Quick & easy insalata pizzas
Pita bread is topped with fresh cheese, herbs and baked until warm and bubbly. Finish things off with a green salad piled high for a heathy mini pizza dinner.
Here we use pita bread as our pizza crust and top it with freshly grated cheeses and herbs. These make a great base for the salad that we pile on top of our warm personal-size pizzas. You can use any type of salad, but we share our favorite version below.
