Greek Pizza!

Normally, I am not the kind of blogger to share recipes, actually this is a first....because well, that just isn't on my radar.  I love (a little too much) food, but often am lacking in my efforts to be creative in the kitchen- unless it is something new on the wall!  


My dear friends, Cari Teff and Kate Stuart creators of "Bites" created this amazing recipe incorporating Odyssey feta cheese for a local cheese company, Klondike Cheese.   
They kindly gave me their permission to share this with my friends.
