Pesto Pita Pizzas

My go-to recipe for pretty much any occasion. It’s great for guests (you can even get your friends to help and assemble them together), game night finger food, or just as a quick and easy meal you can throw together any day of the week. This is a fairly vague recipe, in the best way, because it really is the definition of no-fuss. Did I mention it’s absolutely delicious?
