Ready to do something different than the standard pepperoni and mozz when it comes to pizza night? You can’t go wrong by veering a little east from Italy to Greece.
This Easy Greek Pizza, packed with Greek flavors from the herbs, spinach, and feta cheese is a fabulous taste treat, one that I’ve made dozens of times — and even convinced some of my picky children to love as well.
This Greek Pizza is simple and affordable, yet packed with flavor. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how tasty spinach on a pizza is! For the carnivores among you, you could easily add grilled chicken or steak.
Either way, it’s a fabulous meal and perfect for Meatless Mondays or your next Pizza Night.
Why Make This
It’s delicious. What makes this homemade Greek Pizza is the spinach and feta cheese. I embellish it with extra vegetables for a little heft. It’s meatless while still being hearty. The tang of the cheese and the sweetness of the sauce play well with the woodsy mushrooms and fresh spinach flavor.
It’s easy. Whether you make a homemade pizza dough or buy a store bought pizza crust, this Greek Pizza comes together in minutes! The toppings are simple to prep and fuss-free to assemble.
Here’s what you’ll need to make our Easy Greek Pizza Recipe:
pizza dough – We have more than one homemade pizza dough recipe for you to try here on Good Cheap Eats, but you can also use a store bought pizza dough or even a prebaked base like a tortilla, french bread, or pita bread.
tomato sauce – I like to spread canned tomato sauce on the crust, but you can also use extra virgin olive oil or your favorite pizza sauce. Since I’m going to add seasoning, I don’t worrk about the latter. Don’t forget to freeze tomato sauce if you’ve got extra.
Greek seasoning – I use my homemade Greek Spice Blend, but you can use a commercial blend or even just a ½ teaspoon dried oregano if that’s what you have.
veggies – I like to layer baby spinach, sliced mushrooms, and seeded, chopped tomatoes. Check the variations below for other good veggies to add.
There are so many different directions you can take this Greek Pizza recipe. Add artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, a bit of lemon zest, roasted red peppers, fresh dill, or roasted eggplant to zhuz it up and make it your own.

Traditional Greek-American pizza has a thicker crust. Consider making our Pan Pizza with these Greek-inspired toppings.
Here’s how to make this Easy Greek Pizza:
Preheat the oven to 475 °. Spray a pizza screen with nonstick cooking spray. You can also line a baking sheet with parchment paper or sprinkle cornmeal on a greased baking sheet.
Flatten the dough into a thin round and place on the prepared screen or pan.
Spread the tomato sauce over the crust and sprinkle with Greek Spice Blend.
Layer the spinach leaves over the sauce. Layer the mushrooms, feta cheese, and tomatoes over the spinach. Top with mozzarella.
Bake pizza for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust is crisp and the cheese melted and lightly browned.
You don’t need to invest in expensive equipment to make great pizza at home. Simply use what you have until you’ve mastered your favorite recipes, then upgrade as it makes sense for you. We love these pizza tools.
Spinach, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, fresh dill, garlic, and roasted eggplant are often used in Greek cooking. They taste great on a pizza!
Traditionally Greek-American pizza is thick, baked in a shallow pan. To recreate this at home, use our Pan Pizza crust.
