Greek Pizza


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!

  1. I haven’t watched any of the games but I’ll take that pizza. 😀

    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. 🙂

  2. 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?

  3. 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 🙂

  4. One of my biggest pregnancy cravings now is chicken Greek Salad wraps. Greek salad pizza…now I’m really in trouble! Thanks for posting this! 😀

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

  6. 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.

  7. Oh my gosh, I saw this post yesterday and knew I had to make it for dinner last night! And I’m so glad I did! This was incredible! One of the best things I’ve ever made. Thank you Maria!

  8. That looks Soooooooooooooooooo yummy!! I am trying this for dinner!!! Right now I’ll just sit here and work… starving…

  9. Ohhhhh yum, we made this pizza last night! It was so delicious, I can’t stop thinking about. We also made your homemade Tzatziki Sauce, which turned out amazing. Thank you for sharing! I will definitely add this to my list of favorite recipes! 🙂

  10. I love this recipe it looks beautiful, but as a Kentuckian it’ll eat me alive if I don’t tell you that the University of Kentucky is in Lexington, not Louisville. Very big difference as far as the cities go. That said, thanks and I can’t wait to try this!
