Spinach Pesto Pizza

Pizza is one of my favorite foods and I love how you can cater it to specific preferences to make people feel special!  For example, I am a big pesto fan and use it instead of the traditional red sauce.  Feel free to make your own dough, but I buy it from Bertuccis.  Whole Foods also has pre-made pizza dough or you could try your local pizzeria.

Spinach Pesto Pizza (1 serving)

ball of dough to form 8 in pizza

1 tablespoon pesto

1-2 oz. feta cheese

1/2 cup spinach

4 kalamata olives pitted, roughly chopped

flour for dusting

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Using your fingertips spread the dough onto a baking sheet until you reach desired thickness.  I found sprinkling flour on the dough as well as the sheet helps.

Spread the pesto over the dough.  Add the spinach.  Sprinkle on the olives and cheese.

Bake until the crust is golden brown and the dough is cooked through.  It took me around 15-20 minutes.
