Not only is today Father’s Day – Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads out there – but it is Grumpy and my anniversary!  Happy Anniversary to my Grumpy Sweetheart 🙂  I love you with my heart and soul.  You ole Grump you!

Yesterday my mom and I drove to Indianapolis – a long grueling 12 hour drive that took us 13 hours because of a 1 hour hold up in Ohio that took us all of 5 miles down the road – if that!  We are staying with my nephews while my brother and his wife are off vacationing for their 20 year anniversary!
So, Grumpy and I are not together today – and by the end of this week, will have seen very little of each other in the last two weeks.  I’ll be ready for some big hugs and lots of love from him by the time I get to see him again!   I’m sure the one to run and greet me at the door though will be Rotten Little Rudy Rut-ton……and not Grumpy, but hey, I love him too 🙂  Rudy is the affectionate one of the two and love to cuddle with me most!

Another thing I love is this BBQ Vegetarian Chicken Pita Pizza.  If you have been one of my facebook followers, you have heard me talk about eating this several times a week for dinner.  Especially when I’m alone for dinner.  I have not always put jalapeno slices on this, and this time was the first time I actually had some fresh cilantro, so I put a little that on top too.  Oh. My. Goodness.  Was this ever good.  Being careful with what your eating has never been more yummy or fun.  Yes, to date I am down almost 15 pounds.  10 more to go and I’ll be happy!  What do you love to enjoy when watching your calorie intake?  I’d love to know….maybe it will become a favorite of mine too!

BBQ Vegetarian Chicken Pita Pizza
as made by HoneyB
Printable Recipe

1 Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread
2 tablespoons Sweet Baby Ray’s Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce, divided
1 Morningstar Farms Chick’ Patty
1/4 cup 2% shredded mozzarella cheese
thin slices onion
thin slices fresh jalapeno pepper slices or pepperoncini pepper slices
chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place pita bread on cookie sheet and spread 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce over top.

Microwave Chick’ Patty for 40 seconds, then dice into bite sized pieces.  Place in bowl and top with remaining BBQ Sauce and toss to coat chick pieces.

Layer pita pizza as follows, cheese, onion slices, chick’ pieces, and jalapeno slices.  Place in oven and bake 10 minutes or until pizza reaches desired browness (I like mine nice and browned!)  Remove from oven and let sit to cool about 5 minutes.  Top with chopped cilantro.  Enjoy!

This is approximately 325 calories.  I’m not a nutritionist but I am a well seasoned dieter.  🙂  This is an awesome high protien, high fiber, low fat but yummy meal that is really filling.  You can still add a salad if you wish with a low fat or no fat dressing and still stay under 500 calories for your meal!

    Thanks for the pita pizza recipe , I'm diabetic and have discovered these at Walmart and have been enjoying them ever since. I no longer feel deprived or worried about my carbs.

    P.S. I have even made gourmet hot dogs and they are yummy.
