Greek Pizza:
PER SERVING (entire recipe): 277 calories, 4.75g fat, 990mg sodium, 38g carbs, 8.5g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 19g protein -- POINTSŪ value 5*

1/2 cup chopped spinach, thawed from frozen, squeezed dry
2 tbsp. crumbled fat-free feta cheese
1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
1 stick light string cheese
1 whole-wheat or high-fiber pita
3 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes
2 thin slices red onion, rings separated and halved
1 tbsp. sliced black olives
4 slices plum tomato
Dash dried oregano or 1/4 tsp. fresh oregano
Optional: salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine spinach, feta cheese, and garlic. Mix well and set aside.

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a food processor or blender -- blend at high speed until cheese takes on a shredded or grated consistency. (Or just tear string cheese into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray, and lay pita in center. Spread crushed tomatoes over the pita, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Evenly top with spinach-feta mixture, and then cover with shredded/grated string cheese.

Place onion, olive, and tomato slices on top of your "pizza," and sprinkle with oregano.

Bake in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes, until pizza is hot and string cheese has melted.

If you like, season to taste with salt and pepper. Cut into wedges, and enjoy!
