  • Preheat broiler. Line a very large baking sheet with foil; lightly coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place meatballs on the prepared pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through, turning once. Slide the foil and meatballs off the pan and onto a wire rack; cover meatballs with foil to keep warm.

  • Place pita bread halves, cut sides up, on the same baking sheet. Top pita halves with tomatoes, meatballs, and the feta cheese. Broil about 2 minutes or until heated through. Spoon yogurt mixture over pita melts. Top with the roasted red peppers.
