Greek Pita Pizzas

My dad used to work for a company that had its own cafeteria. One of his favorite meals was the pita pizzas they would make. Take a small pita, and top it with any and all the toppings you'd like. He then brought this home to us. It was so much fun! You could cut up your favorite veggies, meats and add as much cheese as you want!

This recipe brought that memory back to me. A bit different though with hummus instead of sauce, feta instead of mozzarella. The original recipe recommends tzatziki sauce, but we didn't use it on ours! A simple way to use up extra ingredients (whether you go Greek or not!)

Greek Pita Pizzas-adapted from Annie's Eats
Total Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 4, 8-inch, pitas
  • 1 tablespoon red vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of each pita with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons olive oil, red vinegar, salt, pepper and oregano. Whisk to blend. Then stir in onion, olives and tomato and toss to coat.

Top each pita with about 2 tablespoons hummus, quarter of the mozzarella cheese, quarter of the vegetable mixture, and finally a quarter of the feta cheese. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until vegetables are tender and cheese is melted.
