What's for Lunch - Fri., 10/12

BBQ Chicken Pita Pizza (Order Entree #1)
Tomato-Cheese Pita Pizza (Order Entree #2)
(Broccoli Topping Available)
More Salad Bar Veggie Sides
Caesar Salad
Fresh Pear

We make these ourselves - we do not serve highly processed frozen pizzas. For our various pizzas, we use  the Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we previously used.  Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate).  The cheese is a USDA commodity part skim mozzarella.  Ingredients are cultured pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes. The sodium is 240mg/oz -  we use 2 ounces. The broccoli is fresh.

I might avoid the chicken version.  The chicken is a pre-cooked Tyson product.  It is described as "1/2" diced chicken meat" and as "boneless, skinless, and fully cooked." It is chicken breast.

Some people commented when we last served this pizza that the sauce was too chunky. They did use a pomodoro sauce but I don't believe they will continue to do so.  And , if nto this time then by the next - the pita will be whole wheat. I know the food service dept has been working hard to find a source of tasty WW pitas.

Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
