Have a hankering for Pizza? Our recipe for super easy & flavorful Pita Pizza is just for you! A crispy whole wheat pita crust replaces traditional carb heavy dough and makes the perfect healthy pizza option! We kept our toppings simple with fresh ripe tomatoes, cheese and torn spinach leaves. This is such a fun dinner to do with the whole family! Everyone can pick their favorite toppings and make their own custom pizza. Just be careful not to let your toppings get too heavy especially when using toppings like tomatoes. We used a paper towel to lightly pat our tomatoes after we sliced it to help absorb some moisture and make it lighter on the crust. So grab a pack of Joseph's Whole Wheat Pitas and make tonight Pizza night!
