I first made these golden wedges when my college roommates and I wanted garlic bread but only had pitas on hand. My husband likes this "skinny" version even better than the original! —Christine Mattiko of Dallastown, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

I added a little cayenne pepper too. I spread some spicy 3 pepper hummus on them as a light snack.

I make this recipe all the time - it's great with spaghetti dinner - and scales down easily (or up if you're feeding a crowd). All the ingredients are things I have on-hand. Yum!
