Magnificent Greek Pizza
Recipe type: pizza
  • 1 pound fresh spinach, washed thoroughly, thicker stems removed
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 14-inch diameter pizza shell
  • ½ cup sliced and pitted brine-cured green olives
  • ¼ pound feta cheese crumbled (about 1 cup)
  1. Put spinach and water in a large pot and cook over medium-high heat, covered, until the spinach wilts.
  2. Drain the excess liquid from the pan.
  3. With the cover off, cook and stir the spinach for 2 minutes to allow more of the moisture to evaporate.
  4. Add the olive oil, garlic onion and if using them, the red pepper flakes to the spinach.
  5. Cook and stir over medium high heat for about 4 minutes.
  6. Add pepper to taste (no salt because of the feta, which can be salty).
  7. This is the prep. Hold up to three days in the cooler or use at once.
  8. To finish, spread the spinach mixture evenly over the crust.
  9. Sprinkle the olives evenly over the spinach.
  10. Sprinkle on the feta cheese.
  11. Bake.
