Although, we are on summer vacation, I decided to go into work today, to go through some new books, for my class. I spent a few hours there, went shopping and came home exhausted. I am not used to putting in the work time, I guess.
I really didn’t want to cook and checked out the refrigerator. I found some leftovers which I planned to let hubby have. The light went on and I remembered the mini gluten-free pizza crusts, I had gotten, last week. Why have leftovers when we can have Three Cheese White Pizza with Spinach? How foolish would that be? Nothing much easier than pizza when the crust is already made……
I had printed up a recipe from Brenda’s Canadian Kitchen which she just posted, yesterday. You should go over there and see her photo of a whole pizza opposed to my minis. She has a lot of good recipes to check out, as well. The original recipe came from Cooking Light, June 2012.
I almost always have fresh baby spinach, in the house, but today, I didn’t so I used frozen. It probably, is not as good, but the frozen did a great job of subbing for the fresh vegetable and was delicious.
Three-Cheese White Pizza with Spinach (adapted)
4 mini gluten-free pizza rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large shallots, sliced
2 cups baby spinach or 4 cups frozen spinach
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
2 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup)
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
On a baking sheet, lay out mini pizzas.
Place shallots in olive oil in a large skillet. Heat over medium-high heat 1 1/2 minutes. Add 4 cups spinach; saute 2 minutes. Set aside.
Combine cheeses in a bowl.
Spread cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Bake at 500° for 10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is lightly browned.
Top with spinach; bake an additional 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from oven and take a big bite.
