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 Dinner 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. He 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.
Making an open-faced Greek pita is really easy, and can be customized for each person. These meals are perfect when we have our Dinner Club group over. We have a few allergies and dietary restrictions, so it works when we can each make our own. We just make sure to keep the ingredients separated so there isn’t any cross-contamination. Also, there are 8 kids so it gives them options, too.
Step by Step
Prepare your toppings, such as spinach leaves, feta cheese, olives, tomatoes, and red onion. It helps to have everything cut into small pieces. We cut the grape tomatoes and olive in half. The spinach was torn. The red onion was sliced and the feta was already crumbled.
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!
