Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat (or foil or parchment paper). Place pita breads on prepared pan. Prepare Sriracha Peanut Sauce by combining ingredients in a small bowl. Spread sauce on pitas, leaving a small border. Layer the shredded cheese, onion and carrots on the sauce.
Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted, and the edges of the pita are slightly crunchy. Garnish with cilantro leaves and chopped peanuts.
Optional: drizzle with additional sriracha sauce and squeeze of lime juice.
