Love Pizzas and need a quick dinner on the table? This post is for you!  I always keep frozen whole wheat pita on hand for drop-in company.  These are two of my favorite Fast and Easy Greek pizzas, for those late and busy nights. I made the pesto-tomato pizza at the Del Mar Fair and it was a hit!  I especially love how fresh pesto adds great flavor to this dish. But, for last minute guests a jar of pesto will do. Feel free to substitute any cheeses, most Greek cheeses can be found in your deli section of your market. Keep an eye out for any European market in your neighborhood for a fine selection of Greek cheeses.
