1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Split each pita in half horizontally into rounds. Arrange pita rounds on a baking sheet; broil 1 minute on each side or until toasted.

3. Place oil, rosemary, rind, juice, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and beans in the bowl of a mini food processor; process until mixture is smooth.

Add mushrooms; cook 4 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add kale to pan in batches, stirring until kale wilts.

5. Spread bean mixture evenly over rough side of pita halves; top evenly with kale mixture. Sprinkle with bacon, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. (recipe: MyRecipes.com)
