Ladenia Milou/Greek Olive Oil Flatbread/Ladenia Greek Pizza

Ladenia is a local food of Kimolos, a small Greek island in Aegean sea. Traditional Greek foods are served in Kimolos island and this island is quite popular for its Ladenia, a kind of pizza. Ladenia is Greek word of Olive oil, this flatbread is almost like pizza but without cheese. A bread dough when flattened and topped with onions, tomatoes with olive oil,once baked is called Ladenia. Since this pizza like flatbread is prepared very much with olive oil, this dish is also known as olive oil flat bread. This is a great snack or a light meal or else a simple starter depending upon how you serve this fantastic bread. This Ladenia is also famous in Milos, an another Greek island. Not to forget that this pizza is completely vegan.Obviously if you love pizza and if you are a vegan lover, then this Greek pizza will definitely please your tastebuds.

Usually topped with onions and tomatoes, this ladenia can be topped with varieties of veggies or else simply with Marinara sauce or else with pesto without cheese. You can also add any seasonal vegetables as well. I have crossed couple of Ladenia with olives, mushrooms, bellpeppers with loads of onions and tomatoes. Since i want to enjoy my Ladenia with onions and tomatoes, i just went on with onions and some sun dried tomatoes. Kids enjoyed thoroughly and this Ladenia vanished very much quickly, obviously am gonna bake this Ladenia again this weekend. Yes kids loved this Greek pizza very much. Am running this month's blogging marathon as Mega marathon with A-Z Baking around the world as theme.
