A Few Doubters
I love Greek food so had a thought to create a Greek style pizza. As with most of my food, this is pretty simple to do. It does take a little preparation but personally, I think it is worthwhile. The rest of the family had some doubts but I ended up with pretty good feedback on this one.
The Preparation and Cook
I rarely have made my own dough. This time I used a recipe from Genevieve Taylor’s Wood Fired Oven cookbook. It was really easy to make and worked really well.
The base sauce of the pizza was made up yogurt, with some mint added. Next time I would be tempted to add some cucumber to make it more like a Tzatziki sauce.
For the toppings I used chicken breast which had been marinated in the Gyros Rub from Angus and Oink. I also added some slices of Red Onion and cubes of Feta Cheese. I cooked this on the OONI Pro pizza oven – it’s a great piece of kit.
I really enjoyed this Greek style pizza. As mentioned above the rest of the family were not convinced but it went down pretty well. In additon to making the tweak in the base sauce I also think I would do less feta and maybe add some mozarella. The feta tasted a little sharp, so I think using less and also adding the mozarella would help this. Will definately be cooking this again though!

Ingredients for the Greek Style Pizza
- 1 Chicken Breast
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Tsp White Wine Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Angus & Oink Gyros Rub
- 1 Red Onion
- 50g Feta Cheese (cubed)
- 2 Tbsp Yogurt
- 1/2 Tsp Mint
For the Yogurt Base
Start by making the yogurt base by mixing together the yogurt, mint and a little olive oil and put to one side until you are ready to spread it on the pizza base.
For the Chicken
Mix together the Olive Oil, White Wine Vinegar and Gyros rub in a bowl, then add the chicken. Mix well so the chicken is well covered.
Marinate the chicken for at least 8 hours. If you are short on time you can do this for less time but the longer you can do it the better.
After marinating, remove the chicken from the gyros marinade and thinly slice before cooking. You can allow to cool before placing on the pizza.
For the Pizza Topping
Prepare your pizza dough ready for the toppings.
Spread the yogurt base on the pizza and then add the cooked chicken, sliced red onion and feta cheese before spinkling a little more gyros rub over the pizza.
If cooking on the OONI you should try to get the temperature up to between 400-500°C which will mean the pizza should only take 60 to 90 seconds to cook. You will need to turn the pizza 2 or 3 times.
