  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium saucepan over moderate heat, warm the oil. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until they begin to soften and caramelize, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, carrots, bell pepper, zucchini, and oregano, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the spinach, stir to combine, and continue simmering to wilt the spinach, about 1 minute.
  5. Remove the vegetables from the heat and let cool. Purée the vegetables with a blender, leaving the vegetables chunky, or simply leave the vegetables whole.
  6. Open the pita pockets and place a quarter of the chicken cubes inside each one. Add a few tablespoons of sauce to each pita and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  7. Arrange the pita pizza pockets on a large baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Recipe Tips

This recipe makes a lot of sauce! Save leftovers in the freezer for another meal.

Add your favorite vegetables to the sauce, keep it chunky for added texture, or puree smooth to "hide" added vegetables.
