Pizza Recipes from AlansKitchen.comMakes 4 servings (2 slices each)
Prep Time: 10 min
Baking Time: 20 min


  • Olive Oil No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 - small onion, chopped (1 small = about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 - cloves garlic, minced (4 cloves = about 2 tsp)
  • 1 - package (10 oz each) fresh spinach, stems removed, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 - teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 - teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 - prepared pizza crust (12 inch)
  • 1 - cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided (1 cup = 4 oz)
  • 3/4 - cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 - cup grated Parmesan cheese (1/4 cup = 1 oz)


Preheat oven to 450F. Spray large saucepan evenly with cooking spray.

  1. To saucepan, add onions and garlic.
  2. Cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, or until onions are crisp-tender, stirring frequently.
  3. Add spinach, salt and crushed red pepper. Stir.
  4. Cook 2 minutes, or until spinach is wilted and mixture is fairly dry, stirring occasionally.
  5. Place crust on baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese over crust. Top with spinach mixture.
  7. In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, the ricotta cheese and Parmesan cheese until well blended.
  8. Spoon evenly over pizza. (Spinach will not be completely covered.)
  9. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown. Cut into 8 slices to serve.

Alan's Kitchen Tip: Great Substitute:

  • Substitute: 1 can (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust for the prepared pizza crust. Unroll dough on baking sheet; press into 12-inch circle. Top with ingredients as directed, then bake at 425F for 15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
  • Make it Easy: Substitute 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained, for the cut-up fresh spinach. Cook with the onion until liquid is evaporated.
