Mediterranean Pizza

Remember that contest I entered that you all so kindly voted in? Well, I lost! ūüôĀ I definitely got to the finals because you are awesome, but the chef in charge picking the winner didn’t pick me! Sad day. Oh well. Maybe I’ll go to Hawaii another day.

In the mean time, lets talk about some tasty pizza I made the other day, shall we?

Is it just me, or can you eat anything on top of a pizza? I am totally in love with pizza. I’ve made lots of pizzas in my relatively short life span {Confetti Pizza¬†,Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza, etc.} but never a mediterranean style pizza. Well, Wednesday afternoon the stars aligned and I miraculously had all the ingredients I could possibly think of to put on top of this bad boy. {Thanks, Lindsay’s!}

And lo, the Mediterranean pizza was born.

May we have a moment of silence for this beauty.


Thank you.

Let me tell you guys, mediterranean pizza is my new favorite! Oh man, did this smell amazing coming out of my oven. I didn’t mess around with pizza sauce or marinara on the bottom. I’m a rebel that way. I used straight up garlic butter.

I heart garlic.

Muchos muchos.

Then I added some mozzarella cheese because lets face it: pizza isn’t pizza without a nice layer of cheese. Am I right or am I right? After the cheese, I added artichoke hearts, black olives and green olives and threw my little pizza baby into a very hot oven. 10 minutes later, things were looking and smelling divine. And then for good measure, I topped the hot pizza with tomatoes and green onions for a cold and spicy contrast to the hot and buttery pizza.

Umm, holy amazing batman.

I ate 4 pieces with no shame.

You know you’d eat that many too.

So, make some pizza dough, pick up some olives and get crackin’!

Have a great weekend!

    Sorry that you didn’t win the contest, I hope that you get that trip someday!

    What a great combination of flavours on this pizza and I love that you used garlic butter, yum!

  2. Lauren @ hey, who cut the cheese?

    This looks really delicious! There’s a gourmet pizza place about half a mile from our apartment that makes something similar (read: way too close, so we go there all the time). It’s really good, but also pretty expensive. I’d love to be able to replicate it in my own kitchen. Thanks for sharing!

    So I was just reading about the giveaway, and I have to tell you that the picture of your daughter eating straight out the can is EXACTLY what I did as a 4 year old! In fact, I once ate a whole can with one of my 4 year friends. Whole can. Who knew kids loved black olives?

    Pizza, garlic, olives…. add a cheeky glass of red wine and a quite night at home and I’m the happiest of campers. This (like everything else on your site) is just gorgeous.
