Pita Pizzas With Hummus and Mint

I love pita pizzas for dinner.  You can pretty much chop up everything you have left over in the fridge and throw it on a pita, bake in the oven, and voila!  A customized pizza - one that will be different every time!

This is a great recipe from Chatelaine that uses staples most people have on hand already.  I don't cook up the onions, I chop them and use them raw, and I usually use red onions.  I often swap out the veggies too.  No broccoli?  No sweet peppers?  No problem - use whatever you have.  We've thrown on cauliflower, spinach, spicy salami - you name it, we've used it, so anything goes.

Enjoy!



Pita Pizza With Hummus And Mint

1 T EVOO
1 sweet onion sliced
1 c plain hummus
4 whole wheat pitas
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
¼ tsp chili flakes
1 sweet pepper sliced
2 c broccoli florets
1 c crumbled feta
¼ c fresh mint

Preheat oven to 425.  Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment or foil.  Heat a frying pan over medium, add oil, then onion.  Cook until slightly softened, 5 minutes.  Spread hummus on pitas, right to the edges.  Top with tomato slices, then sprinkle with chili flakes.  Top with pepper slices, broccoli, and cooked onion.  Sprinkle with feta.  Bake 12-15 minutes.  Sprinkle with mint and serve.
