Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss strawberries and cherries in 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Spread on baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat medium saute pan over medium-high heat and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add onions and stir frequently until onions begin to brown. 
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt. Cook 1 more minute and then remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Place whole wheat pitas on a nonstick baking sheet. Brush pitas with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt. 
  5. Evenly distribute roasted strawberries and cherries, cheese, onions onto pitas. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees or until edges of pitas begin to turn golden brown.
  6. Top each pita with arugula and cut into triangles. Drizzle with addition balsamic vinegar and top with fresh black pepper and salt if desired. Serves 2-4.
