Thank goodness it’s Friday!

I have to admit that this week I was a little bummed. I don’t know if it’s because Bella cheated on Edward, or if it’s because I got rid of THIRTEEN pairs of shoes yesterday. Yes, THIRTEEN! It’s not like I ever wore them, but seriously getting rid of shoes is like throwing away memories.

So I took myself shoe shopping to make up for it.

What?

I’m a girl… it’s what we do. Anyway I feel much better now. I even made myself a cute little appetizer to start the weekend the right.

And I think that you just have to make these little pita pizzas too! They are my new favorite thing.

If you’ve never roasted berries before then now is the time to start; it’s so wonderful! The heat from the oven brings out the sugars and juice, giving you a melt in your mouth sweetness that will make you want to savor every single bite of the fruit.

Roasting berries had been on my bucket list for a while, but throwing them on a whole wheat pita and topping it with caramelized onion, mozzarella, and arugula? Completely spur of the moment and just a little bit heavenly.

I served these at a party and they disappeared in seconds!

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 10 dark red cherries, pitted and halved
  • 3 or 4 whole wheat pitas (I use 100 calorie pitas)
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • Salt and pepper
