"I love the idea of using pita bread as pizza crust. Our individual sized pizza's turned out beautifully. I went with a selection of different toppings: broccoli, green peppers, onion, pepperoni, cheese, pineapple, jalapenos, and their tomatoes & basil as well. YUM!"

"I put these on the grill for a little extra-added flavor. You can use any kind of cheese you prefer if you don't like asiago. A quick and easy meal - thanks!"
