For the dough:

  • 4 1/2 cups (600 grams) all-purpose flour plus extra for kneading
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 grams) water
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 grams) Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons (35 grams) olive oil

For the pizza sauce:

  • 1/4 cup thick tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

For the toppings:

  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 small tomato, sliced or 10 cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 2-3 tablespoons Kalamata olives pited and sliced
  • 7 oz (200 grams) feta cheese crumbled
  • 7 oz (200 grams) mozzarela cheese shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Make the dough: combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and knead until you get a sticky dough. Cover with cling film/plastic wrap and let it rest for 8 – 12 hours (if you don't want to wait for 8 hours for the dough to ferment, use 3 teaspoons of active dry yeast instead of 1/2 teaspoon).

  2. Shape the dough: Divide the dough in half and shape it into 2 balls. Sprinkle a large piece of baking paper with some flour and transfer the one piece of dough in the middle. Flatten it with your hands and then with circular motions and using your fingers, strech the dough from the middle towards the edges and make a large disc. Let it rest for 20 minutes and do the same with the second piece of dough.

  3. Preheat your oven to 390°F (200°C) (if you have a pizza stone, place that in the oven also).

    Otherwise bake the pizza on a sheet pan.

  4. Make the tomato sauce : mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and divide it between the two pizza crusts. Spread with the back of a spoon.

  5. Top each pizza with the feta cheese, the oregano, the olives, the mozzarela cheese, the green pepper, the tomato and the onion slices. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned. Eat!

Recipe Notes

This is a useful video on how to stretch pizza dough

Don't use any salt for the sauce because the cheeses and the olives are already salty enough

For a more browned crust, you can par-bake it for 15 minutes before adding the sauce and the toppings
