1 large red onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 whole wheat pita rounds
1 large tomato, quartered & sliced or 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
3 mushrooms sliced
3/4 cup shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese or try almond cheese
1/4 cup finely shredded Romano cheese
1/4 cup small fresh basil leaves or shredded fresh basil
In a medium sauce pan cook onion slices and garlic in hot olive oil over medium heat, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until onion is very tender, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and cook until they are tender. Set aside. Toast pita bread lightly on each side under the broiler. Top toasted side of each bread round with onion mixture, sliced tomato and cheeses.
Return the bread rounds to the broiler until cheese is melted and toppings are heated through. Remove from broiler and top with basil before serving.
I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it was sent to me from a very reliable chef, MOM!! She hasn't lost her touch in the 37 years that I have been feasting on her cooking. She prepares this recipe with almond cheese to keep the cholesterol out. I hope to give this a go soon!! TRAINER TODD
