Helpful hints
Eat pita pizzas promptly after baking; otherwise they may become too crispy.
Check the nutrition labels and buy the brand of feta cheese and pitas with the lowest amount of sodium.
To keep sodium lower use Spicy BBQ Sauce from the recipe on DaVita.com. It has only 43 mg sodium per 2 tablespoons compared to 125-460 mg sodium in commercially prepared barbecue sauce.
