I love simple recipes that make me wonder "why didn't I think of this before?" Browsing through the spring issue of Z-Life Magazine, which has been showcasing some inspiring food articles, I found a quick and easy recipe for a fruit tortilla pizza. I used a whole wheat pita instead of a tortilla because it provided a sturdier base. With this version, you not only get antioxidant-rich fruits but equally potent cinnamon, nuts and peanut butter for extra nutrients and lasting satisfaction. The base is Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese, so again more protein and nutrients. It's perfect for breakfast or as a late night guiltless calorie-controlled snack. Try a little Nutella or drizzle of melted dark chocolate chips instead of the peanut butter if you need a chocolate fix.
Best Fruit Pizza
1 Thomas' Sahara Whole Wheat Pita (or other small pita)
2-3 T vanilla Greek yogurt

1 T peanut butter, melted
- Spread Greek yogurt evenly over the whole pita. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Sprinkle with chopped fruit and nuts.
- Using a teaspoon, drizzle peanut butter over fruit.
- Enjoy immediately!
