Pizza doesn’t have to be heavy or something you only treat yourself to on the weekend. In fact, it can be pretty darn healthy. These Greek Pita Pizzas have become a new favorite of ours for pizza night when we’re craving something a little lighter and fresher.
What Do I Need to Make the Pizzas?
- Mini pitas or regular sized pitas
- English or Persian cucumber
- Cherry tomatoes
- Red onion
- Kalamata Olives
- Feta cheese
- Dried oregano and garlic powder
- Red wine vinegar and olive oil
How to Make Greek Pita Pizzas
Making these pita pizzas is even easier than making traditional pizza. There’s no dough to roll out and no cheese to grate, making them a quick and easy option for weeknights.
- Chop the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion and kalamata olives and add them to a large mixing bowl. Pour the olive oil and red wine vinegar on top of the veggies and sprinkle on the dried oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss everything together, then set it aside.
- While you make the salad, turn your oven on to broil. Brush or drizzle the tops of the pita bread with olive oil, then sprinkle on dried oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I didn’t measure and of the spices for the pitas just sprinkle on however much you’d like. Broil the pita bread on a baking sheet until it’s golden brown and be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
- Once the pitas are golden brown and toasted, remove them from the oven and spread hummus on top of each one. Put some of the Greek salad on top of the hummus. Finish the pizzas by adding crumbled feta and an extra sprinkle of dried oregano.
I generally use traditional hummus when I make these pizzas and often buy prepared hummus at the grocery store. There’s a lot of great options for prepared hummus these days. However, if you want to make homemade hummus and/or use a flavored version feel free to do so. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus or Roasted Garlic Hummus would be delicious alternatives.
What Can I Use Instead of Hummus?
Can I Use Regular Sized Pita Bread?
Yes. If you can’t find the mini pita bread you can absolutely use the regular size. The recipe makes six pita pizzas when you use the mini size. If you’re using the regular size pita you should be able to make three.
