Pita Pizzas & Garden Progress

Usually we make pita pizzas on the grill, but since the weather has been less-than-pleasant around here, I tried making them in the oven instead, and they turned out great!
These are super-easy to make.  I use whole wheat pitas as the crust (sprayed with a thin layer of olive oil), and then just layer on the sauce & toppings.  We usually make a quick homemade sauce which consists of crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, salt, sugar, oregano, crushed red pepper, and a little dash of malt vinegar - all mixed up and microwaved for a minute or so, just to get everything dissolved.  It is probably the laziest pizza sauce ever, but it works!
Then we just top it with mozzarella, mushrooms, spinach, oregano, and whatever else your heart desires & cook it at 400 degrees until the pitas are crispy and the cheese is melted.
In other news, the seedlings have started to grow!
We've got them set up with a light at night as well because it has been to cold to even keep them out on our screen porch, and it has been cloudy for two weeks straight!
They are getting a little bit 'leggy' but I'm hoping keeping the light on at night will help them from getting too tall.
Keep your fingers crossed that it will get warmer here soon!
