  • Spinach Sesame Pizza

    I found the basis for this recipe in a cook book I had at home. With a few modifications I was able to make it IC friendly.

    Dough- Trader Joe's sells a pretty good pizza dough with no preservatives but any basic pizza dough will do.

    10oz. frozen chopped spinach
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 bunch green onions finely chopped (leave these out if you can't tolerate them)
    2 garlic cloves finely chopped
    4-5 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
    salt to taste (and pepper if you can handle it)
    Handful of mozzarella cheese
    sesame seeds

    Preheat oven to 425. Thaw the spinach and squeeze well to remove excess water. In medium saucepan, heat oil. Add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring about two minutes. Add spinach and half the feta. Stir well and salt to taste.

    Spread the mixture on the dough, add the rest of the feta, as many sesame seeds as you like and the mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

    Even my boyfriend who hates spinach liked this!

    Yum Sas, sounds really good. We are fortunate enough to have a dough company that makes a whole grain organic dough with flax seeds and all the good stuff (and no soy). We have to watch the spinach due to Bob's blood thinner drugs (no dark greens or very few). Oh yeah, and broccoli with a little white sauce is good as well, throw a little leftover chicken on there, with your pref of cheese, pizza can be pretty nutritious with the right combo. And do love those sesame seeds! Have you also tried fruit "pizza" with pears and cin and sug or honey and maybe some blues? Pretty scrumptious. And fun for the kids. Thanks for the info, Jill wife of Bob

      That is similar to a vegi pizza my husband and I make in the summer but instead of sesame seeds it has shredded fresh basil leaves. It also has red bell pepper and red onions (which we pre cook but green onions could easily be substituted) and mushrooms. Are original recipe (from Bon Appetite I think) had goat cheese but we have substituted mozarella and/or feta at times. All good and very healthy. We also use Trader Joe's crust.
