If you know anything about Greek food you know pizza really isn’t a Greek thing. But who can resist some of the flavors of Greece – lamb, oregano, feta cheese, spinach and red onions on a pizza. Okay, okay – I know it’s not authentic. But believe me, if you like the flavors of Greece you will enjoy this. And pizza is always fun, right?
I think of pizza as one of those foods you whip together when you don’t really want to cook too much. That’s why I use the Boboli crust. I’m sure there are great cooks out there who feel using a Boboli for anything is an abomination. And I believe 100 percent that that’s your opinion. I beg to differ.
I know a homemade crust tastes better. However, I’m not too into bread. Yes, I had an ill-fated experience with a Brioche recipe I tried last week. But for the most part I don’t eat a lot of white flour as bread – so I just choose not to spend a lot of time cooking it. Because if I cook it – I know I’m going to want to eat it. You know how it is – if you cook it, you feel you have the “right” to eat it. Or, you somehow talk yourself into thinking it doesn’t have any calories.
On a blog called “He Cooks – She Cooks” they shared a recipe for a pizza made predominantly with carmelized onions. It sounded amazing and like something that would be just the ticket with a cup of tomato bisque for dinner.
I made a few changes and came up with a pizza reasonably close to the original version but slightly healthier and easier. A friend asked me how it turned out. I said it was so decadent it was like food porn. Bown-chicka-chicka-bown-bown!
