  • 4 pita pocket breads
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 200 g shaved leg ham, trimmed of fat, roughly chopped
  • 300 g mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 100 g reduced-fat grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 dash each of salt and pepper
  • 4 quick sprays of olive oil cooking spray (about 1/4 tsp)
  • 57.14 g arugula leaves (rocket leaves)


Preheat oven to 425ºF. Place pita breads on 2 baking trays. Spread evenly with tomato paste. Top with shaved ham and mushrooms. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Spray pizzas with olive oil spray to lightly coat. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese melts and pitta bread is crisp around the edges. Top each with arugula/rocket leaves.


Spinach leaves can substituted for arugula. Can use chopped ham instead of lean ham shank (regular ham may be higher in fat and sodium).
