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!

  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.

  4. Greek Food is definitely one of my favorites, for real! 🙂 Now I want to support my local businesses and order some from my favorite greek spot today!
