Greek pizza was prepared for the first time by Greek immigrants. It is famous for its thick, chewy crust, even though its thickness is not as much as that of other types of pizzas, including Chicago and Sicilian pizza.
Have you always wanted to make Greek pizza for your friends and family? Here is an easy recipe to guide you when making one pizza, to produce eight slices.
- 1 ball of pizza dough
- 1 cup of spinach leaves
- 1 handful of black olives
- ¼ cup of feta cheese (crumbled)
- 4 tomatoes (sun-dried and packed in oil)
- ½ cup of pizza sauce (can be homemade)
- Black pepper (freshly ground)
- Cornmeal/semolina flour
- Kosher salt
- ½ red onion
- 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Prepare the pizza dough.
- Put a pizza stone in your oven and heat it to 500°F.
- Prepare your pizza sauce.
- Make the Greek pizza toppings. To do this, slice your handful of black olives and red onion, chop your spinach coarsely and then drain, and cut the tomatoes.
- Proceed to put the pizza dough on your pizza wheel, which you have dusted using the cornmeal or semolina flour.
- Assemble the Greek pizza by (thinly) spreading tomato sauce all over the pizza dough, sprinkle the cup of mozzarella cheese and then top with red onion, tomatoes, olives, spinach and the ¼ cup of feta cheese. Do not forget to sprinkle enough kosher salt to taste.
- Bake the Greek pizza, until the crust and cheese have browned well and the spinach has wilted. If you are using a pizza oven, this should take you about one minute.
- Slice and serve.
