Daily Dinner Ideas #3

I absolutely love Greek salads and Feta cheese is one of my favorites. So of course I love this pizza. The flavors are so wonderfully mingled and it can be prepared in about 30 minutes.What a fab way to end a busy weeknight.

Greek Pita Pizza

Packaged hummus is available in many flavor varieties; red pepper hummus works very well here.

4 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil

4 (8 inch) pita breads

2 Tbs. red wine vinegar

Salt and Pepper

1 small red onion

1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped

1/2 cup hummus (see note above)

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 Tbs. of oil all over top and bottom of pita breads. Transfer to baking sheets and bake until golden brown.

Meanwhile, combine remaining oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste in bowl. Toss onions, olives and 2 Tbs. vinaigrette together in separate bowl.

Spread 2 Tbs. hummus on each toasted pita round. Sprinkle cheeses evenly over hummus, then top with onion mixture. Bake until onions soften and cheese is melted. About 6-8 minutes.

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