I wanted to create a pizza that took its inspiration from the salads I enjoyed when I visited the Greek island of Corfu more than 20 years ago. It's so good and so easy to prepare. —Amanda Cooke, Los Angeles, California

This is the first time I have ever rated a recipe, but I had to comment on this great pizza! It is one of the best pizzas my husband and I have ever had. He told me I had better find the recipe (I have many on my kitchen counter) to make it again!

Feta cheese is first recorded in the Byzantine Empire under the name πρÏŒσφατος (prósphatos, "recent", i.e. fresh), and was associated specifically with Crete. An Italian visitor to Candia in 1494 describes its storage in brine clearly.[7]

The Greek word "feta" comes from the Italian word fetta ("slice").[8][9] It was introduced into the Greek language in the 17th century. Opinions vary whether it refers to the method of cutting the cheese in slices to serve on a plate or because of the practice of slicing it to place in barrels

Haven't made it yet but might do soon as it sounds great & easy.

To the people in charge of Taste of Home. Yes the meaning is slice /piece and could mean the same in Italian but it's not from the Italian word "fette". It's from the Greek word 'feta". Please take into consideration that I'm Greek & live in Greece and would know what I'm talking about.
