Meat Lover's Pizza

All You SEPTEMBER 2011

  • Yield: 8 6-inch pizzas (serving size: 2 pizzas)
  • Cook time:50 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$2.43

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 large tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lb. total), cored and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 6-inch pitas
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, optional

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with foil. Mist foil with cooking spray.

2. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes and tomato paste; cook, stirring often, until thick and pulpy, about 10 minutes. Add turkey and cook, stirring often and breaking up any large clumps with a spoon, until most of liquid has evaporated, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in thyme and season with salt and pepper.

3. Using a serrated knife, cut each pita in half horizontally. Place rounds, cut side up, on baking sheets. Divide turkey mixture among rounds (about 1/2 cup each) and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan, if desired. Bake until cheese has melted and pizzas are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
