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.

Odyssey Greek Salad Topped Pizza

½ red onion, thinly sliced
¾ cup kalamata olives, sliced
8 ounces Odyssey feta cheese, divided
1 pizza crust or flatbread, baked
¼ cup greek vinaigrette (see recipe below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine mayo, cream cheese, 4 oz. Odyssey feta, and garlic.  Spread over prepared pizza crust and bake for 8 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix salad greens and veggies in a large bowl, toss with vinaigrette.  Place salad on pizza crust and top with remaining 4 oz. Odyssey Feta and enjoy!
