weeknight dinner

Well, hello there! Georgia from The Comfort of Cooking here to bring you a fresh, delicious weeknight-friendly spin on traditional pizzas with pita bread, tomatoes, olives and parsley. Pile those all on top of a quick ‘n easy homemade meat sauce, feta and mozzarella, and dinner is served! Doesn’t feta just make it bettah?

Anyway, onto the good stuff…

In my house, we’re always looking for light and easy recipes to carry us throughout the week. The criteria? Big flavor, but no fuss and no big messes to clean up. Enter these Greek Pita Pizzas from BHG’s archive of delicious recipes!

These pita pizzas were fabulous – packed with fresh Mediterranean flavors, simple to make, and so darn pretty to look at. They were just the easy, healthy dose of color and flavor we’ve been needing to add to our dinnertime routine!

What I love about this recipe is how adaptable it is, too! For the sauce, you can use whatever ground meat you like (including lamb, turkey, chicken, or even Italian sausage), or just omit it altogether for veggie-friendly pizzas. And, if you’re really pressed for time, just use a store bought pizza sauce as your base.

If you ask me, though, the sauce really makes these scrumptious pizzas worthwhile! Don’t even get me started on the aroma as it bubbles on the stovetop. Pure comfort.

For weeknights that call for fast, fresh and easy, a batch of Greek Pita Pizzas is the perfect choice. I can’t wait to have friends over for dinner on our deck this spring, where I’ll serve up these pizzas! With a big green salad and a glass of chilled white wine, these would make such an ideal al fresco meal. Even if you’re dining indoors, these colorful and delicious pizzas can’t help giving you that sunshine-y feeling!

Grab yourself some pitas, fresh veggies, cheese and olives, and give these pita pizzas a go this weekend. I know you’ll absolutely love them – we sure did!
