Greek Pitas

I think it is no secret I am obsessed with Greek Food.  I could eat that and Mexican food every single day and never tire of it.  I had my sister over for lunch last week and whipped up these tasty Greek Pitas.  This meal is super easy and would be perfect for a dinner party as well.  You could even add some chicken, beef,  or lamb to make the meal hearty for all your male/carnivore diners.    All you need to do is chop up all the ingredients, place on a pretty platter and then let people assemble their own pitas.


I used Naan Bread as our pita base and it worked amazing.  Just pop it in the oven for about 5 minutes til it gets heated and extra soft then layer on ingredients.   We originally made these with Tzatziki sauce as the base but then also made a batch with hummus as well and both were fabulous.  So you choose your layering sauce!  Eat as a pizza or fold and eat like a Gyro!  Bon Appetit!

Delish. I love naan bread, too. Do you have a gas stove? I turn one of my burners on very low heat, then lay the naan on top of it for about a minute. Flip with tongs, repeat on the other side. Gives it an awesome grilled flavor. Just keep an eye on it or it will burn.
