BUTTERNUT SQUASH PITA TOSTADAS

September 8, 2016

Using pita breads in the place of pizza crust has become one of my favorite ways to make personal pizzas in a fast, no mess way. I decided to extend the same substitutionary principle to tostadas and I can confirm pitas make just as yummy bases there too.

Sometimes I get in a rut on my mexican cuisine, so we loved this mix up of flavors. (Butternut squash! Greek yogurt sauce! Yes.)
