Greek Pita Pizzas
These mini pizzas were adapted from a wonderful recipe in Gourmet magazine (RIP). If your kids aren’t fond of feta, you can make their pizzas with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese - and even add pepperoni. For a thinner “crust”, slice the pita breads in half before making the pizzas.
- 6 oz. crumbled feta cheese
- 4 pita pockets whole wheat or white (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
- 3 plum or Roma tomatoes diced, or use 15 oz. canned diced tomatoes, drained
- 2 tsp. dried oregano or use 1 - 2 Tbsp. fresh oregano or basil
- 4 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
- Preheat the broiler and put the rack 4 – 6 inches from the heat source.
- Sprinkle the feta cheese evenly over the pitas.
- Top each with a quarter of the tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. oregano, and drizzle 1 tsp. oil on top.
- Broil the pizzas on a baking sheet for 5 - 8 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the pitas start to brown. (You can also cook them two at a time in the toaster oven at 450 degrees.) Serve the pizzas halved or quartered.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Crumble the cheese if necessary and refrigerate, dice the tomatoes. Scramble Flavor Booster: Use the fresh herbs, and season the pizzas with crushed red pepper flakes or black pepper. Tip: Do you struggle to control your blood pressure?
