Greek Puff Pastry Pizza with Creamy Feta Sauce

GREEK PUFF PASTRY PIZZA WITH CREAMY FETA SAUCE

This puff pastry pizza starts with a creamy feta sauce and is topped with fresh summer herbs and veggies. A Greek-style pizza that has a light flaky puff pastry crust that melts in your mouth! It’s packed with creamy deliciousness and fresh flavors from the garden.

A PERFECT SUMMERTIME MEAL

In the summertime, meals get really simple at our house because we would rather be outside than stuck at the kitchen sink doing dishes. This meal is a favorite because it’s topped with fresh veggies and herbs from our garden.  Since we use already prepared puff pastry, this pizza is easy and fun to make.

We have a tiny garden and every summer we grow cucumbers, grape tomatoes, dill, herbs, and with luck…spinach. This year was a good year for spinach but last year…not so much.  I love that this Greek puff pastry pizza recipe lets us use nearly everything we grow.

Years ago, when I learned about how heart-healthy Mediterranean food is, it was like a win-win for us because we could sort of have our cake and eat it too. Every member of my family LOVES many of the ingredients that go into most Greek food. We are big fans of Feta, cucumber, and grape tomatoes, and we are obsessed with Kalamata olives!

YOU CAN ALSO SERVE THIS PUFF PASTRY PIZZA AS AN APPITIZER

I know that there are similar puff pastry pizzas out there served as an appetizer, but we make this recipe for supper. Because, in the summertime, it is perfect for a meal. But by all means, if you want to serve it as an appetizer go ahead, it’s great for that too.

In fact, I recently served this puff pastry pizza as an appetizer at a gathering we had in the spring and my guests devoured it. I’m just saying… it’s too good to enjoy only when company comes over.

GREEK PUFF PASTRY PIZZA INSTRUCTIONS

Let puff pastry thaw in the refrigerator overnight, or on the countertop until semi-soft but not warm. Press both puff pastry sheets into a cookie sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Press the edges of the two sheets together to make one large sheet.

Lightly score a 1 inch border around the entire edge of the pan with a paring knife. Use a fork to prick the center of the puff pastry pizza several times. This will allow the edges to puff up while the center stays down.

In a small bowl, slightly beat the egg, and use a baster to brush it onto the enitre surface of the puff pastry. Cook puff pastry, according to package directions until golden brown.

Notes

Greek veggie pizzaThis pizza can also be made with refrigerated crescent dough but is best with puff pastry. Dried leaf dill, basil, and chives can be used if you don't have any fresh on hand, but in the summertime, fresh is always more delicious!
