Ingredients for Greek Pizza
- Pita bread –pita bread is the base for your Greek pizza. Opt for whole wheat pita bread for added nutritional value, or you can use naan bread as an alternative.
- Red onion – slice a small red onion into thin pieces. The tangy and slightly sweet flavor of red onion adds a delightful taste to the pizza.
- Cocktail or Campari tomatoes – halve these medium-sized, meaty tomatoes to add a burst of freshness and tanginess to your Greek pizza. You can also quarter them if you prefer smaller pieces.
- Feta cheese – crumble the feta cheese to sprinkle over the pizza. This salty and crumbly cheese is a classic ingredient on Greek pizza. You can use low-fat feta if preferred.
- Extra virgin olive oil – drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the pizza for added richness and depth of flavor. Olive oil is a staple in Mediterranean cooking and enhances the taste of the ingredients.
- Fresh oregano – add a sprinkle of fresh (or dried) oregano leaves to infuse the pizza with a delicious aroma and herbaceous flavor. Oregano is a common herb used in Greek cuisine and complements the other ingredients beautifully. You can use basil as an alternative.
