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 ❣❣

Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

My husband has a gluten allergy and it’s been pretty difficult traveling and eating gluten free. There have been many cases where people tell us that something is gluten free and it’s actually not, and he ends up having an allergic reaction. Is anyone gluten free and has traveled around Greece? How difficult was it and can you share a bit about your experience?

How to spruce up your leftover keftedes!

I always find myself having leftover meatballs or keftedes need a bit of sprucing up the next day. What I like to do is make a tomato sauce with wine, and heat up the meatballs with the sauce so that they soak it up and don't stay dry. This is the recipe for the sauce

- sauté one onion and two garlic cloves with olive oil
- add half a jar of tomato paste
-add cumin, black pepper, ground clove and basil
-after all the spices have been cooked, add one cup of red wine
-once the wine is bubbling, add one jar of tomato sauce
-cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat

Soft and tender Greek lamb shank

I love making this tender lamb shank anytime I have a special occasion. While you can cook lamb shake in many different ways, I like to go sit in the oven just until the outside gets a nice darker color and some of the fat renders off. Of course, you should always serve this with either rice or potatos.

What are your favorite flavors of Greek ice cream?

Personally, I have to say baklava or kaïmaki. For those of you that haven’t tried kaïmaki, I highly recommend it. It’s a traditional Greek ice cream made from masticha. You can find it at most Greek grocery stores and ice cream stores. What is your favorite Greek ice cream flavor?
