In an adventurous mood? Try your stir-fry on a slice of pizza! All you have to do is sauté your favorite assorted vegetables, then scatter them over whole-wheat crusts or pita breads for a mouthwatering, wholesome meal.
2-3 tsp. sesame seed oil, olive oil, or canola oil, or oil spray
1 lb. assorted vegetables, such as onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers, cut into long, thin strips
1 tsp. dry oregano
1 tsp. chopped fresh garlic
1 tsp. dry basil
6-in. whole-wheat pizza crusts, or 4 whole-wheat pita breads
1/2 c. low-sodium, low-sugar tomato sauce
1/4 c. fat-free mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add vegetables and oregano, garlic, and dry basil. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, until vegetables start to soften. On a nonstick baking tray, place pizza crusts. Pour equal amounts of tomato sauce in the center of each crust. Using the back of a serving spoon, spread the sauce evenly, using a circular motion. Divide the sautéed vegetables into 4 equal parts, and spread on each crust. Sprinkle with cheese and fresh basil. Bake at 400 degrees until the crust is crispy around the edges, about 8 minutes.
