• For the Pizza
  • (I use store bought pizza dough) but you can use your favorite homemade recipe
  • 10 oz bag frozen spinach
  • 1-2 cups cheese, mozzarella or cheddar
  • 6 oz. (or more) Crumbled Feta
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • For the Basil Pesto
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Basil
  • 2-3 Tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Pecorino Romano cheese, shredded
  • Olive Oil, to desired consistency
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Put about a 1/4 inch of water in the bottom of a pan, toss in the spinach and cover. Steam until soft. Drain the water, and squeeze out as much juice from the spinach as you can. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine the basil leaves, sliced almonds, garlic cloves, p romano cheese, and olive oil.
  4. Pulse until it’s a puree. Add olive oil as necessary.
  5. Make your dough and either roll it out, or hand toss until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Pull your warmed pan or stone out of the oven and toss your crust on.
  6. Spread your homemade pesto until its evenly coated on the dough.
  7. Sprinkle on your mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
  8. Cover with dollops of spinach everywhere, and coat with feta. Add as much as you’d like
  9. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top. Toss in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust is a nice golden brown.

I love a good pizza, and to eat one that is actually nutritious is a bonus! I just purchased a canister of Feta cheese in Costco and can’t wait to make this pizza tonight. ( Plus I’m always looking for an excuse to eat cheese)
