This simple and delicious homemade pizza quickly became one of my standbys after I first tried (and loved!) it last spring. Somewhere I have a great picture from the last time I made this dish…but of course now that I’ve actually gotten around to writing the blog, I can’t find the pic anywhere. *sigh*
Trust me, if you like Greek salad, you will love this!
By the way, in case you didn’t notice the new widget over to the right, I am now doing quite a bit of freelance writing! Check out a few of my articles by clicking on the links. These are from only one of my four client sites. I am still trying to figure out if I can set up RSS feeds from the othe sites. If RSS isn’t available, I’ll add a page to the website and add hard links as the articles are published.
- Pizza dough – either buy the rolled kind near the biscuits in the grocery store, the package kind you have to mix up, or the prepmade ones like Boboli…makes no difference.
- 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cucumber, diced
- 1/2 medium or large tomato, diced
- 3 slices of a medium red onion, diced
- 10-12 big Calamata olives (don’t use the cheap pre-sliced canned ones…go for the big flavor!), sliced
- handful or two of feta cheese
- 1/4 cup (or to taste) of Kraft Greek salad dressing
- 8-10 baby spinach leaves, steam wilted and chopped (optional)
- Black pepper to taste
- Pizza sauce (optional)
- Throw the tomato, cucumber, onion, olives and spinach leaves into mixing bowl. Add enough Greek salad dressing to lightly coat everything. Add feta cheese and stir together. Set aside in refrigerator.
- Make pizza crust according to directions
- If pizza just isn’t pizza to you unless it has tomato pizza sauce on it, spread a layer of the stuff over the crust. Personally I like it better without. Top with the mozzarella cheese and bake according to instruction on pizza crust package.
- 3-4 minutes before the crust is done, pull pan out of oven and spread the topping in the bowl over the melting cheese. Cook the additional time and remove from oven.
- Sprinkle with black pepper to taste and enjoy.
Great for football game day fare!
