Who says salad has to come in a bowl? Get your greens on with pizza. Toasted pita rounds are the perfect size for personal pizzas, and they pair deliciously with the Mediterranean flavors in this easy anytime recipe. Quick-pickled onions add a tangy touch.


  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pure cane sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • ¾ cup oil-free hummus
  • 4 6- to 7-inch whole wheat pita bread rounds, toasted
  • 1 10-oz. package heirloom grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 5-oz. package baby mixed salad greens
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted walnuts


  1. For pickled onions, in a small saucepan combine vinegar, sugar, and garlic. Bring to boiling. Stir in red onion. Remove from heat; let stand 20 minutes while preparing pizzas.
  2. Spread hummus over pita rounds. Top with tomatoes. In a large bowl combine lettuce and 1 Tbsp. onion pickling liquid; toss to coat. Top tomatoes with lettuce and walnuts. Drain pickled onions; top pizzas with onions (discard remaining liquid).

Hi Sarah,
You can store leftover pickled red onion in the fridge in a covered container for five to seven days.

Yuuummm! This is a great refreshing summer meal! I used the Curried Roasted Carrot Hummus for the hummus. Very good! I added in cucumber and black olives for some more veggies too. The pickled onion was a very nice finishing flavor.
