What Makes a Mediterranean Pizza Different From Other Pizzas?

Mediterranean pizza vs Traditional Pizza

For pizza lovers who prefer non-traditional pizzas, a Mediterranean pizza may be for you. Pepperoni, cheese and sausage pizzas taste good, but they are very basic. Each is a generic pizza that can be found at any pizza shop in the country. A Mediterranean Pizza, on the other hand, is unique. Mediterranean Pizzas are specialty items. You won’t find them at your local Domino’s or Pizza Hut. Instead, you’ll find Mediterranean pizza at classier joints, such as Mona Lisa Pizza. In fact, Mona Lisa Pizza’s Mediterranean pizza is one of the restaurant’s two signature pizzas. It’s a pie that is handled with care and its target audience is the individual who wants to try something different.

The Mediterranean Pizza at Mona Lisa Pizza consists of:

  • Mona Lisa SpecialsGreen Olives
  • Black Olives
  • Tomato
  • Jalapeno
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Feta Cheese
  • Mona Lisa’s Specialty Sauce

You’ll find olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and various cheeses to be the primary toppings for a Mediterranean pizza. Of course, Mediterranean pizza stems from Mediterranean countries. Mediterranean countries enjoy their cheeses! This particular brand of pizza generally consists of feta cheese, blue cheese, or goat cheese. The different cheeses are part of what makes Mediterranean pizzas unique, especially here in America. It’s not too often you get to try a pizza topped with feta cheese in the states. Ultimately, the Mediterranean cheese used in the recipe is the cultural touch. The additional toppings serve as complimentary tastes.

Other traditional Mediterranean toppings:

  • Spinach Leaves
  • Pine Nuts
  • Bell Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Basil

Certainly, you get the idea by this point. Mediterranean pizza provides a succulent, longer-lasting taste that is unmatched by other types of pizzas. Everyone is familiar with the supreme pizza, right? Yes, the supreme pizza is made up of many toppings; however, supreme toppings are tossed onto a pizza in a frivolous manner purposed to meet the many taste buds of a large consumer base. Moreover, supreme pizza does not have the personal touch like that of a Mediterranean pizza. If you want something different, go the Mediterranean route, not the supreme one.

Mediterranean pizza is also a healthier pizza option. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as healthy cheese. Feta cheese is made up of either sheep or goat milk; it is not the processed dairy that is so often consumed in the U.S. Feta cheese is considered the healthiest of cheeses; however, it does have some nutritional drawbacks such as high sodium and saturated fat. In other words, feta cheese is good for you, but just try not to become obsessed with it.
