Sasha's Kitchen: Greek Pizzettes with Haloumi and Fig

We recently visited my mom and stepdad in Rochester, NY (great time of year to go somewhere that cold, I know).  I always enjoy cooking with my mom when we visit each other, and this trip was no exception.  We made a couple of great new recipes together, including this pizzette recipe, and plenty of dumplings and a chocolate swirl cheesecake.  My mom shared this great pizzette recipe for little Greek pizzas made on pitas.  They were delicious and make a great appetizer or main course.

Mom's Greek Pizzettes (makes 4)
4 pocketless pitas
juice of one lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup fig jam
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 1/2 lbs haloumi cheese, thinly sliced
8 dried figs, chopped
2 cups baby arugula

Preheat the oven to 350.  Brush olive oil on both sides of the pocketless pitas.  Toast in the oven for about ten minutes until the pitas are lightly browned.  Spread the fig jam on the pitas on one side.  We used a delicious onion-fig jam from Wegmans, the best grocery store on the planet. Top each pizzette with the haloumi cheese and broil for about 3-5 minutes just briefly to melt the halumi.  Take the rest of the olive oil and mix with the lemon juice, oregano and arugula.  Top the pizzettes with the arugula and chopped figs and serve.  Yum!

  1. Earlier today a friend was talking to me about making a pizza with figs on it. Great minds think alike!
