Helpful hints

  • See Spicy BBQ Sauce recipe on DaVita.com. It has only 43 mg sodium per 2 tablespoons compared to 125-460 mg sodium in commercially prepared barbecue sauce.
  • Eat pita pizzas promptly after baking; otherwise they may become too crispy.
  • Check the nutrition labels and buy the brand of feta cheese and pitas with the lowest amount of sodium.
