Accidental pizza

I’m kind of obsessive compulsive when it comes to using up leftovers. I was raised not to waste food, and it drives me crazy when things languish in our fridge. So today when I was making dinner I realized I had the makings of a little pizza that would use up some soy sausage and homemade tomato sauce that were sitting in two little Glad containers.

I spread the sauce – a mixture of tomatoes, onions and basil – on a pita (cut in half so Mike and I could each have some) and then sprinkled the Italian sausage flavored soy crumbles on top. Then I added some shredded mozzarella and heated it in a 400-degree oven for about 5 minutes.

It was wonderful! One of the best things I’ve ever created with leftovers. And if you use the soy crumbles and only eat half, you can consider it a pretty healthy snack.
