Pepperoni Pita Pizza

Pita used to be my diet ingredient to have less intake of carbs. Pita is also a great alternative for a pizza crusts just like Pizza Oven's recipe of a pepperoni pita pizza.

Ingredients:
2 whole-wheat pitas (6" diameter) 
1 cup pizza sauce 
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 
2 oz. sliced turkey pepperoni (about 32 rounds) 
¼ cup chopped roasted red peppers 
4 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese 
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Split the pitas in half to form circles.
  2. Place the pita halves on two baking sheets. Spread ¼ cup pizza sauce on each pita half to within a half inch of the edge. Sprinkle each half with ¼ cup mozzarella. Arrange pepperoni slices on top of the cheese. Sprinkle each pizza with 1 tablespoon peppers and top with 1 teaspoon Parmesan. Drizzle the oil over the pizzas.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove to serving plates and cut into quarters.
