I could eat these Ricotta Mini Pizzas until they came out of my ears. The taste reminds me of the cannelloni my Uncle Jack used to make when we were kids. This easy recipe...

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler or toaster oven.
  2. Spread each pita pocket with 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese, then evenly divide the Mighty Green Sauce on top. Dot each pizza with diced mozzarella.
  3. Heat the mini pizzas under a broiler or in a toaster oven until the cheese is well melted and beginning to lightly brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Serve.

Chef Tips

Mighty Green Sauce is really a type of cooked kale pesto. It is great to keep in the freezer as a standby. It can go over pasta, get stirred into rice or soups or be spooned onto pizza as here. It sure helps kale to get around on your plate!

If you can’t find mini pita pockets, use 2 of the regular size and put ½ the ingredients on each and broil as in step 3.
