Comments

  1. My husband made these for me and we used the orrowheat thins. I figure with a little less cheese, sauce, veggies and thins, this would be about 3+. The only thing we will do different next time is maybe tear the basil into smaller pieces and use some garlic salt. It needed just a little more flavor but REALLY good. Thank you!

  2. Where do you buy those pita breads and about how big are they in size?
