  • 1 cup low fat or nonfat ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto
  • 5-6 leaves basil, thinly chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 pitas, cut into pizza triangle shapes, regular or whole wheat
  • Cooking spray, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)-flavored

  • 3 carrots, cut into long sticks
  • 3 ribs celery, cut into long strips

  • 1/2 head broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, pesto and basil. Season the mixture with a little salt and pepper, then set it aside while you make the pitas.
  3. Spray the pitas with cooking spray and season them with the garlic powder and oregano. Place the pitas on a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven until crispy, about 5-6 minutes.
