Greek Pita Pizzas

Greek Pita Pizzas

These simple personal pizzas make a quick and delicious weeknight meal. We tasted various flavors of packaged hummus in this recipe—red pepper hummus was the test kitchen’s favorite.

Serves 4

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 (8-inch) pita rounds
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
1 onion, red (small), sliced thin
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 cup hummus
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 cups arugula

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 475 degrees.

Brush 2 tablespoons oil over top and bottom of pita rounds. Transfer to baking sheet and bake until golden, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine remaining oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste in bowl.

Toss onion, olives, and 2 tablespoons vinaigrette together in separate bowl.

Spread 2 tablespoons hummus on each toasted pita round. Sprinkle cheeses evenly over hummus, then top with onion mixture.

Bake until onions soften and cheese is melted, 6 to 8 minutes.

Just before serving, toss arugula with remaining vinaigrette. Arrange arugula on top of pita pizzas.
