Open-Faced Greek Pita

Open-Faced Greek Pita

Make an Open-Faced Greek Pita as an easy alternative to a stuffed pita. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean.

A few weeks ago, when we had friends over for Movie Club, we had a Greek-themed dinner. Justin planned this one because I really don’t care for Greek food much (I despise cucumbers!). He was so excited to make Greek Pita Sandwiches for dinner.

I tried to convince him to make homemade pitas, but he had meetings in the morning and I had an event at Tyler’s school, so we just didn’t have the time. Well, because of that, he ended up with pitas that couldn’t open to stuff the filling inside and was a bit disappointed. So, instead of having stuffed pita sandwiches, he made open-faced Greek pitas.

Although the pitas weren’t homemade, the Tzatziki sauce was! In addition to the tzatziki, we had a bunch of other Greek/Mediterranean food as options for the sandwiches. Of course, we also made a batch of hummus so I would have something to eat, too.

Step by Step

Making an open-faced Greek pita is really easy, and can be customized for each person. Prepare your toppings, such as spinach leaves, feta cheese, olives, tomatoes, and red onion.

Lay a pita on your plate and cover it with some Tzatziki sauce.

Place your desired toppings on top of the sauce. You want to spread it out, similar to making a pizza, then enjoy!

  1. That looks delicious. I have a ten-year-old sister who’s head over heels in love with cooking, and I think this is something she could do long term. Do you have any advice for her or a post where you detail your journey in the realm of cooking?

    1. That’s so awesome! I love when kids get involved in the kitchen. I don’t have one particular post, but in the menu at the top there’s a section called “kitchen tips” and there are a lot of posts in there, including a few I did called “Back to the Basics” that would probably be a good place to start.

  2. Being creative is something every food blogger I know has. Turning lemons into lemonade and we have a new recipe here. We should be having a recipe book soon, Steph, where all disappointing meals are turned to greatness like Open-Faced Greek Pita.

  3. I personally love the combination of Tzatziki and hummus on pitas. I think it’s delicious. I totally can’t wait to have warm enough days to eat this on the patio! Interesting you don’t like cucumbers.
