Going Greek!

Last month we attend the Panegyri Greek festival here in Cincinnati and had some awesome Greek food...tasty kabobs, an antipasto platter with yummy cheese and olives (none for me though), and a really tasty "Greek pizza".

So a few weekends ago we decided to recreate this delicious dish. Now I would say that I'm more of a traditional toppings on my pizza type of know - pepperoni, onion, mushrooms, those are my favorites. But I enjoyed the Greek pizza from the festival so much, I found myself buying the ingredients at the store and below is our homemade version of the pizza:
We went with the store bought Boboli ultra thin crust. Instead of a red sauce, we mixed a few tablespoons of olive oil, fresh minced garlic, basil, salt and pepper to bast over the dough. Topped that with crumbled feta cheese, spinach leaves, thin sliced red onion, and really thinly sliced Roma tomatoes. A little sprinkling of mozzarella and below is the pizza before baking:
Here is the after picture...baked it on a pizza stone and turned out to be one of that best pizza's we've ever made.
Making the whole thing even better, was enjoying the afternoon on the back patio relaxing!!
