“Pita” Pizzas

Last night, we made “pita” pizzas for dinner. I put “pita” in quotation marks because only Dustin uses pita bread; I prefer to use garlic naan bread for my crust. These are super quick and easy to make and they’re better for me than regular pizza because I am lactose sensitive. A while back, we found this awesome substitute called Okanagan’s Soya Co. and it’s super convincing! We always have a few packs of their mozzarella in the fridge. The texture and the way it melts is just like real cheese. Sadly we ran out of spinach but I guess it makes for a better photo this way….
