• Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to low broil. Wash and dry produce. • Place pitas on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Divide marinara between pitas and spread out in an even layer. Top with mozzarella. • Bake pita pizzas on middle rack until pita edges are golden brown and cheese melts, 4-5 minutes.
• Trim, peel, and cut carrots into sticks (like fries; ours were 3 inches long and 1⁄3 inch thick). • Halve, core, and thinly slice or dice apple. • In a small bowl, combine dried apricots, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips. • Cut waffle into 1-inch strips.
• Let pita pizzas cool, 2-3 minutes. • Cut pizzas into six slices each.
• To serve: Divide pita pizzas between plates and serve with carrot sticks, apple slices, trail mix, and waffle strips on the side. • To stash: Let pizzas cool completely before packing for lunch. Refrigerate everything in separate containers until ready to pack. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container.
