Pita Pizza Pockets
After school can be a tough time for little tummies. Often kids come home famished, but dinner time is just around the corner. What to serve? Pita Pizza Pockets are just enough to tide them over until dinner without going overboard. Half a pita for little ones or two halves for older kids should work well.
