Today's Meatless Monday recipe couldn't be easier...Veggie Pesto Pizza. The Mr. was away on business, no doubt enjoying a steak dinner while out of my Eagle-like gaze, so I decided to do something quick and easy for dinner for daughter no. 1, Meg, and myself.
I'm not one of those people who makes my own dough....uh....no thank you. I use Mama Mary's Whole Wheat pizza crusts, but feel free to use whichever brand you like, unless of course you want to be Martha Stewart and make your own. Puhleeeeeeze.
I love the fact that this pizza isn't tomato sauce based. Now, I love me some tomato sauce, but pesto, well I'd eat a ratty old shoe if it had pesto slopped all over it....and if you add feta cheese on top of that, well, I'm like a pig in slop. Okay, bad visual, but you get the idea.
Here's what you need.
Basil Pesto (comes in a jar or you can make your own)
Frozen Spinach (thawed, cooked and drained completely of water)
red onion - chopped
tomatoes - chopped
marinated artichoke hearts - chopped
Generously spread pesto on the crust...generously...
including lots of the oil.
Then add spinach, tomatoes, onions and all cheeses.
