Jaffa Veggie Pita Pizzas

This is the recreation of a favorite menu item from Inyo’s favorite mediterranean place called Jaffa Cafe here in San Luis Obispo. You can find us there most often on Sunday afternoons after church, chatting with the awesome staff and delighting ourselves in their delicious falafels, gyros, and veggie pita pizzas. If you’re lucky, they will give you free baklava when you’re done with your meal.

Anyways, their veggie pita pizzas are great, so I decided to try making them on my own. This recipe was so easy and barely any clean up! I think they turned out pretty healthy and really tasty! In the wise words of Maleesa: Jaffa, watch out.

Full recipe is below.

Veggie Pita Pizzas

Ingredients (All from Trader Joe’s):

4 zucchinis

4 yellow squash

1 red onion

1-2 heirloom tomatoes

1 package of middle eastern flatbreads

1 tub of classic hummus

1 tub crumbled feta cheese


Roast veggies. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line two 13×9 pans with foil. Cut the red onion, zucchinis, and yellow squash in 3/4 inch squares and place in bowl. Toss them in some olive oil and 2 T of balsamic vinegar. Season with montreal steak seasoning. Divide contents of bowl evenly between the two pans. Roast for a total of 40 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes.

Lay out pitas. Spread about 1/4 cup of hummus on each. Cover generously with roasted veggies. Top with chopped fresh tomatoes. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese. Throw under the broiler for like 5 minutes to crisp and warm the flatbreads.

Done. Enjoy.
