Mediterranean Pizza

Mediterranean Pizza
Yield:   1 12-inch pizza
Cook Time:   10-15 minutes
Tips:   The entire pizza can be made in advance and baked at a later date. Simply prepare the entire pizza (without baking), tightly wrap with plastic wrap, then place in the freezer. When ready to bake, simply remove from freezer and follow baking instructions (Note: A little additional baking time might be needed if pizza is placed into the oven frozen.)
Suggestion:   Delicious served with a salad.
Mediterranean Pizza (sometimes also referred to as Greek pizza) is a vegetarian pizza recipe (though one needs not be a vegetarian to enjoy it!) featuring a combination of colorful and distinctively flavored ingredients that bring to the table lively
and fabulous flavor! This Greek-style pizza entertains bite-size chunks of artichoke hearts, Kalamata (Greek) olives, thinly sliced red onion, chopped tomato and chopped green pepper with a blend of three cheeses - feta cheese, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. All these ingredients are arranged on top of a homemade pizza dough that has been generously glazed with Italian salad dressing (homemade or bottled) or any other herb style dressing (creamy or traditional). The photo above shows this pizza baked on homemade pizza dough, though if you are short on time, you can purchase pizza dough (ready-to-bake frozen dough or packaged pre-baked pizza crust) in the grocery store and simply apply the toppings and bake. Tip: Though homemade pizza dough takes a little time to allow the dough to rise, it is very easy to make and will give you that fresh, home-baked flavor!
