Servings: 4

2 strips bacon, chopped
1/2 cup (125 mL) small broccoli florets
4 Greek-style pitas (no pockets) or regular pitas
3/4 cup (175 mL) pasta or pizza sauce
16 thin slices pepperoni (1 oz/30 g), optional
8 green pimiento-stuffed olives, sliced
4 mushrooms, sliced
Half sweet red pepper, chopped
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


In small skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until almost crisp. Drain on paper towel, patting off fat.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan of boiling water, cook broccoli for 2 minutes. Drain.

Arrange pitas on large baking sheet. Spread each with sauce almost to edge. Top each with one-quarter of the bacon, broccoli, pepperoni (if using), olives, mushrooms, red pepper and cheese.

Bake in bottom third of 450°F (230°C) oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are golden and cheese is melted.
