Choose part-skim ricotta instead of regular; it has comparable creaminess, with fewer calories and less fat. Whole-wheat pitas are fiber-rich -- and tasty.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil; arrange pita halves on sheet, cut side up.

  • In a small bowl, combine ricotta, oregano, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Dividing evenly, spread ricotta mixture on pitas, and top with spinach and bocconcini. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Broil until cheese is melted and starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes, rotating sheet from front to back halfway through baking. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Bocconcini are bite-size morsels of fresh mozzarella. Look for them at specialty food stores and Italian markets, as well as many supermarkets; they're usually packaged in water or whey for freshness.

Used 2 regular-sized pitas and smaller pearl mozzarella and these were impressive for the minimal amount of work and time they took. We also used homemade ricotta which was whole milk. Super tasty and perfect for a quick weeknight meal - will definitely do again!

These were super easy, and even my 8-year old daughter loved them! Would recommend a small side salad for a complete meal!

In step 2, you might consider fresh basil mixed with the oregano and chopped fresh grape tomatoes.
