Greek Pizza with prawns and caramelized onions

I have fallen in love with the Greek cuisine long time ago. I love its freshness, simplicity and those incredible flavors, all at the same time. Today I want to share with you what it has been a huge hit in our house this summer, so far.. A delicious, healthy Greek Pizza with prawns and caramelized onions, made from scratch using the Greek Pita Bread recipe I have made during the World Cup marathon.

You can use my pitta bread recipe if you have some spare time or you can use Greek pitta breads from shops.

When you think of Greek food, what comes first in your mind?….

Feta cheese?

Fresh seafood?

Eggplants…and maybe a cold Mythos beer???

This Greek Pizza with prawns and caramelized onions recipe includes feta cheese, prawns, onions, fresh herbs, paprika and yoghurt. You cannot go more lighter on a pizza, right?
