Mediterranean Chicken Pita Pizzas are a fun, simple, and healthy recipe that the whole family can make and enjoy.
This recipe kind of came on a whim one night with leftover deliciously grilled lemon chicken. I had some hummus to use up, as well as some pitas calling my name. Pita Pizzas were a huge hit! This is a fun one because my kids love hummus, and they love pizza. They also loved having their own personal sized pita pizza where they could choose their own toppings. Mine included: hummus, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, arugula, fresh mint, chicken, and fresh parsley. My kids pizzas looked a little different (like only hummus, chicken and cheese). Whatever. I still call it a success!
You can easily use pre-cooked chicken for this recipe as a super quick meal, or throw on some extra chicken breasts if you’re grilling any other time during the week. This also makes a fabulous lunch idea! Easily portable and does not need to be heated to enjoy.
Serve this along side my Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette!
