Easy Pita Pizza's

Another one of my favorite meals is good old fashion pizza. Boring, typical, all american pizza. But I do have to say that I am actually kind of a pizza snob. Yep!  It must be thin crust and done right.  Fresh mozzerella and homemade sauce are A MUST!  But let's face it, not everynight is a good night to cook, right?!  One ingredient that you will always find in our pantry is pita bread.  There is SOOOO much that you can do with pita bread and it is really cheap!  At Costco, you can get a bag of 10 pita breads for $2.39!  Can you say, AWESOME! (you have to say that with a pitched voice!)  hee hee
Here is a great weeknight dinner that can be thrown together quickly and the entire family will enjoy it, because they can have whatever they want!  I'll be the first to say, this is not a genious recipe, but it is easy and fun and can often be found in your cupboard.  ENJOY!
4-8 pita breads (1 per person or 1 can feed 3 kids)
1/2 cup of your favorite spaghetti or pizza sauce
grated mozzerella cheese
Feel free to use your favorite pizza toppings! 

This is one of our favorites!
substitute pizza sauce with pesto sauce
1/2 cup of artichoke hearts
1/4 cup of feta cheese
1/4 cup cooked, ground italian turkey sausage
fresh basil
1- 2 sliced roma tomatoes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On the pita breads, spread lightly with tomato sauce or basil pesto sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and your favorite toppings. Individualize each pita bread as you and your family would like!

Spread the pitas on a large baking sheet and place in the preheated oven 8 minutes, or until the pita bread has reached desired crispness. Serve whole, or cut into slices. ENJOY!
