I am VERY hard to impress with anything called "pizza". If there's anything in this world I could be considered a snob about, it is my pizza. Sure, a frozen cardboard like object with cheese on it coming out of the freezer was on my plate plenty of times, much to my dismay, but I didn't get all *YAY* PIZZA like I would from a great slice.
One day, while looking for a good low carb pizza recipe, I put in pizza on Your Lighter Side's web page, and of course, Jamie's amazing cauliflower recipe came up, but then there was this other one. A pizza made with a spinach crust! Of course it got my attention right away, since it is way lower in carbs, and it's so simple! I just had to try it. Out came the trusty food processor, and within minutes, my crust was going in the oven. I was skeptical, okay, kind of afraid of what it would come out like. Sometimes taking a chance on a recipe can be so exciting!
Boy am I glad I took a chance on this one! In just a few easy steps, and a few minutes in the oven, I had pizza that was absolutely delightful! I couldn't believe how little attention this pizza has received! The best tip I can give you for this recipe is to make it a little smaller in diameter for hand-holdable slices. I push it out to about a ten inch crust. Since it's so crazy easy to make these, I always make a bunch at a time, and freeze them so that when the pizza monster comes for a visit, and I'm all out of spinach, I have them ready and at my fingertips! I just bake them for a few minutes from frozen until it's warmed through and kind of melty, then put my toppings on just like I had made it right then and there.
Everyone I've shared this recipe with, and slices of the actual pizza, has loved it! Visit Your Lighter Side - Spinach Crust Pizza for the full recipe. Enjoy!
