Simple and Easy Greek Style Pizza

Written by in Comments Off on Simple and Easy Greek Style Pizza

Even though pizza didn’t originate in Greece, that doesn’t mean that Greeks can’t enjoy it! It’s also easy to make, especially if you buy the crust. We didn’t include measurements here because everyone likes their pizza differently. Just eyeball the ingredients and it will taste delicious!

Simple and Easy Greek Style Pizza Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 Pizza dough (can buy from store)
  • Tomato sauce (you will need 1/2 – 1 cup)
  • Shredded cheese, such as kasseri, a Greek cheese, or mozzarella
  • Greek-style toppings of choice, such as chopped onion, chopped pepper, diced tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, Kalamata olives, etc (optional)
  • Oregano, to garnish (optional)

How to Prepare Greek Style Pizza:

Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit. Generously rub olive oil onto a round pizza pan. Roll out the pizza dough so that it fits perfectly in the pizza pan. Spread tomato sauce over the dough. Typically, you’ll need about 1/2 cup tomato sauce, but it all depends on how much salt you like.

Top with shredded cheese of choice. Sprinkle with any toppings you desire, or skip this step of you don’t desire toppings. Sprinkle the pizza with oregano, as well, if desired.

Place in the center of the preheated oven and bake until the cheese melts and begins to turn golden brown. This should take about 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting the pizza.

**Please Note:  Recommended cook times for Greek recipes vary depending on elevation, environmental conditions, the cookware being used, and the nature of the oven or stove. Although we have given approximations, these don’t always take into account your unique environment.

PLEASE NOTE: Greek recipes can be slightly different based on a variety of reasons, such as the region of Greece that the recipe is being made in. If you have seen this Greek recipe made another way, please send us an email to and we will evaluate your suggestion. Thanks!
