Prep time 5 minutes | Ready in 20 minutes | Serves 4

Without apology, this is a brazen mash-up of the world’s greatest topped flatbreads. It’s as if pizza and tostadas and manakeesh all hopped into a Tilt-a-Whirl. It’s fast, pretty and packed with veggies and flavor. It also gives hummus a happy new purpose—frankly, it was getting tired of just being a dip. It’s pizza without being too cheesy, tostada without all the work and manakeesh with more veg. Feel free to use whatever roasted vegetables you like best.

1 small head of broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets

1 red pepper, sliced

4 mushrooms, sliced

3 tablespoons extra- virgin olive oil, divided

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup hummus

4 7-inch pita breads

1 cup crumbled feta

2 green onions, minced Cilantro or mint

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put the broccoli, peppers and mushrooms on the baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Toss well, spread into an even layer and sprinkle with the salt. Roast for 7 to 9 minutes, or until tender-crisp and sizzling. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, spread the hummus evenly on the pita breads, then top with feta and green onions. Place the pitas on a new baking sheet (or transfer them to the first one once the vegetables are done). Divide vegetables across the tops of the pitas.
  3. Bake 2 to 3minutes, or until everything is piping hot. Take them out of the oven, drizzle with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with cilantro or mint.
