Pita Pizzas (A Quick Lunch Idea)

Pita Pizzas are a favorite in our house. They only take 7 minutes to make. Plus, a quick lunch idea that the kids love is a mom’s best friend because, well, you know why.

Pita Pizzas are awesome because you can top them with whatever you like (mushrooms and olives, pepperoni and sausage, pineapple and Canadian bacon, or go a little nuts and try fig and pine nuts).

We chose to top our pizzas with cheese, pepperoni, olives and fresh parsley. It’s so good. I think we will make these once a week.

We had a lot of fun as a family putting the pita pizzas together. The kids sprinkled the cheese and picked their toppings. I have little chefs in the making. One day they will be able to make it all on their own {enter a squeal of joy}!
