Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray an aluminum lined cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. 
     
  • Mix spinach, pepperoni, pizza sauce, black olives and cheese together in a bowl. 
  • Make egg wash: Add water to egg and beat together for a few seconds.
  • Cut pitas in half, then open (use a knife to gently slice open fi necessary) each pita  and stuff it with about 3 tbsps of the filling * Do not overfill or it will be too difficult to seal and will rip. 
  • Seal the pita with the egg wash by running the egg wash inside the rim of the pita on each side with a pastry brush. Be careful not to use too much and  'soak it' or it will get soggy and fall apart. Then brush egg wash over the pita until it's covered, but not soaked. 
  • Take a fork and press down along the cut of the pita (on the straight side), as you would a pie crust, sealing it in.

  • Sprinkle each pita with parmesan cheese, distributing equally between the pitas. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. 
  • Serve hot as a meal or snack with raw veggies (like carrots and celery) and berries or pack for a lunch (they can be reheated or eaten cold). You can also freeze them.
