My Favorites: Pita Pizzas
Corey & I both work full time during the week, and neither of us are very good at eating a real lunch while we're at work. Usually by the time we get home we're both starving. Since we try not to eat out too often, we like to have a few good quick and easy recipes in our arsenal for those nights when we're too hungry to wait for dinner. This is one of our all-time favorites. The possibilities are endless, it takes only minutes to prepare, and is on the table quicker than we could go through a drive-thru. Did I mention that it's delicious? What's not to like!
