Spinach Tomato-Basil Pizza

Today I decided to do a little experimentin’ and came up with this yummy treat for the fam’s dinner.
Truth be told, this Spinach Tomato-Basil Pizza is a bit of a departure from my “what I’m known for” Deep Dish Pizza
However, we LOVED it– and it will definitely be making reappearances in our menu… just sayin’
I started out by preparing the dough… My secret family recipe has 2 ingredients… Jiffy and Hot Water…

Now, in future versions of this pie, I am going to give cast iron skillet broiling a try, but tonight I just needed to get ‘er done…so I threw the dough into my jelly roll pan.

Then I quickly pricked it with a fork…

And popped it in the oven for 3-5 minutes, just to get the crust puffy.

Then I sauced things up with this amazing squeezable pizza sauce bottle…

Genius! This company total gets me…
Then I snipped up a couple basil leaves on top of the sauce…

Then I shredded some Havarti cheese (available at Aldi’s) on top… You can use whatever you have on hand…

Then I grabbed some freshly clean spinach…

And cut it up and threw on top…

When working with spinach and herbs, a lot times I skip my knives and just use my kitchen shears to cut things up right on the spot.

I then sliced up 4 tomatoes and placed them on top…

Then the MOST important step, season well with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper… it makes all the difference.

Then I sliced up a ball of fresh mozzarella (also available at Aldi’s) and dotted the top of my pizza.

I baked her up at 425 degrees until my crust was golden and my cheese was bubbly.

Then I stepped back because Puddie was armed and dangerous!
It was truly fantastic. So yummy!
