Greek-Style Pizza Recipe

Greek-Style Pizza Recipe

Save yourself a trip to Greece and serve this appetizer pizza at your next holiday party. To ensure a crisp and flaky crust, before assembling the pizza, drain the tomato slices on a paper towel to soak up any extra moisture. —Claire Torrice, Oswego, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 package (16 ounces, 14-inch x 9-inch sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, melt butter. Transfer to a small bowl; add oil and set aside. In the same skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and garlic until tender. Add spinach; saute until wilted. Add the lemon juice, basil and oregano; set aside.
  • 2. Brush a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish with reserved butter mixture. Place one sheet of phyllo dough in baking dish; brush lightly with butter mixture. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Repeat layers with remaining phyllo, brushing each layer.
  • 3. Top with the spinach mixture; sprinkle with cheeses. Coat both sides of tomato slices with bread crumbs; arrange over top. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Yield: 18 servings.
