Mexican Pita Pizzas

Tomatoes and refried beans serve as the sauce in these pita pizzas, topped with melted cheese and fresh veggies. Kids will have fun personalizing the pizzas by decorating their pita pie with unique designs using the lettuce, onions and tomatoes. This recipe comes to us from our friends at ReadySetEat.

Adult: Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Together:  Place 1/4 cup of the drained tomatoes in a small bowl and set aside. Mix the remaining tomatoes with the beans in a small bowl. Spread even amounts of the tomato bean mixture onto each pita pocket. Sprinkle each pita pocket with shredded cheese.

 Place the pita pizzas onto a baking sheet and transfer to the oven. Bake for 4-5 minutes, turn the sheet for even baking and cook 4-5 minutes more, or until the edges of the pita pockets are lightly browned and the cheese melts.

 Top the baked pita pizzas with lettuce, onion and the reserved tomatoes.
