With New Years quickly approaching, many of us are looking to shape up our diets by incorporating healthier alternatives to the foods we crave most. I’m helping you get started with a 15 minute healthy meal.

Pizza is one of my favorite childhood memories. I remember getting so excited for “pizza night” aka any night with a babysitter as a kid. I still love pizza (who doesn’t?) but while searching for a healthier alternative to on of my favorite foods, I discovered pita crusts! And so, 15 Minute Healthy Pita Pizzas were born!

Most of us love a thin, crispy crust…unless you’re a deep dish Chicago native. I really don’t get those people. If you love a thin crust pizza as much as I do, you’ll love these healthy pita pizzas. Using pita bread sliced in half and toasted creates the PERFECT thin crust.

Lately I’ve been so busy between work, the holidays, and my social life that I am all about 15 minute dinners like these Healthy Pita Pizzas and these 15 Minute Pork Chops. Being able to throw a fabulous dinner together in under 30 minutes is a lifesaver!

These pita pizzas are the perfect alternative to everyone’s favorite go-to. A lemon herb hummus serves as the “sauce”, which brings a tangy yet savory flavor to each bite. Hummus is high in fiber and filling, so you will most definitely be satisfied.

Of course I placed the hummus on my custom board from Words With Boards! You can get one with your name, too. They make the best gifts!
