Greek Veggie Pizza Squares with crescent roll crust, tzatziki cream cheese, fresh Greek vegetables, and crumbled feta cheese! This makes a great appetizer or easy weeknight meal!
Is it just me, or is Greek food where it’s at? Maybe it’s my love of feta talking…..but I really think there’s something superior about Greek cuisine. The fresh veggies, the delicious sauces, the bold flavors, the cheeses, the desserts. The olives! I could go on and on!
Before we were married, Jorden and I would get Greek take-out at least once a week. There was an amazing Greek cafe near his apartment, and they had the best chicken gyros I’ve ever tasted. Since neither of us really did much cooking at that point, it was one of the staples in our diet! We were completely spoiled, and didn’t realize how much we had come to rely on it until we got married and moved into a house in the suburbs. And no more cute little Greek cafe!
Luckily, though, we did have a not-quite-as-cute Greek restaurant just around the corner from our new house. The food was nowhere as good as what we had become accustomed to, but it still did the job. And then, one sad day, it went out of business. A sub shop took its place, and our lives were never the same.
Since then, we’ve moved yet again, and can you believe there’s NOWHERE to get a gyro around us? It’s craziness! The only good news, I guess, is that Greek food is just as amazing when you make it at home. I make Greek salad like it’s my job, and I thought I’d bring my love of Greek to the appetizer realm with this simple, delicious Greek Veggie Pizza! You know the traditional veggie pizza, made with crescent rolls and Ranch dressing mix? Well – this is that. Only Greek! And so much more delicious.
