Veggie Pita Pizza Snacks #EEinNYC

Be sure to check out the other recipes [1] I ate on my trip to New York City!  

At the fun cooking school in New York there were some appetizers ready when we got there.  One of them was these little Veggie Pita Pizza Snacks.  They were SO good!

Active Time:   20 minutes

Total Time:  20 minutes

Amount:   8 servings


1 cup Essential Everyday™ Fat Free Cottage Cheese

½ (8 ounce) package Essential Everyday Neufchâtel Cheese, softened- apparently this is a new “in” cheese

½ (1 ounce) packet Essential Everyday Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix

4 whole wheat pitas

1 cup Essential Everyday Fancy Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese

4 cups fresh veggies (shredded carrots, chopped broccoli, chopped cauliflower, chopped red and yellow bell pepper, shredded zucchini)


  1. Combine cottage cheese, neufchâtel cheese and ranch seasoning mix in a food processor or blender.
  2. Purée until well combined and smooth.  Spread over pitas.
  3. Top with shredded cheese and veggies.  Cut each pita in quarters.

We did suggest cutting the pita in half (thus lowering the carb count).  The good stuff was on top of the pita- why fill up on bread?!
