Greek Pizza

This greek pizza is so full of flavor and gorgeous colored vegetables that if you close your eyes hard enough you might be able to imagine that you are eating this somewhere in the Mediterranean (wouldn't that be nice?). The "icing" on this pizza was topping it with fresh spinach half-way through cooking - what a great addition! When I make this pizza again I might add artichokes for even more flavor but this pizza is definitely tasty just the way it is.

You Will Need:
  • 2/3 cup red pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • handful of fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 ball pizza dough (white or wheat)
  • 1 1/4 cups pizza sauce
  • 1/2 bag of mozzarella cheese (12 oz bag)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Here We Go:
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
  • Roll out dough to desired thickness using your hands or a rolling pin if you have one
  • Rub pizza stone with olive oil and place dough on pizza stone or baking sheet
  • Top dough with pizza sauce, cheeses and vegetables, except fresh spinach
  • Add fresh spinach half-way through cooking (after roughly 5-6 minutes)
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on top rack, or until golden brown

Makes 8 Slices
Happy Feasting!
