Ingredients

4 whole wheat Toufayan brand pita bread

8 oz ground lamb, organic if possible

1/2 cup diced red onion

2 cloves garlic diced (1/2 tsp reserved for the yogurt sauce)

1/2 cup fresh diced tomatoes

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp coriander

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

Other ingredients for topping pizza

4 tbsp marinara sauce

2 cups fresh baby spinach

4 tbsp fresh mint

6 tbsp crumbled feta

For the yogurt sauce

4 tbsp plain Skyr or Greek yogurt

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp of the reserved minced garlic

pinch of salt

Directions

In a medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil. Add the onions, lamb, garlic and sauté for about 4 minutes, breaking lamb up with a wooden spoon. Add tomatoes, spices and salt, continue to stir and break apart and cook an additional 5 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside.

While meat is cooking, heat pita bread in a 400 degree oven for about 5 minutes. You will want them a little firm, but not all the way toasted. Remove from oven.

Whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, garlic and salt. Set aside.

Spread 1 tablespoon tomato sauce per pita, top with 1/2 cup fresh spinach, divide meat mixture evenly amongst the four pitas.

Top with 11/2 tablespoons each of crumbled feta. Place pitas back in oven for about 4-5 minutes or until hot. Remove and top with fresh minced mint and drizzle each with some yogurt sauce.
