ATHENOS

Greek Pizza

A colorful medley of roasted red peppers, kalamata olives and artichokes is a perfect complement to the bright flavors of tzatziki and feta cheese. Fun food fact: feta is Greek for "piece" or "slice," and refers to an important step in the process of making this delicious cheese. Made with yogurt, dill and cucumbers, tzatizki is a traditional Greek condiment that adds irresistible flavor to this easy-to-make pizza. Look for tzatziki in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.
