Pita Caprese X
We take 6 fresh-baked pita wedges, top each with a thin slice of tomato, a slice of fresh buffalo mozzarella and a crispy slice of fried chicken breast tossed in hot-wing sauce. Warm it all up in the oven, then hit it with fresh basil, sliced jalapeno (on the side so you can adjust your own heat), assiago cheese and a light drizzle of ranch dressing dressing. We told you it'd be exciting. Turn it up!
