Greek Pizza (1st lenten meal I cook)

Surprise! Two posts in one day. Wow!

For lunch we had Greek Pizza. I actually made is as prescribed except I put some black olives in it too. It was really good. The Baron was upset when I only let him have three pieces. It was a nice start to no meat. I get the feeling it will make a few rotation in the 40 days. O I just realized I forgot to put the onion it it. Ops. It was great even without it.

Greek Pizza with Spinach, Feta and Olives


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, divided
  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked Italian pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil from the sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced


  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position, and heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix mayonnaise, garlic and 1/2 cup feta in a small bowl. Place pizza crust on a cookie sheet; spread mayonnaise mixture over pizza, then top with tomatoes, olives and oregano. Bake until heated through and crisp, about 10 minutes.
  2. Toss spinach and onion with the 1 Tb. sun-dried tomato oil. Top hot pizza with spinach mixture and remaining 1/2 cup feta cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese melts, about 2 minutes longer. Cut into 6 slices and serve.


  1. This sounds awesome! I am gonna try to make it next Friday!

    I don't know if you have tried a veggie burger, but BOCA and Morning Star make some good ones. They are in the freezer aisle at our Walmart across from the frozen potatoes/veggies. I ate ones yesterday with a slice of swiss cheese, and mushrooms that were sauted in a little olive oil. You can add lettuce and tomatoes of course, but I was out of lettuce. I cooked (or heated) the frozen patty in the skillet for 10 minutes, flipping it a couple times. It was good and could be an addition your meatless meals.

  2. Also if you go to Boca's website, they have a coupon for $1.00 off
