Spiced Beef and Hummus Pita Pizza
I have a major love for pita pizzas. I like to call them pitzas.
Pita pizzas are a nice way to create a fun, flavorful meal that you can get your family involved in.
Today’s Spiced Beef and Hummus Pita Pizza uses your favorite hummus flavor, spiced ground beef, freshly diced tomatoes and fresh parsley and topped with toasted pine nuts.
The nice thing is you can set all of the ingredients out and let each person create their own pitza using their favorite flavors. And you can get those kids involved in the process! Maybe ground beef isn’t your child’s favorite? They can create their pitza using the other ingredients. Or maybe you can set some of these Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas out for extra protein that they can add to the top of their pita?
The recipe for Spiced Beef and Hummus Pita Pizza was inspired by one of my favorite local Mediterranean restaurants, Aladdin’s Eatery. They have a whole section of their menu devoted to pita pizzas ranging from Greek Pitzas, Farmer’s Pitza and the Arayiss Pitza. My husband always orders one of their pitzas and after trying a few bites every time we go I knew I had to recreate it.
The flavors in this Spiced Beef and Hummus Pita Pizza work wonderful together. The hummus is creamy and light, the beef is spiced with rich, warm spices like allspice and cinnamon and the pita pizza is topped with fresh tomatoes, parsley and crunchy toasted pine nuts.
While we tend to eat these for a meal, I think they could make a really nice appetizer for a party. All you have to do is cut each pita round into small triangles and serve them on a platter.
These pita pizzas are easy put together, which is why I love them so much. You can even prepare all of the ingredients ahead of time to cut down on time. These are very customizable from using a variety of hummus flavors to a variety of fresh vegetables to feta cheese and a drizzle of plain yogurt.
