Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced in wedges
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and sliced 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 medium yellow or green bell peppers, seeded and sliced 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 large firm ripe tomato, cut into wedges
  • 1/3 cup Greek or kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 4 large pitas

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Heat pitas in oven until warmed through.
