Whole Wheat Pita Pizza

We loooove pizza. This recipe is the perfect size for a personal pizza and it's a much healthier alternative to the homemade pizza we usually make.

This recipe reminds me of when my mom used to make us little pizzas using naan as the was so good! There’s something about a whole wheat pita that just gives such a great texture and hearty flavor to the pizza crust...and it's very filling!
The best part about this entire recipe is that it literally took me about 15 minutes to make. Quick and easy?? Yes, please. This one is definitely a winner!

Whole Wheat Pita Pizza
Recipe adapted from Whole Living
4 whole-wheat pita breads
4-5 sun dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
fresh basil, finely chopped 

Spinach and Basil Pesto
1 bag fresh baby spinach
1 cup fresh basil
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

For the pesto:
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until well blended. It's that easy! :)
To assemble the pizzas: 
Arrange pita breads on two baking sheets. Spread about 4 tablespoons of pesto on each. Scatter chopped sun dried tomatoes on top, and then sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle fresh basil on top. Transfer the baking sheets to the oven, and bake the pizzas until the mozzarella has melted, about 20 minutes. Remove the pizzas from the oven, and transfer to a cutting board. Cut each pita pizza into wedges and serve!
