Homemade Pizza

O.K. this is not my pizza, because I forgot to snap mine. Close enough, just picture caramelized red onions on top! YUMMY! This was so good that I cannot wait to make it again. Very easy too. My son asked me where I got the recipe, I laughed and said, from my head. He didn't believe me. Give it a try, you will thank me.

Ronda's Homemade Bodacious Spinach Pizza


~Olive oil
~Garlic, 1 clove
~Medium red onion, thinly sliced
~2 Portabella mushroom caps (large), roughly chopped
~Bag of organic baby spinach
~Balsamic vinegar
~1 or 2 Plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
~Ball of fresh mozzarella, sliced
~Parmesan cheese for topping

1. Saute red onion and mushrooms briefly (about 2 minutes) in olive oil, then add about 2 TBSP. balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper & a pinch of sugar and stir. Add baby spinach, turn off heat, and stir until just wilted. Set aside.

2. Brush pizza dough with olive oil and fresh garlic.

3. Place fresh sliced mozzarella all around crust, then scatter tomatoes all around on top of cheese. Add a little salt to tomatoes.

4. Spoon spinach-mushroom-onion mixture all around pizza. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

5. Bake @ 450 for about 10-12 minutes, or until mozzarella is bubbling.


I know I have a lot of catching up to do. Will do my visiting this evening. Praise the Lord and pass the meat sauce, my husband is going on his annual opening trout season fishing trip. No hard labor for me the next few days!! I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Holy weekend!
