Quick and Easy Pizza Dip


  • 1 cup low fat or nonfat ricotta cheese

  • 3 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto

  • 5-6 leaves basil, thinly chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 pitas, cut into pizza triangle shapes, regular or whole wheat

  • Cooking spray, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)-flavored

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 3 carrots, cut into long sticks

  • 3 ribs celery, cut into long strips

  • 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1/2 head broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, pesto and basil. Season with a little salt and pepper and set aside while you make the pitas.

Spray the pitas with cooking spray and season them with the garlic powder and oregano.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake until crispy, about 5-6 minutes. Serve the ricotta pizza dip with the veggies and pita chips. Yum-o!
