Veggie Pita Pizza

Ok, I really LOVED this dinner. It was quick, simple, easy...and tasted yummy!!! It is a Veggie Pita Pizza and I got it off of a website a VERY LONG time ago and have never tried it. We made this for dinner last night and Nathan and I are definite fans now!!! The kids did not eat the veggie one...I made them pepperoni and cheese, they weren't down with the pizza/veggie idea. ha! oh well, I try anyway!!!! This recipe is for only 2 servings, so double accordingly!!

1 Pita Bread
2 to 4 tbsp pizza sauce
1 small zuchini, chopped (1 cup)
2 tbsp chopped onion
2 roma tomatoes, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 tbsp sliced ripe olives
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp dried basil leaves
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Split pita bread around edge with knife to make 2 rounds. spread pizza sauce on bread halves, place on small microwavable plates. Put zuchini and onion in bowl and microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in tomatoes, olives, salt and basil. Spoon veggies over bread halves, top with cheese. Microwave uncovered on high 45 to 60 seconds or until hot. Enjoy!

Next time I want to cook them in the oven and see if the bread gets crispy instead of kind of soggy like the microwave does. This would be a good easy thing for lunch too!! :)

I have been exercising, almost every day. My limit is about 3 miles. I usually will run 1/2 mile, then walk 1/2 mile and just alternate every 1/2 mile or so. I go to the midwife tomorrow, so we'll see what i've gained in the "weight area"!!!
