Monster (Spinach) Pizza

Monster Pizza

Who knew that spinach pizza would be a family favorite? When Monster Pizza is on the agenda, both kids want to help. G-man adds the ingredients together to make the crust. While the yeast is waking up in the sugar water, he cheerfully makes paw prints in the flour. The Cadet likes to press "play" on the blender. By the time the meal is over, they have Monster Pizza sauce smeared all over their grins and from foreheads to chins. 

1 8oz can salt-free tomato sauce or home made tomato sauce
1/2 package frozen spinach 
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp lite salt (optional)

1/4  pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 pound cheddar cheese, shredded
parmesan cheese

sliced mushrooms (if you can get away with it)

Prepare pizza crust and allow to rise while you prepare the sauce:

Cook spinach in the microwave until tender. Pop in into the blender with tomato sauce and garlic. Puree until liquid. Spread lukewarm sauce over the crust, and top with cheese and mushrooms. 

Bake for 15-17 minutes @400F  Sprinkle with parmesan before serving.

After you have made it a few times with only half a package of spinach, try using a whole package. More vegetables is a good thing.
