Personal Pita Pizzas

Pizza makes the perfectly easy lunch or dinner, but it's too much of a pain to make hand-made dough every time I'm craving pizza. Store-bought doughs are too big sometimes and everybody wants different toppings. Say hello to the pita pizza! I stuff whole wheat pitas with all sorts of things, but they were great for a rushed pizza dough. If pitas go on sale remember to buy several bags and freeze them. I've baked these pizzas on still-frozen pita bread and it turned out great. Serve it up with a romaine salad and you have a perfectly portioned meal. This recipe is kid friendly, go crazy with the toppings!

Husband Rating: 4 1/2 stars

2 whole wheat pitas
4 TB spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Desired toppings (ideas: pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, pineapple, green pepper, diced onion, shredded spinach, canadian bacon, ham, jalapenos or green onions)

Preheat oven to 400. Spread spaghetti sauce over each pita. Layer with cheese and desired toppings. Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning. Bake for approximately 7-8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and pita is toasty. Cut and serve.

Oh this looks super yummy. I've used English muffins for a pizza base, but not pita breat. What an interesting way to shake things up! Thank you so much for linking up to my summer lunch party!!!!
