Southern Mom Loves: Mediterranean Pizza Recipe

Mediterranean Pizza Recipe

Saturday, March 29, 2014

This week's pizza is full of amazing Mediterranean flavors. If you like Feta, this one is for you. And the addition of green things can help convince your brain that this is a healthy pizza. Mmmm...Convinced.

Wonderful as is, but can be made extra-Greek-y and delicious with the addition of toppings like artichoke hearts & olives. Go with what you love!

  5. Pour the mixture onto your crust and spread with your hands or the back of a spoon. Make sure to brush it over the outer edges of the crust too. (Tip: if you like super-fluffy crust, let it sit in a warm spot for about 20 minutes at this point.)
