Pita Melts

Feeling creative at lunch? Check this out! These pita melts are kind of like pizza but with hummus instead of tomato sauce and pita instead of dough and sliced chicken or turkey instead of pepperoni! Ok, I guess it really isn't like pizza... But you eat it like pizza. And it sure is tasty. And easy. And a nice alternative to a turkey sandwich for lunch! 

Pita Melt
Makes 1 serving
Total Time: 10 minutes

1 whole wheat pita
2 Tbsp hummus
3-4 slices turkey or chicken lunch meat
1 roma tomato
1/2 Tbsp red onion (chopped)
1/4 cup shredded white cheese (whatever you like)

1. Chop roma tomato and onion.
2. Spread hummus on pita. Add turkey or chicken, chopped tomato and onion, and shredded cheese.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 5-7 minutes to melt the cheese. Slice and enjoy!

Start off with a pita and hummus! I've been spreading hummus on my sandwiches lately instead of mayo. Much healthier and a little different!

Put on a layer of your favorite sliced turkey or chicken.

Next - tomato and onions! You could switch the veggies up and use whatever you have. I feel like black olives and green bell peppers would be nice too!

Top with your favorite white shredded cheese!

Bake for 5-7 minutes just to melt the cheese. Slice and eat like pizza! The hummus and cheese make the melt so moist and warming everything up really makes it seem like not your typical lunch. And these are ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already! So instead of making your normal sandwich for lunch, heat this baby up!


  1. Yum thus sounds so delicious and like a heather alternative to a mayo filled sandwich!

    1. Exactly! And you don't miss the mayo filled sandwich at all because the melt is still so moist from the hummus and cheese!
