Easy No-Cook Pita Pizzas
I partnered with Kalona Supernatural on this recipe because I love the flavor of their whole milk yogurt and that they use organic milk from grass-fed cows raised on sustainable family farms. And using yogurt in homemade hummus, instead of tahini, is a simple way to ensure that it’s that it’s super creamy.
Ingredients in Greek Pita Pizzas
To make these easy pita bread pizzas, you’ll need:
- Kalona whole milk plain yogurt
- Whole wheat pita bread (I like to use mini ones)
- assorted toppings such as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and crumbled goat cheese
Homemade Hummus without Tahini
I love to use yogurt in hummus for many reasons including it’s less expensive than tahini, it makes a hummus that’s very creamy, and it’s free from a food (sesame), which some kids may be allergic too. I also love that it adds beneficial probiotics to the hummus, which can help the kids stay healthy!
How to Make Greek Pita Pizzas Step-by-Step Process
Here’s a look at the steps involved in making this recipe.
- Gather your ingredients including some fun toppings.
- Place the hummus ingredients into a blender.
- Blend smooth.
- Spread the hummus on the toasted pitas and add toppings as you like.
TIP: You can make this whole healthy kids meal with the kids and let them pick and add their own toppings!
What kind of toppings are best for these pita pizzas?
I like to go sort of Greek to complement the hummus and add tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and crumbled goat cheese, but it’s really up to you. You could add black or Greek olives, shredded cheddar, or roasted veggies.
TIP: You can do just the hummus on the pita and serve the veggies alongside for kids who prefer their foods not to be too mixed together.
Make-Ahead Tips for Healthy Pita Pizzas
You can make the hummus ahead of time and store it in the fridge for 3-5 days. Then you can quickly assemble the pizzas at meal time. You could also put the toppings into a pita round, cut in half, for a simple pita bread sandwich in a packed lunch!
Tips for Making the Best Greek Pita Pizzas
- Taste the hummus after blending and adjust the level of salt if desired.
- Omit the salt if making for a baby.
- Serve the hummus and toasted pita side by side if preferred.
- The the kids top their own pita breads so they can choose which toppings to add.
