Spicy Beef Pitzas-
Make these as spicy as your crowd likes.

4 Servings | Prep 15 min | Cook 20 min
Ingredients:
* 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
* 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
* Salt and pepper
* 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
* 1 red bell pepper, chopped
* 1/2 onion, chopped
* 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped habanero chile
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1 pound ground beef
* 4 pitas

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 500°. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt and two-thirds of the garlic; season with salt and pepper.
2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining garlic, the habanero chile and cumin; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beef and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
3. On a baking sheet, top each pita with a quarter of the beef mixture and bake until crisp, about 8 minutes. Serve with the garlic yogurt.
