Spring Greens Pita Pizza

I debated whether pita pizza was worthy of a post, but it is after all one of my favorites (especially on a lazy night), and this version was just too tasty to pass up.  Pita pizzas are quick and easy, really hearty, and a great way to use up what's in your fridge.  For me that meant Mom's sauce, goat cheese, greens, and (much to Derek's dismay) kalamata olives.  Mmmmm...

-Pitas (white, whole wheat, sesame, whatever you got)
-1/4 c Onion, chopped
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-Spring greens, chopped (I used arugula, spinach, and fresh basil)
-Goat cheese
-Kalamata Olives, pitted and chopped
-Parmesan cheese

-->  Put the pita in the toaster oven (or oven) at 400 degrees.  While it crisps, saute onions and garlic in oil.  Add greens.  Turn off heat and let wilt.  Take pita out, and spread sauce and goat cheese on it.  Toast again for a few minutes.  Top pita with sauted greens and onions, then with green olives, and sprinkle with parmesan.  Toast again until cheese is melted.  Mmmm... (again).
