Recipe Box: Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza

The new school year begins tomorrow and I would normally cap off the summer holidays with a dinner out with my family or friends. However, this is a year of great change and I’m alone tonight. I didn’t want to go out alone, though that’s something I am more than used to doing because of traveling. I did want to do something out of the ordinary, however, so I made pizza.

I don’t write recipe posts nearly as often as I should for the amount that I cook, but I figured I’d write this one because it’s a super easy recipe that a typical working person might actually attempt. (I’m also a bit sad at being alone and writing gives me something to do.)

What You Need
Precooked pizza crust (I normally aim for whole wheat but couldn’t find whole wheat pizza crust in either of the two stores where I do most of my shopping)
1 clove garlic
About 10 oz fresh spinach
Sundried tomatos in oil, sliced into julienne strips with 2 tbsp oil reserved
Kalamata olives, halved
Feta cheese
Red pepper flakes

What To Do
1. Preheat oven to 450ºF
2. In a frying pan on low heat, warm 2 tbsps of oil from the sundried tomatoes
3. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute
4. Slice spinach leaves into strips and add to pan; sauté for 1 minute
5. Top pizza crust with spinach mixture and as many sundried tomatoes and olives as you’d like
6. Scatter as much feta cheese as you’d like on top
7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until crust is browned to your liking
8. Finish with a sprinkle red pepper flakes for added heat

And that’s it! There’s obviously a lot of choice and personal preference here and let’s face it, it’s pizza. Pizza can literally be anything and it’s almost always tasty.

Bon appétit!
