Greek Veggie Crescent Appetizer Pizza

Greek Pizza Recipe

If you're looking for a simple New Year's Eve appetizer, this tasty Greek pizza is sure to please! It's really easy to prepare, and the flavor will appeal to adults and kids alike. My husband and oldest son may haven eaten 2/3 of this pizza between themselves...


I've teamed up with Marzetti again this year to share some tasty recipes showcasing their Simply Dressed line of salad dressing. Made with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and canola oil, along with other all natural ingredients, Marzetti Simply Dressed comes in 11 different flavors to pair beautifully with any salad choice.

Marzetti Greek Feta Salad Dressing

This Greek pizza recipe uses the Marzetti Simply Dressed Greek Feta salad dressing for a punch of flavor. This particular variety is only available in select markets currently, but I'll share some simple adaptations using other varieties at the end of this post.

Crescent Roll Crust

Refrigerated crescent roll dough forms the crust for this appetizer pizza. Simply press two cans of your favorite crescent roll dough out into a 15x10-inch pan, making sure to completely close the seams, and prick all over with a fork to prevent any bubbles from forming while baking. Bake at 375 degrees for about 13 minutes, until golden brown, and then cool completely.

While the crust is baking, cream together the Marzetti Simply Dressed Greek Feta salad dressing, softened cream cheese, garlic powder and dill. This would also be an excellent time to chop up your cucumber, tomatoes, and black olives.

Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the cooled crust, and top with the chopped cucumber, tomatoes, black olives, and crumbled feta cheese.

Greek Pizza

Cut the Greek pizza into triangles and serve immediately, or you can prepare it up to 24 hours in advance of your get together. Just cover the entire baking sheet with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate.

The store I shop at doesn’t sell the Marzetti Simply Dressed Greek Feta Salad Dressing so I tried the Marzetti’s Otria Cucumber Dill Feta Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip and just added the garlic powder to the cream cheese and the Cucumber Dill Feta Dip and it was amazing! Big hit at our pig-out at work.

So glad it was a hit, Erin! We’ll definitely be making this again soon — maybe for Super Bowl Sunday.
