Tantalizing Greek Style Pita Pizza

· · ·

A couple weekends ago we had a house full of guests. We shipped our kiddos off to the grandparents for the weekend, while our friends flew in from Chicago and a couple “couples” friends from town all crammed into our home in Utah. It was six couples under one roof and we had a RIOT!  

The house was full and it felt so good to entertain and to have friends over!  We stayed up late playing games, laughed, talked and we ATE, a lot. 

My dear friend, Renee’s husband is a classically trained chef and was an apprentice to the Rick Bayless of Frontera Grill fame. So the man can cook! 

I was more than willing to hand over the reigns of my kitchen to his very capable hands. 

Seriously – the food was so good, almost as good as the company. 

One of the things that he made that I am still craving like crazy is his hummus. I am very fickle when it comes to hummus, I’ll have it at some places and I can’t get enough and at other establishments or some store bought brands I can’t stand. Hummus is very hit or miss for me and Erik’s was the best hummus I have ever had! 

Don’t worry I will be sharing the recipe shortly – but I did have to beg and barter to get it! 

In the meantime grab your favorite store bought brand of hummus and enjoy this tantalizing {trying to use new words besides delicious} greek style pita pizza – they are the perfect throw together dinner your family will love!

To make the crust grab a bag of your favorite whole wheat pitas and use a little high-quality EVOO to smooth over the “crust” I also added a little salt and pepper. You can use a spoon or a pastry brush to smooth the oil onto the pita – then heat them in the oven at 425 for 8-10 minutes.

While your pizza crusts are baking cut up some of your favorite greek toppings – I love kalamata olives, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and red onions and don’t forget the feta! Grilled chicken is also a nice touch if you are wanted to add a bit more protein.

Once the pizza crusts are done pull them out of the oven and load them up with the goods! Start with a generous smear of hummus {Erik’s recipe – coming soon!} then top with olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and feta cheese.
