Greek Salad Pita Pizza


Pita pizza's are always convenient, fun and easy to make as individual pizzas for everyone.  Each pita's warm crispy crust is complimented with the crisp icy-cold Greek salad that sits on top.  So satisfying and delicious, the Greek salad pita pizzas are amazingly light, fresh tasting, and savory with every bite!  So good, you'll want to make these pita pizzas all spring and summer long.

My sister Liz is obsessed with eating Greek salads all the time, and it's because she LOVES feta cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers.  So since she adores the ease of making pita pizzas, she decided to make her version of this Greek salad pita pizza!

A Greek salad is simply made by combining sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onions, romaine lettuce and feta cheese, tossed in a red wine vinaigrette dressing.

First, she prepares the Greek salad the way she likes it, making a simple vinaigrette with dried oregano, extra virgin olive oil, a touch of yellow mustard, garlic powder, salt, pepper and red wine vinegar.  Then chills it for a few minutes before serving.


Next, she places some pita breads into the oven for a few minutes, allowing enough time to toast them to a crisp. You can also toast pitas by grilling the breads on an outside grill, perfect during the summertime.


To assemble, simply add the chilled Greek salad on top of the still-hot pita, and serve!
It's as easy as that!  Best of all, you can pile on the salad as much as you like without any guilt. Simply cut into 4 equal parts and enjoy this satisfying, easy to make pizza.

I made these for my girls the other day for lunch, and the outcome was amazing; they loved it!

Greek salad pita pizzas are definitely a healthy version of serving pizzas to friends and family.  It is as much fun to make, as it is to eat!   ENJOY!

Greek Salad Pita Pizza

  • 1 heart of Romaine lettuce - chopped, rinsed, spin excess water
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes - cut in halves
  • 2 small cucumbers - thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 package, 6 Pita Breads
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese

In a medium size salad bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, olive oil, yellow mustard, dried oregano and garlic powder.  Pour vinaigrette into the salad mixture and toss to combine. Taste,
and add salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.  Place into the fridge to chill for a few minutes.

In the meantime, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place the pita breads onto a baking sheet and bake pitas in oven for about 6 to 10 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

Remove and transfer pitas to a serving platter or to individual dinner plates.  Add some Greek salad on top, about 1 cup, or add as much as you like.
Sprinkle with Feta cheese on top, and serve.  You may use a pizza cutter to cut each pita into 4 slices, or serve them with a knife and fork.

Serves 6

    1. Thank you Cali! It's so nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by! My sister Liz is the one who came up with this idea and you're so right - this can be good lunch for school or work. I would bring the salad in a container then assemble the salad over the pita just before you eat it. This way the pita will stay crisp and not turn soggy.
