The garlic is GREAT, the tomato is tasty, and the whole thing is downright delicious!

Ingredients:
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)

Place pita on the baking sheet. Evenly spread with cheese-wedge mixture and sprinkle with shredded string cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with chicken and sprinkle with remaining 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Top with tomato, basil, and remaining 1 tsp. Parm-style topping.

Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness, at least 12" X 9". Evenly cut dough into 12 squares. Place each square in a muffin cup, and press it into the bottom and up along the sides.

Evenly distribute spinach-cheese mixture among the cups, about 3 tbsp. each, and firmly pack it in.
