Fancy Pita Pizzas!

So I got very side tracked and I haven’t posted in a while! I ran into my friend Katie (who is very supportive of my blogging), and she reminded me that I have been slacking on the recipe posting! It was just what I needed and here I am back at it!

I love making pita pizzas.  They are a great way to make a quick, easy, personal sized pizza.  They are so much fun to make, since you can really do what ever you want with them.  I decided to be fancy and make one with peaches and brie, and one with pesto and caprese toppings.  The great thing about making these pizzas at home is that you are controlling your portions, but also the ingredients.  I chose whole wheat pitas with fruit and veggie toppings, which is a much healthier way to enjoy pizza.  Also, shout out to my brother for giving me some cute little tomatoes from his garden, which were featured on my caprese pita pizza.

Here’s the recipe!
