Greek Pizza

We love making homemade pizza. My husband Josh’s favorite pizza is his famous BBQ chicken deluxe pizza. He also likes sausage and pepperoni. He would eat the same three pizzas for the rest of his life, if I let him. I like to mix things up though. Pizza night shouldn’t be boring. A few of my favorites include our sweet potato kale pizza and our peach basil pizza. Josh always ends up loving my pizza creations, he just doesn’t like to admit it. 

I am always looking for new pizza ideas. When I saw Riley’s (My Daily Morsel) recipe for Greek Pizza, I told Josh it was a pizza night. I couldn’t wait to try this pizza. I love Greek salad and this pizza has all of the same fixin’s but in pizza form.

To make the pizza, you will need the following ingredients: pizza dough, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, red onion, salt, pepper, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce. 

Preheat the oven to 500°F. If your oven can go even higher than that, go for it and set it to its maximum temperature.

While the oven is preheating, lightly flour your work surface and lay down the pizza dough.

Roll the dough out into a thin circle, about 15 inches in diameter.

Carefully transfer the dough to a large baking sheet or pizza stone.

Serve and enjoy! 

We loved this pizza. And when I say we, I mean we. Josh may love his meat pizzas, but he also loved this veggie Greek pizza. It is loaded with flavor. The toppings are fresh and the tzatziki sauce is a genius addition. We used our favorite tzatziki sauce recipe. It is super simple to make and goes so well with the Greek pizza. 

Thanks Riley for sharing your Greek Pizza recipe. We loved it and can’t wait to make it again. Make sure you visit My Daily Morsel for more tasty recipes.

Made the Greek pizza May 2/13. Loved the olive oil instead of tomato sauce. The tzatziki is fabulous. Easy, easy recipe for the pizza. Thanks for sharing.

Mmm I wish my hubby ate Feta cheese. I’ll have to make this half without it :) OR, just more for me! :)

Hubs and I recently discovered the world of Greek food and are loving it. I might need to attempt this to see if he’s impressed. haha… Thanks for the recipe!

I love Greek salad, but I just cannot imagine a pizza with cucumbers on it. I will have to give it a try just to see. It could be like dipping your bread in the salad and be wonderful. Thanks for the idea.
