This weekend was great. I was able to get some work done but also had some time to relax with my family. I got to try a new restaurant in Philadelphia called Standard Tap  which was featured on one of my all time favorite shows diners drive-ins and dives. The atmosphere and food were great, perfect for a Friday night.

The sun came out in Delaware this weekend as did everyone else from their hibernation stupor.  It was so nice being able to work outside and catch up with neighbors.

Last week I made these whole wheat pita pizzas and have been addicted ever since. I say addicted because I had this for dinner 3 nights in a row last week.

Its that good!

The whole wheat pita pizzas were created on my quest to find a quicker and healthier version of my homemade whole wheat pizza dough  My whole wheat pizza dough although delicious can be a lot of work especially when you are short on time. I would have never thought a pita would provide a crust crispy enough for pizza until I gave it a try.

Spend a couple extra minutes and make your own pizza sauce or take the shortcut and use jared marinara like I did.

Enjoy! ♥
