Greek Pizza

Greek-Pizza-Recipe-2

Tonight the madness will end. Who will win the big dance-Michigan or Louisville? I didn’t pick either team, my bracket got messed up a long time ago. I am not sure who I will cheer for, probably Michigan. I have to route for the Big Ten team. I just hope it’s an entertaining game. I’ve spent a lot of hours watching basketball over the past few weeks and I hope the final game is a good one.

I asked Josh if he wanted anything special for dinner and of course he said pizza. He said pizza is a must for championship night. I am ok with that. You can’t beat a good game of basketball and pizza. We are making our new favorite pizza-Greek Pizza. If you are a fan of Greek Salad, you will love this pizza. It has all of the same ingredients and flavors, but instead of a salad you get pizza! Kind of awesome, right?

I am totally cheating tonight and using Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough. You can make the dough from scratch, we usually do, but tonight I am keeping it easy so we can focus on the game! The pizza crust gets topped with olive oil, mozzarella cheese, and red onion. Bake until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.

When the pizza comes out of the oven sprinkle on all of the fun Greek toppings-cucumber, tomatoes, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Oh-and don’t forget the tzatziki sauce. It is amazing on this pizza-don’t skip it. If you’ve never made tzatziki sauce before, try out our favorite recipe. Don’t worry, it’s so easy and super tasty. It’s a staple in our house. You can whip it up while the pizza is in the oven.

This Greek Pizza is fresh, flavorful, and a fun way to mix up pizza night. Give it a try! It’s perfect for Meatless Monday AND championship Monday! Head on over to Tasty Kitchen for the recipe and step-by-step photos! Enjoy the pizza and the game!

    I haven’t watched any of the games but I’ll take that pizza. :D

    And Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough so doesn’t count as cheating. You have to roll it out and put on your toppings and everything. It counts as just plain awesome. :)

    This pizza looks delicious. I’ve made greek salad sandwiches and they are delicious. I love all those flavors. Would the tzatziki sauce be good spread on the dough instead of over the toppings?

    Love Greek ingredients, love pizza, love this idea of putting them together! We are homemade pizza fiends, and I’m always on the look out for twists on a classic. PS. Trader Joe’s pizza dough is not cheating. Rolling it out and baking totally counts! I say, you are using your resources :)

    Looks just delicious, Maria! I’m becoming a fan of the bake it-then top it-pizzas lately, though focaccia is my new obsession.
    Thanks!

    I love this idea! We have a brick pizza oven in our backyard, so we do pizza a lot, but I had never thought to do it Greek style! Yum!

    Gotta cheer for Michigan and the Big Ten, being a WI girl. But my bracket was messed up a long time ago as well :)
    Wish I didn’t have dinner planned already, this would make some great game time food!

    If only my GREEK boyfriend like feta cheese!! But he does love cucumbers..so maybe the two would cancel each other out. These toppings sound perfect to me!

    This looks amazing! I have a great authentic recipe for tzatziki where you strain the yogurt first – you should try it sometime! http://www.scratchymama.com/2013/03/18-greek-gyros-with-homemade-tzatziki.html

    Holy moly Maria! I love how easy it is to truly make something as wonderful as this pizza. It is screaming my name. I love Mediterranean/greek food so much, but never once thought to put it on pizza. Duh Sally! :)

    We have made something almost identical to this for many years, but instead of pizza crust, brush some olive oil on frozen pitas and pop them in the oven to crisp them up before adding the toppings and finishing them up in the oven. Individual Greek Pizzas!! They are yummy and a family favorite.

    This is a fun new pizza twist!
