Dining In Tonight

Josh and I experimented with making a Greek Pizza tonight.  We’ve had a similar pizza before with The Pernecky’s, but this was a first for us actually making it.  I originally got the idea from a Rachael Ray recipe, but we tweaked it a little.  It turned out so great, so I wanted to share the recipe with you...

You’ll Need:

  • Pre-made pizza dough
  • 1 medium onion - chopped
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • fresh spinach
  • nutmeg, salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lb. cooked gyro meat (we got ours from a local Greek restaurant, – you can also sub chicken if you like)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • feta cheese crumbles
  • mozzarella cheese - shredded

Roll out pre-made pizza dough (we got ours from the Publix bakery) and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.

While the crust is browning, sauté an onion and a few cloves of grated garlic and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.  Then add in a few handfuls of fresh spinach until it wilts. 

When the crust is ready, pull it out of the oven and top it with Tzatziki Sauce.  Add the sliced grape tomatoes and the sautéed onion mixture.  Top with cooked gyro meat, and finish off with feta crumbles and mozzarella cheese.


Pop the pizza back into the oven until the cheese is melted.  (about 15 min.)

Here is the finished product! 


I made a side salad to go with our dinner, but the pizza was so good that we didn’t even touch the salad!  I guess I’ll have it for leftovers tomorrow.

Let me know if you try this recipe.   I know you will love it!



  1. Yummo! :) Maybe next time Im on your side of town I can come for lunch!



  2. Simply Delicioso! What a great date night in :)

    Ok, so now I have to try this...we love anything Greek! The Snickerdoodles were so yummy...used your recipe :) Can't wait to give the pizza a whirl

    Many Hugs,

  3. Yum, yum, yum! My stomach literally started growling as I read this post; looks dee-lish! Time for dinner!

  4. Side salad? I do not understand that kind of terminology...

    Gyro meat is AWESOME! Protip: Make sure YOU'RE the one going to pick up the gyro meat, that way you can snag a few pieces while it's piping hot! Not that I have any experience in this area....

  5. Okay, I'm going to HAVE to make this! It looks fantastic! Man! Where's the gyro meat when you need it?!

  6. Omg this looks so good! I have to try this one night my hubby is home!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
