Spinach, Feta, and Tomato Pizza

Spinach, Feta, and Tomato Pizza

Yesterday, Mister Spice and I were out of school (work) due to snow. Snow days are lovely, but it kind of threw off my plans to have leftovers for dinner. Why, you ask? Well, it just seemed like with a whole snow day ahead of me, I could come up with something better than the leftovers we had been working on since Monday.

I decided to use up some stuff in the fridge and freezer that were about to go bad, and I only made a quick trip to the store to get one thing: a rotisserie chicken. I removed the skin and shredded it, saving some for recipes later this week. We had been talking about pizza, but we’ve also tried to eat light this week, so I came up with a healthy, tasty concoction I am deeming “Spinach, Feta, and Tomato Pizza”.  It is quite different than our Caribbean Jerk Chicken Pizza, and it goes a little something like this:

Recipe Ingredients

  • one pre-made pizza crust
  • 2 cups spinach, raw
  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup Feta cheese
  • 1 cup bacon bits (this is totally optional, but I had some cooked bacon leftover from breakfast)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (or one garlic clove, minced)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Italian seasoning of your choice (sadly, I was out of oregano and basil, but I chopped up some fresh parsley from my mother-in-law’s garden)
  • Shredded mozzarella is pictured, but I didn’t use any

ingredients

I love Boboli pre-made pizza crusts.  Not too thick or thin.  I followed the package instructions and heated the oven to 450.  In the meantime, wilt your spinach in a non-stick skillet, tossing the garlic in towards the end.  Remember, the spinach will cook down quickly.  I wish I had more to add, but this was all I had left!

Then, slice or chop the grape tomatoes and begin topping your pizza!  Start by brushing crust with olive oil, then add toppings.  Be sure to admire how pretty it is along the way.

step 6

Place in oven directly on rack for about 10 minutes.  If you don’t want your chicken to crisp up, cover with foil for the first 5 minutes.  After 10 minutes, the crust was crisp, and the toppings were nice and melty.

step 7

Slice up that pie and enjoy!  Mister Spice and I give this recipe 4/5 herbs.  I missed the sauciness of the Caribbean Jerk Pizza, but this was light, fresh, and flavorful.
