Ever craved pizza but not wanted to waste all your calories on one slice that won't even fill you up? I have, so I started focusing on the toppings of my pizza to be healthy and fulfilling and the bread to just be there to hold the toppings. That's where the pita pockets came in. This is an easy recipe that is guilt free and tastes better than going out! *oil free *vegan *GF Option

Ingredients: Feel free to add/substitute your favorite veggies :)
