced bell pepper (I used an orange one)
  • 1 oz light (2%) Cheddar cheese shredded

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Use a BBQ brush to spread the BBQ sauce into the nook and crannies of the pita.

Top with the turkey, bell peppers and cheese.

Bake about 10 minutes.

Here’s a little before and after cooking shot. Just be warned the “light” cheddar never really looks like it melts but it’s pretty good!

    What a great idea! I've already been using the Western Bagel Alternative Pita (1 point each) for pizza crust for a while. I never thought of making one with bbq sauce though. This will definitely be going on my To Try list for next week. :) Reply
