I loved this recipe! But, my husband is diabetic, and I substituted the pita bread with carb smart flour tortillas. They are only 6g of carbohydrates. I lightly toasted them in the oven, took them out and followed the recipe, and then put them back into the oven just long enough to melt the cheese. I then had a thin crusted pizza!

Great and easy! I even added a little taco meat. Will make again.

I tried this when I was looking for healthy recipes for my family. It has become a regular in my house. It's quick, tasty and filling. I did switch to regular Rotel, because the lime and Cilantro was too spicy for me. But overall, since I tried it I have made it at least a dozen times, experimented a little bit, and really enjoyed it!

It was good, but way too spicy. Next time I make it, I plan on using fresh tomato and onion instead of Rotel.

This was absolutely one of the easiest recipes I have ever made! Literally, 15 minutes from start to eating. I loved the pita bread instead of tortillas or pizza crust because they held the ingredients really well and was so easy! The blend of flavors was excellent and it had a lot of kick. Actually the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that it was a little too spicy for my 5 year old. I am going to keep the ingredients on hand for busy weeknights.
