• 1/2 cup natural salt-free tomato sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 2 or 3 medium cloves garlic, passed through a garlic press or very finely minced
  • 2 whole-wheat, sprouted-wheat or gluten-free pitas
  • 1 cup loosely packed spinach or other winter greens, finely chopped
  • 2 oz fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, red pepper flakes and garlic; stir to mix well.
  3. Place both pitas on a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush or spoon, evenly divide sauce mixture between pitas, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edges. Sprinkle with spinach, then arrange mozzarella rounds over top of greens, dividing both evenly.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until greens are wilted and mozzarella is melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with basil, dividing evenly, and serve immediately.
