  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins


1 lb Ground American lamb

6 Pita rounds

1 tbsp Olive oil

1 1/2 cup Hummus

1 Cucumber, seeded & finely chopped

1/2 Red onion, sliced thin

1 cup Cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup Kalamata olives, halved

1/2 cup Banana peppers, deli sliced

1/2 cup Feta, crumbled

1 Bottle tzatziki salad dressing

2 tsp Oregano

4 Rosemary

1-2 tbsp Garlic powder

1 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper


Preheat your grill to medium high (about 400 degrees).

1Brush each side of the pita with olive oil then lightly season with sea salt and garlic powder. Place directly on grill grates. Grill for 1-2 minutes. Flip then grill another 2-3 minutes. Set aside.

2Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the ground lamb and a pinch of salt. Cook until lamb is no longer pink, breaking it into pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Drain and rinse off any excess grease.

3Add garlic powder, rosemary, oregano and pepper to lamb. Sauté until fragrant. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

4Serve pitas warm with toppings on the side.

5Layer pita, hummus and ground lamb then top each pizza with cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, olives, banana peppers and feta. Drizzle tzatziki dressing on top and enjoy!
