Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

By Kimberly Adler-Morelli

This is an easy recipe for one personal-sized pizza — and fun for kids to join in making, too.


  • 1 large whole grain pita bread 
  • ⅛ cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • ⅛ cup bottled pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Favorite pizza toppings (e.g., sliced mushrooms, less-fat pepperoni, chopped green pepper, onion, pineapple chunks, lean ham)


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. Place pita on a baking sheet.
  2. Spread ricotta cheese over the pita. Spoon pizza sauce over the cheese and add toppings. 
  3. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top and bake 6 to 8 minutes.
