Very good. That's a LOT of sauce for 6 pitas! But not too much! But you could spread it out over 8 pitas and it would still be plenty. There's way too much parmesan, but I didn't mind, I'm saving the leftover parmesan for other recipes. I put a layer of hummus and tahini on the pitas before putting on the tomato sauce.
