Spinach & Ricotta Pizza. That's amore.

Ciao!
It's only appropriate to greet y'all in Italian, right?

It's Week #3 of my Food Challenge with my Sis!

Last night, it was Spinach & Ricotta Pizza for dinner.
 











Scrum-dilly-umptious!
I've always opted for the traditional pizza.
Y'know, the usual toppings: cheese & pepperoni, but since my Sis and I have started our weekly Food Challenge, I've been choosing recipes that I wouldn't normally make or even eat! I let my husband decide this week's challenge. I gave him 3 choices. He's a man who loves pizza so I don't even know why I bothered to ask him. I mean, really, why would he choose Pasta alla Carbonara or Fettuccine with Fresh Asparagus and Pancetta over Pizza?

Glad he went with this one because it is A-MAZING!



Want to make Spinach & Ricotta Pizza, too?

What You'll Need:
1 11oz. can Pillsbury Pizza Thin Crust
1 tblspn olive oil
1 tblspn grated parmigiano reggiano**
1/4 tspn garlic powder
A pinch of salt/pepper
1/2 small red onion - thinly sliced
1 cup fresh spinach
1 cup grated mozzarella
1/2 cup ricotta
1/4 tspn red pepper flakes

**I was NOT about to pay $8+ for parmigiano reggiano just to use 1 tblspn of it, so I opted for a block of regular Parmigiano instead. $3!


Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Unroll dough and place on a pizza pan (or baking sheet).
Brush the top of the dough with olive oil.
Sprinkle evenly with parmigiano and garlic powder. Season with salt/pepper.
Top with onions, spinach and mozzarella. Drop ricotta by tablespoon. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes until golden.



Bon Appétit!

Xoxoxo.

    1. Thank you SO much for clicking on my link. That means a lot. :-) I just finished reading your latest post, Something Wicked.... I seriously LOL'd. That was sooooo funny and I related to it because I want to eat everything chocolate covered not only when I'm on my period but 2 weeks prior to me coming on my period, LOL. Cannot wait to read your blog. I'm following you too. :-)

    2. Oh, yeah, I meant to say that I couldn't comment on that post for some reason. I even subscribed to the feed. Not sure what's going on but I'll keep looking into it. Just thought I'd let you know why I commented about it here as opposed to on your page. ;-)
