Total Time 30 min.


  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 green olives, (see Tips for Two), pitted and chopped
  • 2 6-inch whole-wheat pita breads
  • 2 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese, or more to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 425°F.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, thyme, pepper and sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very soft, about 8 minutes. Add olives and remove from the heat.

Step 3

Place pitas on a baking sheet. Divide the onion mixture between the pitas and spread to the edges; sprinkle with feta. Bake until the cheese is golden, about 10 minutes.
