Pizza in Greece
Most Greeks use more olive Oil than Italians on their pizza, and they also use a different type of Tomato for the base. Greek pizzas are usually cooked in an electric not wood fired oven, and cooked at lower temperatures.

Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let mixture stand for five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
TIP: We have other dough recipes if you would like to try your hand at sourdough, poolish or more.
Tomato Pizza Sauce Method
You can either make your own tasty pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local supermarket.
- Stir in all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Using either a whisk, or blender, mix well.
- Let sit for five minutes.
- The pizza sauce is ready to use immediately or chill in fridge for 2-3 days.
- You can also freeze any leftover sauce for up to 3 months.
Try using a pesto sauce, or adding a little pesto to your sauce for a new flavour.
Preparing Lamb Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Goat’s Cheese
- Lemon Juice
I find this pizza very tasty by itself, yet why not make some homemade garlic bread as well?
Put the Lamb pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Rosemary has been used for cooking since at least 500 BC, if not before. An ancient legend says that the Virgin Mary placed her blue cloak over a white flowered rosemary bush while she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub was then named the “Rose of Mary”.
In Greek mythology, it is said that Rosemary was draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite when she rose out of the sea. As a medicinal herb, it has long been suggested that it helps strengthen your memory and the brain overall.
When making Lamb Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have already, and avoid spending a ton of money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
The one kitchen tool every adult should have in their drawer. See our article on how to cut pizza for the various cutting tools.
Yes, I know, many people swear by hand stretching, however there’s times in all our lives where we need a good wooden roller.
A pizza stone really helps create a fantastic tasting pizza at home. Learn how to clean and care for your Pizza Stone.
Goat’s Cheese is often called by its French name, Chèvre, which means goat. The distinctive character of Goat’s Cheese comes from capric acid, a flavourful fatty acid that promotes good intestinal bacteria in humans.
Because of its low lactose content, Goat’s Cheese is a fantastic choice of cheese for people with lactose intolerance.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some FAQ and their answers to the most common pizza making questions.
Can I use stevia when making pizza dough?
It isn’t advised to use any sugar substitutes in your dough. They often won’t feed the yeast and they have a different burning level than normal sugars. You can try of course, however you’ve been warned.
When is pepperoni pizza day?
Pepperoni Pizza day is officially 20 September, however you should also note that this style of pizza is an American invention, and not Italian. It is likely to only really be celebrated in the USA.
Can I use the pan that came in the stove for making pizza?
Possibly, however I always recommend using a pizza stone in your typical kitchen oven, rather than an oven pan. Most oven pans have high sides, and make it hard for the base to get cooked through thoroughly. A pizza stone solves this issue. Short answer? Try it and see!
