More About This Recipe

  • I've been preparing pizza with pita bread for a long time because it's so easy, we always have it hand and the texture is crunchy and irresistible. This time I prepared them with Brussels sprouts and bacon… delicious! This pizza is a little spicy due to the pepper Jack cheese, the garlic and red pepper flakes. If you're making this pizza for kids, I recommend using mozzarella cheese and less garlic. Enjoy!
