Great Greek Pizza

 

What is Greek Pizza?

It can be a style of pizza crust that is baked in a shallow pan. However, my version has everything to do with the toppings and nothing to do with the crust or the pan.

 

I use The Best Homemade Pizza Crust recipe for my Great Greek Pizza. You will love it!  This pizza dough is refined sugar free and makes the perfect pizza, plus you can freeze it for your future pizza nights.

 

 

How do you make homemade pizza in the oven?

 

You want to make sure your oven is preheated and very hot. I suggest heating the oven to 500°F or higher. Arrange a rack in the lower-middle part of the oven (if you have a baking stone, place it on the rack) and heat the oven to 500°F or higher.

 

 

Do you have to use a pizza stone?

 

The ceramic material of a pizza stone holds heat more evenly than a metal baking sheet, and the porous surface draws water out of particularly wet areas of the dough as it cooks.  Also, when you preheat the stone, it gives the dough a strong burst of initial heat which causes the crust to puff.

 

However, I still use a metal pizza pan. I have both a pizza pan with holes (this one) and a solid pizza pan (this one). They are both amazing and give the pizza a crispy bottom while still allowing for a doughy, chewy edge.

 

 

Can you eat pizza when you are trying to lose weight?

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs, I loved pizza. I would eat half of a large pizza, breadsticks, some form of chocolate for dessert and wash it down with soda. I still love pizza and enjoy eating it weekly, but now that I know better, I make my own pizza.  It allows me to control the amount of sodium, fat and calories. Plus, I love that I’m not ingesting all of the preservatives and chemicals found in fast food pizzas.
