Make Your Own Pizza

A few weeks ago, Naomi posted a weekly menu featuring "Make Your Own Pizza "Night...I tried it, and it was kind of a pain to get the crust ready and into 3 small size crusts.....but the family really enjoyed it and I wanted to try it again.

Well, someone at work told me this hint and it REALLY works.

Instead of using Pizza Dough, use Pita Bread! I bought a package of whole wheat pita bread (came 5 in a package)....treated it just like store-bought pizza crust. We put sauce and toppings on it, and popped it in the oven.

It was super crisp, and thin......QUITE DELISH!

Cut the prep time down to almost nothing!
