What You'll Need For Greek Pita Pizzas
The ingredients for these Greek Pita Pizzas include a combination of fresh vegetables and a handful of store-bought helpers to make the perfect veggie pizza.
The Crust - mini pita breads are the base for these pizzas. They are the perfect size and thickness to serve as a pizza crust with Greek flair.
The Sauce - keeping with the Greek theme, the "sauce" for these pizzas is store-bought hummus. Sure, you can make your own, but there are some great premade kinds in the grocery store. I opt for the plain kind, but feel free to use a flavored one!
The Toppings - this veggie pizza is topped with a simple Greek salad made with cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, olives and romaine lettuce that's tossed in an easy Greek vinaigrette. This salad would be great on it's own but is even better on this pizza!
The Cheese - what other cheese could be more perfect for these pizzas than feta? The salty, tangy cheese sends these pizzas over the top!
Assembling the Greek Pita Pizzas
Start by warming the pita breads in the oven for a couple minutes. This allows them to soften up and create the perfect base for the pizzas.
Then, assemble the Greek salad. Combine the veggies in a mixing bowl then toss with the simple Greek vinaigrette. I love making vinaigrettes in mason jars, like I did in this Fall Panzanella Salad. Simply add the ingredients to the jar, screw on the lid and give it a good shake to combine.
To assemble a pizza, take a pita bread and spread it with a good layer of hummus. Then, top with about a cup of the Greek salad mixture and as much feta cheese as your heart desires. Cut the pizza into fourths and serve!
Can They Be Made Ahead Of Time?
Once assembled, it's best to serve the Greek Pita Pizzas immediately. The longer the salad is tossed in the vinaigrette, the soggier it will become.
To save time, slice and dice all the veggies ahead of time and combine. Make the vinaigrette in a jar and keep in the refrigerator separate from the veggies until ready to serve. When you're ready to assemble the pizzas, give the vinaigrette a good shake and toss it into the veggies.
Veggie Pizza Variations
Add some other veggies - dice some red pepper, jarred artichoke hearts or a variety of other tomatoes to the salad
Choose a flavored hummus - garlic or red pepper hummus would add another pop of flavor to the pizzas!
Add some protein - I happen to love that this recipe is vegetarian, but you could absolutely add some diced chicken to the salad. You could also keep it vegetarian and still add some protein by sprinkling in some chickpeas!
