Mediterranean Lemon Shrimp Pita Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

 12 medium raw shrimp, shelled and deveined (defrosted if using frozen shrimp)
 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
 2 tsp lemon juice
 1/8 tsp kosher salt
 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
 1/2 tsp garlic powder
 2 oat bran or other whole grain pitas
 Freshly ground black pepper
 1 cup baby spinach leaves
 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
 3 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
 1/2 cup thinly sliced zucchini rounds
 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F


In a small mixing bowl, combine the shrimp, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, red pepper flakes and garlic powder.


Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes.


While shrimp is marinating, place pitas on a baking pan.


Spread 1-1/2 teaspoons of olive oil onto each pita, going up to the edge.


Grind some black pepper over the oil.


Divide the spinach evenly between the two pitas and place on top of the olive oil. Do the same with the mozzarella, then the Parmesan, and finally the zucchini rounds.


Finally, place 6 shrimp on each pita pizza and drizzle the marinade evenly over the pizzas.


Add a few grinds of black pepper over the top.


Place pan in oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and pita is toasty.


While pizzas are in the oven, place the balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan set over high heat.


Reduce the vinegar until it is thick and syrupy, about 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons. Be sure to watch closely since this will only take a few minutes and can burn very quickly.


Drizzle the balsamic glaze over each pita.


Cut each pita into 4 slices.
