Pita pizza

Every college student's favorite meal is pizza, but it's incredibly unhealthy. Here's a cheap, healthier pizza that's made with cheese, sauce and pita bread.

These are the ingredients you need to make pita pizzas.

  1. Turn the toaster oven to the 'bake' setting and set it to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. While the oven heats up, begin assembling the pizza.
  3. Spread two tablespoons of pizza sauce on the pita bread.
  4. Add mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle on top minced onions, oregano leaves and garlic powder, or any seasonings that you choose.

Cost: $1.12 per pita pizza

At Publix, the pita bread is sold in a pack of six and costs $1.29. The cheese I used is from Trader Joe's and cost $3.99 for a 16 oz bag. The pizza sauce was $1.29 from Trader Joe's, too. I've had the seasonings, but they range from $1 to $1.50 at Target. The total cost of the ingredients is $9.58 if you didn't have any of the seasonings or pita bread on hand from other recipes. For this serving, the pita bread costs $.22, cheese cost $0.75, and the sauce cost $.15. That's a total cost of $1.12 per pita pizza, and the ingredients can be used for other meals.
