Pizza provides an opportunity to toss all your favorite ingredients in one place, cover it in cheese, and bake it to perfection. Pizza's versatility might be one of the reasons it is such a wildly popular dish.

In this instance, Mediterranean pizza is a great answer to an overcrowded pantry or refrigerator as the topping ideas are really endless, even beyond what the recipe below suggests. Just make sure to include good quality olive oil, herbs, feta, and heart of palm for traditional flavors.
This pizza comes together quickly, especially if you’re using a simple store-bought dough. The method is just about layering toppings evenly so each bite is full of flavor.


  • 1 (1-pound) ball pizza dough, store-bought or homemade

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1 1/2 roasted red peppers, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

  • 6 ounces grape tomatoes, halved

  • 6 ounces feta cheese

  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced hearts of palm

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

Recipe Variations

  • In place of heart of palm, an equal amount of chopped marinated artichoke hearts can also be used.
  • If you’re a meat-eater, you could add sauteed ground lamb or chopped cooked chicken seasoned with lemon and herbs to the pizza as well. Just add the cooked meat when you return the pizza to the oven for the second bake.
  • A great way to add nutritious, leafy greens to your meal, is to toss some fresh arugula with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice, and top the pizza fresh from the oven just before serving with this bright, peppery salad.
