Instead of using pizza crust, why not try pita bread? This recipe is great topped with Italian sausage, green peppers and mushrooms, but feel free to use your own favorite toppings. These pizzas can also be grilled easily. Grill over medium heat 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Not only are these pizzas delicious, but they are economical and child-friendly.

  1. Alison,
    Wanted to know if you had any dinner recipes for Passover? I’m having a few families over during Passover for dinner one night and I’m trying to find something to make.
