Helpful hints

  • Check labels on pitas and pizza sauce and select the lowest sodium brands.
  • Frozen vegetarian crumbles are a soy product that can be used as a replacement for ground beef. If desired you can substitute lean ground beef or turkey.
  • For a thin crust pizza open the pita and split into 2 round pieces. Carbohydrate is reduced to 22 grams.
