Only this isn’t the kind of pizza you may be thinking of. ┬áMy friend Megan and I lived together in college and while we didn’t survive on ramen noodles, we did have our share of simple meals. One of our favorites was what we called “Mexican Pizzas.” A tortilla, refried beans, shredded cheese and enchilada sauce all microwaved until the cheese is melted and gooey. Just thinking about it makes me miss those “simple” dinners of ours! (We never rolled up the tortillas, which is apparently why they weren’t burritos :) )

Well, here is the Greek version! Made with pita bread, hummus, feta cheese and any toppings you have on hand. All broiled until the cheese is hot and the pita bread crispy. Fast enough to qualify as a snack, but delicious enough to qualify as a meal!

Greek Pizza - 1 serving

  • whole grain pita bread
  • hummus
  • feta cheese
  • toppings: red peppers, olives, tomatoes, chopped onions

Layer hummus, cheese and toppings on pita bread and broil on high for about 5 minutes until bread is golden brown.

    Love this simple idea. I’m going to make this for our next “wine and appetizer” night.

    Great idea for a quick snack / meal/ appetizer! It’s actually quite versatile. And it’s awesome that you and your friend were eating stuff other than ramen in college. I can’t say the same for myself… it was a lot of ramen and chef boyardee!
