Pita Pizzas (mini)

These are a favorite with the kids because they are tiny and cute. They are also really cheap and easy to make.

8(4-inch) whole wheat pita pockets
1/2 cup of spinach puree or if your kids scream at the color of green then maybe try carrot puree with some of the pizzas.
2 cups bottled tomato sauce
2 cups thinly sliced part-skim mozzarella

1. Preheat oven to 400

2. Spread spinach puree on each pita so that the spinach comes to within about 1/2 inch of the edge. Then spread the sauce over the spinach. It should cover the spinach and come within 1/4 of the edge of the pita. Now lay the cheese over the sauce, covering any place where the green comes through. :)

3. Place the pizzas on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake till the cheese is melted and begins to brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Let the pizzas cool 5 minutes before serving so the cheese cools and doesn't pull off (and the spinach stays completely invisible.)
