COMFORT FOOD / GREEK STYLE PIZZA

Today some blogging friends from The Garden Charmers are sharing their favourite winter comforts. From delicious food to creative handwork projects, we’ve got what you need to make winter a little warmer. See the bottom of this post for all of the project links.

But first, here’s mine:

Comfort Food, we all have our favorites. Sometimes it’s food we grew up with, recipes that are handed down from family to family. It’s almost always a dish that we could eat just about any time or any place and never tire of.

I’ve a long list of comfort foods but one of my favorites is the Greek Style Pizza that Chris makes. It started off with a recipe idea he found but was soon to be altered to his own style. The end result is a delicious, thin crust pizza rich with flavors and nutrition. It can make a meal or be served to company as a snack.
