Greek Pizza


This Greek pizza recipe is delicious and simple. This Greek-style pizza is great as a recipe for vegetable pizza.

Greek-style pizza traditionally includes toppings such as feta, olives and other authentic Greek ingredients. But this pizza is also known for having a thick, chewy crust, baked in a pan (similar to a Chicago deep dish pizza).

A lot of people also use Phyllo dough for the crust. You can use whatever crust you like and top with typical Greek toppings like in the recipe below.


Ingredients

  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil from the sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup pitted black olives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix olive oil, garlic and 1/2 cup feta in a small bowl.

Place pizza crust on a cookie sheet; spread olive oil/garlic/cheese mixture over pizza, then top with tomatoes, olives and oregano. Bake until heated through and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Toss spinach and onion with the 1 Tb. sun-dried tomato oil. Top warm pizza with spinach mixture and Mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese melts, about 2 minutes longer.

Enjoy this delectable pizza!
