Here in Indianapolis we have a wonderful local gourmet pizza place called Bazbeaux Pizza. They have a lengthy menu with lots of fantastic signature pizzas, topped with unique combinations of ingredients. It is one of those restaurants that always sounds great to me. Every time I have ever been, I have ordered something new because they have so many yummy options on the menu, and I’m doing my best to try them all :) Last time I went, I decided to try their Greek pizza since I have been on a bit of a Greek kick lately. Not surprisingly, this pizza was phenomenal – maybe the best I’ve had there. And even though it was only a few weeks ago, I’ve been craving it ever since. I decided to take a shot at recreating this fabulous restaurant find at home.
Oh.My.Gosh. I never would have thought I could come this close to the real thing, especially on my first attempt, but honestly this was every bit as good as what I had in the restaurant. I started out with my favorite pizza crust, and then just looked at their menu to be sure I didn’t forget anything. I used my new favorite homemade pizza sauce, layered with fresh spinach, topped with a blend of cheeses close to what Bazbeaux uses, and finished off with black olives, red onion, and feta. I also added a few fresh herbs from my garden for color. I always look forward to going to Bazbeaux, but I won’t be ordering this again since now I can make it just as well at home!
