Ingredients Nutrition

  • Pitas
  • 1 12 cups hummus you want about 3 tablespoons per pita bread (I prefer roasted red pepper)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Toppings
  • 1 cup sliced black olives (kalamata olives are also great, use your favorite)
  • 1 12 cups feta cheese (goat cheese is great as well)
  • 1 cup tomatoes, seeded and chopped (I used plum tomatoes)
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Finishing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Options
  • scallion, carmelized onions, sauteed onions, sauteed mushrooms, arugula, basil

Directions

  1. Pitas -- Brush with a little olive oil, salt and pepper on each pita. Lightly toast in a 400 degree oven until slightly brown.
  2. Top -- Top with hummus, then your favorite toppings. I like olives, baby spinach, tomatoes, feta, a little black pepper and some Italian seasoning. But NOTE -- you can add any of your favorite toppings.
  3. If you add onions, mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, artichokes, etc., I pan saute lightly first so they are pre-cooked before adding to the pizza. The pizzas are only cooked a few minutes so just have everything ready.
  4. Bake -- Another 5 minutes in the oven, just to heat everything up and soften the cheese.
  5. Finish -- Mix the balsamic vinegar and olive oil and just simply drizzle over the top after it comes out of the oven. Perfect finishing touch. Just cut in Pizza slices and serve. I like to use my pizza cutter and 6 slices per pita.
  6. ENJOY a very simple inexpensive quick appetizer.
