Start by placing the oven rack in the upper third position of the oven and heat the broiler on low. Brush the tops of the pitas with the extra virgin olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet. Bake the pitas under the broiler for 2 minutes on each side to toast the bread.
Spread the hummus on the pitas evenly, and top with chickpeas, olives, onion, cheese, and crushed red pepper flakes. Return pitas to the oven and broil until cheese is softened (about 5-6 minutes).
While pitas are cooking, assemble the salad. Slice the cucumbers and radishes. Add spinach, cucumbers, and radishes to a large salad bowl and coat with balsamic vinegar. Toss salad and prepare bowls to serve.
Serve pitas warm, topped with fresh chopped mint (optional). ENJOY!
