Most any cheese will work in this recipe. Blue cheese and mozzarella are especially good options.

These individual pizzas are topped with a tasty duo of fresh asparagus spears and sliced plum tomatoes, which are both full of vitamins and heart-healthy antioxidants. Using a small amount of richly flavored Parmesan keeps saturated fat to a minimum—or try adding your own special touch with other bold cheeses such as blue or feta. Make sure to choose whole-grain pitas for an extra fiber boost.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven 450°.

Step 2

Steam asparagus, covered, 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 3

Combine oil and garlic. Brush over pitas. Arrange tomato slices and asparagus on pitas. Sprinkle with basil, pepper, and salt. Top evenly with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 450º for 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are golden.
