1. Place chickpeas in a medium bowl and mash until broken down and crumbly. Add spinach, hummus, flour, parsley, dressing, 1?2 teaspoon salt, and 1?4 teaspoon pepper and mix until combined. Season with more salt and pepper to taste and shape into twelve 2"-wide patties.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add patties and cook until browned and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt and pepper.
3. Stir together yogurt, bruschetta, and feta until combined. To serve, fill pitas with lettuce, cucumber, and falafel patties and top with yogurt mixture.
