With fresh Mediterranean flavors, this dish is like a summer vacation for your taste buds.

Serves 2

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus extra for brushing
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 cup pitted and chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a medium bowl, blend together the flour, sugar and salt.  In a small bowl or mixing cup, blend together the water and oil. Drizzle the oil/water mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and quickly bring the mixture together to form a shaggy dough.  Turn dough onto lightly floured work surface.  Flour hands and begin to knead the dough.  Knead until dough turns from shaggy to a smooth, uniform mound, 3 to 5 minutes.

Form dough into a ball and then rub oil all around.  Place in a bowl or on your counter top and cover with plastic wrap to ensure dough does not dry out.  Allow dough to rest for 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Cut the dough ball in half and keep other half covered while working with first.  Roll dough out to a thickness of 1/8 inch but no more than 1/4 inch. Brush top with olive oil and season with salt.

When grill is hot, place dough, oil side down, onto grill.  Allow grill marks to form and dough to bubble slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.  While first side is cooking, brush oil on second side.  Flip dough and cook on second side.

Remove dough from grill and place on a cutting board.  While dough is still hot, spread hummus on and then top with remaining toppings.  Finish by drizzling lightly with lemon olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.
