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.
- One or two pieces of pita bread (depending on how many pizzas you want)
- pizza sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- seasoning: garlic powder, minced onions, oregano leaves
- Turn the toaster oven to the 'bake' setting and set it to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- While the oven heats up, begin assembling the pizza.
- Spread two tablespoons of pizza sauce on the pita bread.
- Add mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle on top minced onions, oregano leaves and garlic powder, or any seasonings that you choose.
- Put the pita pizza on a toaster oven tray that is covered in aluminum foil. Place it in the toaster oven for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden-brown.
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.
