Greek Salad Grilled Pizza

Greek Salad Grilled Pizza

I have a new favorite pizza. If I could, I would change my facebook status to say that I am in a relationship with this pizza (sorry husband), that’s how much I love this pizza.

Greek Salad Grilled Pizza

It’s been in high 80′s here in sunny Florida. Spring has arrived. And while I despise the hot weather (mostly because of the humidity that comes with it here), I have been craving fruits, vegetables, and salads like it’s nobody’s business. We like to make homemade pizzas on the the weekend. I wanted some pizza, but I also wanted a big salad. I love to have salads with pizza. I love to dip the crust in dressing and I always find myself putting my salad on my pizza. So why not just make a salad pizza?! This Greek salad grilled pizza was the perfect choice. It has a nice thin, crispy crust and it’s piled high with a simple, but delicious, Greek salad! The vinaigrette is light, but adds great flavor to the salad. It just screams spring and summer!

Greek Salad Grilled Pizza

Yield: serves 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

For the pizza:

  • 1/2 lb. fresh pizza dough
  • 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups fresh arugula (or lettuce of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbs. chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat feta cheese, crumbled

For the vinaigrette:

  • 2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbs. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium heat. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough until it is about 1/4" thick. Brush half of the olive oil on one side of the dough and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the oiled side down on the heated grill/pan and grill for about 3-4 minutes until lightly browned. While the first side is face down on the grill. Brush the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with more salt and pepper on the other side. Turn the dough over and grill for an additional 3-4 minutes until browned.
  2. Remove the dough off the grill/pan. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. It will melt as the dough is still warm.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette and set aside.
  4. Spread the arugula, tomatoes, red onion, olives, and feta evenly over the pizza. Drizzle as much of the vinaigrette as you desire over the pizza.

You can also mix all of the salad ingredients in a separate bowl and mix with the dressing and then you can add it to the pizza. Whatever works best for you! If you use an outdoor grill for your pizza dough, be careful! I recommend only lighting half the grill and cooking the dough on the side that is not lit to avoid burning. You may also want to flip your dough more frequently. If you don't want to make your own dressing, you can also use your favorite Greek-style dressing.

    Si gorgeous and I too like a thin crust for more ingredients on top esp the healthy veges rather then more dough and flour. I can’t stop admiring your beautiful pics, so good they look.

    • Stephanie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 5:04 pm

      Thanks, Nava! I like more toppings than dough also.

    This does look like a tasty way to stray away from the standard italian style pizza! I prefer the method of grilling pizza over baking, it gives the crust such a nice crispiness. Your pictures look enticing with all those olives and feta-well done!

    • Stephanie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 5:05 pm

      Thanks, Tina! I’ve never grilled a pizza before! I see it happening a lot from now on!

    Grilled crust is the best. I’ve never tried it a grill pan though… I’ll be checking it out soon! :)

    I think your pizza is going to have to cheat on you with me. Sorry! :-) This really looks like the perfect healthy pizza combo and I am saving this one for future pizza adventures. I’ve needed some new topping ideas and this is perfect!

    • Stephanie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 5:10 pm

    if I had a FB status with pizza, it would be, “it’s complicated”. I love it so much can’t stop eating it. I love that this is pizza and salad in one! I wouldn’t feel so guilt about eating the whole thing. Great photos too!

    • Stephanie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 5:10 pm

      I think I could eat pizza every day too. So many possibly toppings!

    I would change my FB status to married to cheesecake if could. This pizza sounds delicious and the crust looks perfect.

    • Stephanie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 5:04 pm

      Oh man, it’s too bad I can’t be in a polygamous relationship on FB. I would be in a relationship with this pizza, cheesecake, cake in general, and cookies.

    This looks delicious – minus the olives but I love the idea. I put greens on my side of the pizza once and my husband laughed. He had no idea what he was missing.

    So this is much like my favorite “eggplant pizza” which I copied from a local Mediterranean Restaurant near me. Grill some eggplant while you are doing your dough. Skip the Mozzarella and spread Hummus on top of the dough then add the eggplant and then your salad on top. Soooo Yummy!

    • Stephanie replied: — March 21st, 2012 @ 5:21 pm

      I love the idea of adding eggplant and humms!
