Well, the past few weeks have been so hectic and I haven’t had the time to make anything super yummy or creative. It’s pretty much been pasta or take out every night. But I finally got the chance to experiment with these delicious (and quick!) pita pizzas yesterday. Now, I went out on a limb here as this is not your traditional pizza. I made these personal pita pizzas (how’s that for alliteration?) with hummus, sautéed veggies and feta cheese. This post is part of Our Growing Edge, a monthly food blogging event that encourages food bloggers to try new things! Hope you enjoy this experiment!
Dietary Info: Dairy-Free Option
Yields: One personal pizza
Time: 20 minutes
•1 flatbread pita
•1/2 cup Hummus
•3/4 cup chopped vegetables of your choice (I did red pepper, onion and asparagus)
•1/4 cup feta cheese*
•1 clove of garlic, minced
•1 tablespoon olive oil
•Chopped cilantro, for garnish
•Salt and pepper for sprinkling
*For a vegan option, omit cheese or use a dairy-free alternative.
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush flatbread pita with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 5-7 minutes.
2. While pita is baking, sauté garlic and vegetables in a small skillet.
3. Remove pita from oven and smother with hummus. Next, top with veggies and feta.
4. Place your hummus pizza back in the oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes (or until pita is golden brown), allowing the feta to melt a bit. Let cool and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!
