When I’m strained for time and in a bind, this is my No. 1 go-to healthy meal. These mini pita pizzas are filling and will satisfy your craving for any original greasy, and extra cheesy pizza.
I have made so many different variations of these, including grilled veggies topped with fresh shaved parmesan to classic cheese pizza with natural marinara sauce and turkey pepperonis. These little bundles of goodness are very simple to make and perfect to take to work for lunch or dinner. They are also a great a starter dish or appetizer!
