Ryan & I love to go to Newk’s & order their Mediterranean pizza….oh my word, it’s delish. But what we love even more is when we can recreate a recipe at home! Well, last night – we did it. We made a bomb version of Mediterranean pizza! We may or may not have eaten the entire thing between the two of us.
Mediterranean Pizza a la Dixon
1 premade whole wheat crust (I bought one in the deli section at Brookshires for $2)
basil pesto (I used Buitoni)
handful of cherry tomatoes cut in halves
handful of kalamata olives cut in halves
1/2 onion sliced thin
feta cheese crumbled
mozzarella cheese shredded
basil leaves shredded
grilled chicken cut in thin strips
extra virgin olive oil
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread a thin layer of pesto on the pizza crust. Layer on (to your taste) tomatoes, olives, onion, cheeses, basil leaves, and chicken. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper. Drizzle EVOO on the outer portion of the crust and then sprinkle that with a small amount of garlic power. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is browned & cheese is melted. Drizzle entire pizza with a little EVOO and serve. Enjoy!
While we cooked, the girls were making their own pizzas with play dough. Cuties!
