I’m always on the hunt for super easy balanced dinner recipes. We’re busier than ever, and sometimes chopping ingredients, grating cheese, and making a mess of our kitchen at the end of a long workday just isn’t going to happen. Meet your new favourite lazy weeknight dinner.

 

Pita pizzas have been a staple in my routine since my university days. Pita pizzas are a great dinner option for one because they’re already in a single serving. They’re also a great option for a family because you can customize ingredients and allow everyone to individualize their pizza. By cutting some extra corners and steps in this recipe, this simple weeknight meal just got even easier! With only 6 ingredients, you can have a healthy meal on the table in 15-minutes, and avoid any extra prep up front like chopping veggies or grating cheese.
