Greek Pizza with Italian Sausage

Serve this pizza right off the grill as an appetizer or a main meal along with a salad. Italian sausage blended with tomatoes, feta, basil and a drizzle of Greek Salad dressing will have you dreaming of the Mediterranean.

  • 4 hand stretched naan breads (or homemade pizza crust)
  • 1 pkg Italian sausage (basil, mild or hot)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled or chopped
  • 1 large tomato, chopped fine
  • 2 Tbsp freshly chopped or freeze dried basil (approx)
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (approx)
  • 4 Tbsp Greek salad dressing ( I used Renee's Mediterranean Greek)
  1. To prepare pizza for cooking on the grill, place naan bread on pizza stone or on doubled up extra strong aluminum foil lined with parchment paper. You can also bake it on a cookie sheet in the oven.
  2. Remove the sausage from it casing and cook on medium heat, breaking it apart and stirring until it resembles cooked hamburger meat.  Add chopped onion and mushrooms, stirring and cooking until soft. One package (4 sausages) will make more than needed. Use for double recipe or freeze extra cooked sausage for another use or time.
  3. Spread cooked sausage, onion, mushroom mixture on naan. Add green pepper if using. You can also use chopped kalamata olives according to taste. 
  4. Top with chopped tomatoes, feta, basil.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan and then the mozzarella cheese.
  6. Just before placing on the grill, drizzle with dressing. 
  7. Cook with lid closed (checking) until cheese is melted. (about 10 - 15 minutes)


  1. The "stretched naan bread" sounds like a nice and easy shortcut...where can you purchase this, please? Wonderful recipe - thanks!

    1. Where I live it's readily available in almost any grocery store. I get it at Safeway. I'm not sure if Coscto has the hand stretched bread, but they do sell naan bread. If you are willing to go the extra mile to make your own bread, there is a recipe here

  2. I love Greek food so I'm sure I will love this. Thank you!

  3. That looks delicious! I'll be right over ;-)

    BTW came here via Granny Annie's blog.

  4. My mouth is watering - that looks soooo good! Never thought of doing this on the grill.

  5. What temperature would you use if you baked it in the oven?

    1. About 375 F . . . cook until cheese has melted and pizza is sizzling . . . 10 - 15 minutes.

  6. We buy gyro meat to make our Greek pizza. Shred some up...keep the rest in the freezer. Though our Greek pizza is cold. We use a crescent roll crust, top with the cucumber yogurt sauce. Then sprinkle on chopped cucumbers, tomato, onion, gyro meat, sprinkle with chopped dill or parsley, sliced black olives and feta cheese crumbles. It makes a nice appetizer for summer meals or a meal in itself.
