Greek Pizza



It had been over two years since I made a Greek Pizza.
A family favourite .


Greek Pizza is topped with homemade pizza sauce and
Mozzarella cheese,
and roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic, oregano and lemon.


Potatoes can be sliced 
or


cubed


I know it sounds a little odd, but trust  me, roasted potatoes are wonderful on Pizza.

Greek Pizza

Boil some 1 inch cubed potatoes for three minutes.
Drain and add back to pan and shake over burner until potatoes are dry. (1 minute).
Heat some olive oil in a shallow roasting pan in a 400 - 450° oven
And when hot add the potatoes.
Shake to coat in oil and add 5 or 6 whole peeled garlic cloves.
Return pan to the oven and roast until golder brown. Shake occasionally.
Season with oregano, a squeezed lemon and salt and pepper.


Pizza Sauce
===========
After playing around with many different pizza sauces over the years this is the one that I  settled on as my favourite. It is an uncooked sauce with lots of flavour.

1 -  28 oz can quality Italian Tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
Fennel seed
Oregano
Basil
2 to 3 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

Puree tomatoes with the minced garlic. Grind the fennel seeds. Add the seeds and the oregano, basil, and the olive oil and mix together.

NOTE: I use a stick blender and blend all of these ingredients right in the can.
