Double Cheese Pita Pizzas

Double Cheese Pita Pizzas created by Food.com

Recipe courtesy of Melissa Gaman and Cooking Channel. We swapped out ricotta cheese with low-fat cottage cheese for these quick weeknight white pizzas. It tastes cheesy and has just a fraction of the fat and calories. Original recipe: http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/double-cheese-pita-pizzas.html

ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces Italian turkey sausage, removed from the casings
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen leaf spinach, thawed, squeezed dry and roughly chopped
  • 1 14 cups 2% percent cottage cheese
  • 4 whole wheat pita bread, preferably pocketless
  • 14 cup thinly sliced red onion (about 1/2 small onion)
  • 4 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)
  • 12 cup fresh basil leaf, torn

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and spinach and continue to cook until well mixed and the spinach is heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Put the cottage cheese in the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth. Lay the pita breads on 2 baking sheets and evenly brush with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Evenly spread with the pureed cottage cheese to the edge of each pita and then top with the sausage mixture, red onions and shredded cheese.
  • Bake until the pita is crisp around the edges and the cheese is melted, 12 to 15 minutes. Scatter with the basil.
