A fun way to give Spinach a little love!

I'm on a spinach kick lately...maybe it's being pregnant? Either way, my body is loving all the extra Iron I've been including in my diet. One of my favorite new ways to eat Spinach is on Pizza!!!

I do like to make my own crust...but these are my favorite brand when I need a quick option!

I cover the crust with olive oil, garlic salt and lots of fresh grated Parmesan Cheese.

Chop 4-6 Green Onions (use whites and tops) and throw them in a large skillet.

To the onions, add 3 cups of chopped fresh spinach, a few cloves of grated garlic, a pinch of salt and about 1 TBS of olive oil. Cook until the spinach is all wilted.

I also love tomatoes on my pizza, but sometimes they make it I slice my tomatoes and dry them on paper towels for a while before layering onto my crust.

This particular pizza is half spinach/tomato and half tomato/basil. I also love making my spinach pizza with canned artichokes! Just rinse them well, chop and throw into the skillet with the rest of the spinach toppings.

 Top the whole thing with shredded mozzarella cheese and put in a pre-heated oven (follow crust instructions).

This is my spinach/tomato pizza...delicious!
