“I've been making these for a few weeks now and I can't seem to get enough of them! It comes together easily and it a great filling alternative to a loaded, fattening slice of regular pizza. Add whatever veggies you like to personalize this dish. I've always used a pita shell (unsplit) as the crust, but you could probably use a slice of toast or a toasted thin roll instead. I would not recommend using a tortilla because I don't think it would hold up.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler of electric oven or toaster oven.
  2. If pita shell is hard, microwave for 10-15 seconds until it is pliable. Do not split it or it probably won't support the toppings.
  3. Slice tomato so you have 4 thin slices.
  4. Arrange slices on pita so that it is mostly covered.
  5. Spread cottage cheese over tomato slices.
  6. Sprinkle cottage cheese with basil and oregano.
  7. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over all.
  8. Top with any other veggies or toppings you wish.
  9. Place on broiler tray and broil about 6-8 inches from the heat until cheese is melted and starting to brown (about 7-10 minutes), watching carefully so it does not burn.
  10. If the tomato is still cool, you can microwave it for 10-20 seconds until it is heated through.
  11. I am not sure how to broil in a gas oven. I am sorry for the lack of directions on that method.
