Spiced Beef and Hummus Pita Pizza is crispy pita bread topped with a layer of your favorite hummus, spiced ground beef, diced tomatoes, fresh parsley and toasted pine nuts. This is a nice dinner option or even an appetizer at a party!

Prep Time 20 min
Cook Time 10 min
Total Time 30 min


1 Tablespoon ghee {clarified butter}
1/4 cup sweet onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef, I use 80/20
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper {optional}
1/2 teaspoon sumac
4 pita bread rounds {try whole wheat for a healthier version}
1 cup of your favorite hummus, divided {I like to use garlic or classic}
1 cup diced tomatoes, divided
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped, divided
3 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts, divided


  1. Preheat the panggangan to 350 F.
  2. In a large skillet heat the ghee {butter} over medium high heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the ground beef, salt, pepper, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne pepper and sumac and continue to sauté for 7-8 minutes, or until the beef is browned and cooked through. Set aside.
  3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and toast for two minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the skillet and set aside once toasted.
  4. Set your four pita rounds on two baking sheets. Start by spreading a thin layer of hummus on each pita followed by the cooked ground beef divided among the four pitas and continue to do the same with the diced tomatoes, fresh parsley and toasted pine nuts.
  5. Toast the pitas for 10 minutes, or until the pita becomes toasted and slightly crispy.


Try adding feta cheese to these pita pizzas.

If you can’t find ghee {I found mine at Trader Joes and you can also find it as most ethnic and Middle Eastern markets}, you can use olive oil or butter in its place.

You can use whatever hummus you like. I tend to go with garlic or classic for this recipe but feel free to mix things up!

Try adding a drizzle of plain yogurt to each pita pizza.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
