Pita Pizza2

What do you do when you need to clean up your fridge?  Well, you make pizza of course!  We had little bits of everything leftover sitting in the fridge and so we decided to make a quick pita pizza topped with prosciutto, mushrooms and arugula.  It not only helped clear our fridge of leftovers, it also made for a perfect lunch! So if you’ve got some leftover meat, marinara sauce, cheese and greens, here’s how you can use them:
