Pesto Mini Pizza
12 mini pitas
6 tablespoons pizza sauce
8 ounces part skim milk mozzarella cheese, shredded
12 slices of pepperoni

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off the edges of pita bread with a sharp knife and gently separate the halves. Place the pitas on a baking sheet with the edges of the bread curving upward.
Top 12 of the pitas with one tablespoon of pizza sauce, one tablespoon mozzarella cheese and one slice of pepperoni. Top each of the other 12 with 1/2 tablespoon of pesto sauce, 1 tablespoon mozzarella cheese, and a slice of tomato.
Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve immediately. Makes 24 mini pizzas.
