Pita Pizzas

Earlier this week I made one of our favorite things for dinner - Greek Pita Pizzas. I orginally saw the recipe on one of my favorite shows 30 Minute Meals and made it last summer in honor of the Olympics. Yes, I know this is corny. But, I did, and we've fallen in love with the meal. It combines several of our favorite greek ingredients - hummus, olive tapenade and roasted red peppers. I've included the recipe below as well as the photo. I have to apologize about the photo, it tastes way better than it looks. Also, I couldn't find pitas in the grocery store earlier this week so I substituted a pizza crust instead.

Greek Pita Pizzas

30 Minute Meals

Serves 6

6 (6-inch) pitas
1/2 pint container store bought plain hummus
1/2 cup prepared olive tapenade
3 cups shredded mozzarella

3 whole roasted red peppers, drained, chopped
1 can artichoke hearts in water, 6 hearts, drained well and chopped
1/2 cup sliced pepperoncini, chopped, optional
Handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Arrange the pitas on baking sheets or sheets. In a bowl combine the hummus and the olive tapanade. Spread the hummus on pitas and top with cheese, like pizza. Combine the chopped anchovies, peppers, artichokes, and pepperoncini. Cover the pizzas with the chopped mixture. Bake 10 to 12 minutes to melt cheese and crisp the pitas. Cut pizzas into wedges and garnish with parsley.
