Creamy Garlic and Bacon Pitas

6 slices bacon, halved
2 cloves garlic
1 tbs slivered almonds, toasted
2 oz Neufchatel or light cream cheese
2 tbs plain yogurt
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Pita bread, split
6 large strawberries, sliced
Boston or leaf lettuce

Place bacon on microwave-safe rack; cover with paper towel and microwave at HIGH 5 to 6 minutes. Roll up half of the slices to make 6 bacon curls. Crumble remaining bacon; reserve.

Meanwhile, place garlic and almonds in blender or processor; cover and blend until finely chopped. Add cheese, yogurt and sauce; cover and blend until fairly smooth. Stir in reserved bacon. Spread each Pita circle with bacon mixture. Place strawberries around outer edge; arrange lettuce in center and top with bacon curls. Cut into quarters to serve.
