BLT Pizza Wedges

Who says a BLT needs to be a sandwich? We took one of America’s favorite sandwiches and turned it into a light lunch or appetizer.

Let me start by saying, I am a huge fan on BLT sandwiches. This is a recipe that is perfect for parties/get-togethers due to the snack sized nature of the Pizza Wedges.  Also, you can use this recipe as a jumping off point for other “Pizza Wedge”- esque dishes.

Yield: 4 servings
1 6-inch whole-wheat pita

Nonstick cooking spray
