Greek Pizza.

It all started with the creamy feta.

Let me tell you… that cheese has ruled the last 3 months of my life. It’s single handedly responsible for draining my bank account and destroying my (non-disposable) contacts. And no, I won’t wear gloves when roasting jalapenos.

I’d rather have my skin burn off in the name of tangy dip.

This end of summer has me craving one thing: carbs. Carbs in anticipation for fall and hibernation. Carbs in anticipation of jeans and cozy sweatshirts. Carbs because I’m hungry and carbs because I just think I’m hungry. Carbs because nothing goes better with football than chips, soft pretzels and beer, which are all, well… carbs.

And now I’m about to convince you that anything can be thrown on pizza and called dinner.

Bacon frequents my pizza. Chicken does too. Sometimes chocolate and frosting and strawberries make an appearance. I can even do vegetables on top of a cheese stuffed pie, but only if they are roasted and caramely… and blanketed in more provolone than humanly allowed.

Sometime I physically ache for a taste of some traditional Greek flavors, and there was no way a salad was cutting it this past weekend. I wanted feta, spicy garlic, artichokes, briny olives and BREAD. Sounds kind of dreamy if you ask me.

With all of those flavors piled high on a crispy crust, I was sure that this completely meat-free pizza would be mine… all mine. So I was shocked when my husband took down three slices the first day and finished off the last two yesterday. That was weird. I’m now questioning his identity. But if he loved it? You will too.

Greek Pizza

makes one pizza

1 batch of your favorite pizza dough

1/2 batch of creamy feta

1 head of garlic, cloves removed and peeled

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup fresh dill

3/4 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese

1 15-ounce can of artichoke hearts, chopped

1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives

1/2 red onion, sliced

3-4 campari tomatoes, cut into wedges

1 roasted red pepper, cut into slices

Prepare your pizza dough as instructed. While dough is rising, prepare the crazy feta (or do this before hand – your preference). As I roasted the garlic for the crazy feta, I also tossed the loose garlic cloves listed above in the ingredients list in a tiny bit of olive oil and “pre-roasted” them for 15 minutes. I also took this time to squeeze out the moisture in the artichokes with a dish towel.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Once your dough is ready, roll into your desired shape and brush with olive oil. Top with a bit of fresh dish, then layer on mozzarella cheese, artichokes, olives, red onion, red peppers, tomatoes and crazy feta. Scatter the semi-roasted garlic cloves over top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cheese is golden and crust is crispy. Top with a handful of fresh dill before serving. Serve with hummus for dipping if desired.

You should totally dip this in hummus. I beg of you.

    This is such a unique recipe. Love the roasted garlic in it and the idea of eating it with hummus. Looks delicious.

    I’m pretty sure I could eat this whole pizza in one sitting and I might even add bacon to the top. But then again I can feel okay about it because I’m only getting myself ready for cold weather/hibernation mode, thank goodness for big sweaters and jackets!!

    Ooo I love the idea of putting the crazy feta on pizza! I actually just made your crazy feta over the weekend. I didn’t roast the jalapeno or garlic, but instead mixed it all together with less oil, topped it with some fresh mozzarella and baked it for 20 minutes. Yum!

    The pizza looks really good. I wish I liked feta, but I just haven’t found that in my taste buds yet. I’ve tried it a couple different times, and it was really bitter to me. The rest of the pizza I think I’d like. :-)

    i must have missed the memo of crazy feta, but i cant wait to try it. and to make this pizza. we did our “first” homemade pizza on our blog this weekend too — but it seems lame in comparison! if the weather is still yuck-o in Boston this weekend, i’m thinking this pizza will be a necessity.

    Everytime you reference crazy feta I’m like… why haven’t I tried this yet?? If the crazy feta hasn’t completely monopolized the space in your heart for Greek dips, you might want to try tzatziki! It has a really fresh creamy taste.. kinda like Greek ranch. You can buy it prepared at specialty markets or here’s an awesome recipe: http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2007/07/worlds-best-tzatziki-sauce-recipe-greek.html

    GREEK PIZZA!!!! There was a very similar pizza served at the college dining hall at my alma mater, except they added a good bit of spinach that was either sauted or wilted in a touch of hot vinegar, depending on the cook. It was AMAZINGLY good!

    I really love this recipe, found it flipping through pintrest. I do a Greek pizza that is very popular but this recipe has made me rethink a few things on how it is prepared. I think you have helped me make better pizza and I thank you for that. If you’re looking for a very quick and tastey feta recipe we make a slice up at lunch that has pepperoni on the pizza sauce a bit of mozzarella on top, topped with lots of feta and jalapeños, I can never just eat one piece!

    Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare

    Let me tell ya, I would consider myself a true pizza connoisseur, and this pizza takes the cake. One of the best pizza’s to ever grace my tongue and I made it in my very own kitchen. If you have not made this, go to the store now and get the ingredients. Life is too short to not eat this pizza often.
