Greek Pizza Crust

Greek Pizza Crust

Greek pizza crust has its own individual taste, thanks to the Greek oregano. For an authentic Greek pizza, you should layer the Greek pizza crust with layers of Manouri and mozzarella cheese, then mushrooms, broccoli, onion, thinly sliced Roma tomatoes,

Calamato olives, and Greek bell peppers. Sprinkle the pizza with thinly sliced fresh basil, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil before baking if you want a really authentic Greek pizza recipe.

1 envelope dry yeast
2 tablespoons Greek oregano, finely chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin Greek olive oil

¼ cup stone ground cornmeal
½ teaspoon sugar
2/3 cup warm water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine and knead everything together for 8 minutes.

Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let it rise somewhere warm for 1 hour. Knead the dough again and roll it out to pan size.

Add toppings, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted.
