Fruity Pizza Bites
Makes 10 mini rectangles
Serves 2

Ingredients
1/2 piece lavash or any light flatbread
1 nectarine
1 kiwi
1 sprig fresh tarragon (if desired)
¼ cup part-skim ricotta, chilled
¼ mango
1 heaping tablespoon non-fat plain Greek yogurt, chilled
1 lemon wedge, optional
Cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (toaster oven or conventional). Cut the flatbread into 10 rectangular pieces.
  2. Place the flatbread on a lightly greased baking sheet and heat for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
  3. Dice the kiwi, nectarine, and mango. Roughly chop the tarragon if you want to spice things up.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the chilled ricotta and Greek yogurt until mixed.
  5. Top each flatbread with a small spoonful of the ricotta-yogurt mixture, then any choice of fruit, then tarragon if using. Serve with squeezed lemon, if desired.

Handy Hint: No need to stick to the suggested toppings. Feeling tropical? Try pineapple, shredded coconut, and papaya. Chocolate, please? Go for cacao nips, fresh chopped mint, and banana.
