4 whole grain pita breads

4 generous teaspoons tomato paste
1 red pepper—diced
½ red onion—diced
10 kalamata olives—pitted and halved
1 garlic clove—minced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4½ oz (130g) feta cheese—crumbled
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

PREHEAT the oven to 450ºF/230°C. SPREAD a generous teaspoon of tomato paste evenly over each pita bread and place on a baking tray. MIX together the red pepper, red onion, olives, garlic, olive oil, oregano and black pepper in a small bowl until combined. ARRANGE equal amounts of the mixture over each pita bread. TOP evenly with the crumbled feta cheese. BAKE for 10 minutes. SPRINKLE the parsley on top and serve.

Variations: You can use green pepper instead of red; add anchovies, tuna, shrimp, or shredded rotisserie chicken; spread hummus over the pita breads instead of tomato paste; add canned or jarred artichoke hearts or baby spinach leaves.
