Healthy Pizza Recipe | Pita Pocket Pizza

We all love steaming hot, melt in your mouth, cheesy pizza, don’t we?

While it’s definitely okay to indulge in the real deal every once in a while, all that dough and cheese (never mind the toppings) may not be the best idea for a daily meal.

But no one said we have to give up that delicious taste we love. Here is my favorite healthy pizza recipe so I can eat pizza any day I want! This is a healthy alternative to the high calorie, greasy delivery or pizzeria variety. Believe it or not, you may even like this one better!

These are customizable, so feel free to use any of your favorite veggies!
