Description

Dinner for two: Spinach Pesto Pizza.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Wheat Flour
  • 1 package Dry Active Yeast (.25 Ounce Size)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Warm Water (approximately 110 Degrees F)
  • 1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 ounces, weight Mozzarella Cheese, Thinly Sliced
  • ⅔ cups Basil Pesto, Divided Use
  • 3-½ cups Fresh Spinach, Loosely Packed
  • ¼ cups Grated Or Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 375 F.

Combine flours, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar, oil and water. Mix well and if your dough is too dry or not coming together, add an additional tablespoon of water.

Bring the dough onto a lightly floured surface and press it out into your desired thickness and mold it into the shape of a heart with your hands. Or feel free to just round it if the occasion isn’t Valentine’s Day. Once the dough is shaped place it on a large, flat baking sheet. Put it into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and spread the mayo evenly over the entire crust. Sprinkle crust with pepper and salt. Place the thin slices of mozzarella cheese over the pizza (you may use shredded mozzarella if you prefer). Spread half of the pesto evenly over the pizza. Top with fresh spinach, ripping it as you place it on the pizza. The spinach is going to be heaping and look like too much for the pizza, but don’t worry it will cook down. Take the remaining half of the pesto and drop small spoonfuls of pesto on the spinach. Top with Parmesan cheese.

Return the pizza to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to sit for a minute or two before cutting it. Serve hot and enjoy.
