Greek style pizza is so tasty :) I love making it at home with my kids when I have a little extra time on my hands

For the bread: 1 package active dry yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, 3 cups all-purpose flour plus more if needed, 1 cup warm water, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/8 cup Greek olive oil, plus extra for the baking sheets, Extra all-purpose flour for your hands and the work surface

For the toppings: 1/4 cup Greek olive oil, 1 large onion, sliced, 2 large tomatoes, sliced, Salt, to taste, Pepper, to taste, 2 teaspoons dried Greek oregano, Greek olive oil, to garnish, feta cheese

After you punch the dough down, begin making the ladenia. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a round pizza pan or a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Roll out the dough or stretch it onto the pan. Drizzle the olive oil over the dough and then top with onion and tomato slices. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the toppings, to taste. Sprinkle with dried oregano. Place the pan in the center of the oven and bake until the dough is cooked all the way through. This should take 40-45 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool for about five minutes before serving.

Absolutely loved your bread recipe....better than mine!!
For a more traditional "Greek Flatbread Pizza", I added crumbled feta, sliced Kalamata olives and sliced pepperocini a couple minutes before end of baking. After it came out of the oven I sprinkled fresh chopped basil on half the pizza and other half with chopped mint. Try it...Kali Orexi ❣❣

How to make a creamy Greek chicken pasta!

This recipe is perfect for a big family with kids who are picky eaters! You can make this pasta in only 15 minutes, which is the best part! If im cooking it for adults, I always like to add a bit more vegetables since my kids don't really like veggies. You can always choose fresh artichokes or canned, but canned is definitely much faster. Let me know what you think of this recipe!

Did you know that fresh mint can help cure nausea?

Greeks have been using herbs for medicinal purposes for generations, and these recipes and tips have been passed down from generation to generation. Greek spearmint or mint is one of the best ways to cure nausea and an upset stomach. Of course, if you have a serious medical illness you should seek the help of a doctor because mint is not a replacement for medical treatment. Next time you feel ill and nauseous, try adding mint to your herbal tea and see what happens!

Have you ever made Greek fruit soaked in wine and honey?

This is one of the easiest and fastest Greek recipes that you can make! All you need is seasonal fruit, your favorite Greek sweet wine, some honey, and any spices that you prefer. I like to use a Greek honey as well, and if I can find it I will use pine tree honey. It has an amazing aromatic flavor. Here is my recipe

  • 1/2 cups sweet red wine such as mavrodaphne
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice (fresh is best)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups seasonal fruit of your choice
First, you need to cut up your fruits and then make the mixture separately. Drizzle the mixture on top of the fruit, and there you have it! It's best serve chilled from the fridge and even on top of yogurt.

How to make homemade Greek yogurt

This process is straight out of a Greek village! Fresh Greek yogurt is so wonderful, and tastes nothing like what you get at the grocery store. The flavor is so rich, and the texture is so creamy. If you have the time and resources, I really suggest that you try this out.

Have you ever made a traditional Greek rabbit recipe?

Rabbit is considered a delicacy in Greece, even though it's not so popular today. There are many different variations of rabbit that are made in Greece, but the most popular is a rabbit stew. The stew consists of tomato, carrots, celery, a whole rabbit, onions, garlic, and spices such as rosemary, allspice, bay leaf, pepper, and salt. This is a great recipe that I have tried myself and I like to make every now and then when I can find rabbit at the butcher or farmers market.
