My Greek Pizza Recipe

I have never claimed to be a good cook but once in a while I make something good.   I think anyways.  Most everything I cook is super simple.  I wish I read more blogs with quick, tasty recipes.   So, I thought I would share this one with you.   I'm not very techinical so bear with me. 

Greek Pizza

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1 Roma Tomato
1 Cucumber
1 Red Onion
Kalamata Olives
Feta Cheese
2% Mozarella Cheese
Tzatziki Sauce (cucumber sauce)
 Balsamic Vinagrette

Step 1
Set your dough out 20 minutes before you want to use it. That way it will be easier to roll out. 
Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.  
Flour your pizza stone (or an area on your counterop and then transfer pizza to pan)
Roll out your dough. I am the world's worst dough roller.  My pizzas are always lop sided.

Step 2
Instead of using standard pizza sauce, you are going to use your Tzatziki Sauce.  I get mine at Trader Joe's and it's really good.

I use a spoon to spread mine and it works really well. Make sure you leave space near the sides for your crust area.

Step 3
Layer your mozarella over the Tzatziki sauce. I use a thin layer but it's up to you how much cheese you want to use.  Pop the pizza in the oven at 350 degrees.  I would say it takes about 20 minutes. I would just check on it to make sure it's not burning.

 Step 4,5,6
Chop your tomato, cucumber and red onion into small cubes.   This is where you would also cut up your Kalamata Olives I just wasn't in the mood for them the other night.
Toss it lightly in Balsamic Vinagrette. I love the Maple Groves Farm Fat Free. 
 add as much or as little Feta cheese as you want. I add about an 1/8 of a cup. 

Step 7
Once the pizza is done, remove it from the oven and spoon your veggies and feta over the top.  I usually let mine cool for just a few minutes and then add the topping.  That way the feta melts a little.  Mmmm.

Step 8
Drizzle Tzatziki over the top!!!

Step 9
Cut and Serve!!!

Seriously it is soooo good.   Make it and tell me how much you loved it!!!  

Adam and Aidan weren't in the mood for Greek Pizza so they just made cheese and pepperoni.  Doesn't this look good too??

Looks great! By the way, I have a recipe blog (along with my personal blog) and most of the recipes I post on there are pretty simple and take 30 minutes or less. I've been venturing out a little bit lately, but I still keep most of the recipes pretty simple. Check it out if you want: Already planning my post for Thankful Thursday tomorrow! So glad to have found your blog via SUYL Fridays :)

You make good points. I do find it interesting though that there's actually an organization that offers certification for "authentic" Neapolitan Pizza with such strict guidelines. Authentic or not, I liked Bollini's much better.Pizza Rollers
