Sara Lee Pita Pockets

If you haven't figured it out yet, Pita Pockets are a great sandwich option for Weight Watchers.

I buy Sara Lee's Mr. Pita Bread which has 12 pita pockets (1/2 of each "Loaf" in the bag).  Each pocket is only 2 pts, and can be filled with tuna salad, chicken salad, grilled chicken or skirt steak, ground beef.  Top each pocket off with lettuce, cucumbers, shredded radish or jicima. I just ate a fat, yummy tuna salad pita pocket that had a total of only 4 points!

I've also stuffed a pocket with 1/4 cup of low fat cheese (such as Sargento's 4 cheese Mexican blend) and grilled it......  It tasted somewhere between a grilled cheese and cheese crisp. (4 pts)

I'm sure there are other options for Pita as a pizza crust...what are your ideas? Do you have any recipes to share?


  1. I would stuff it with chicken salad. I make some with the canned chicken breast, a little light mayo, red grapes, celery, salt, pepper and some finely chopped fresh spinach.

  2. Tammy...your chicken salad recipe sounds delicious! Good idea!
