A pizza with spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and cheese.
  • 1 (12 inch) uncooked pizza crust
  • 6 oz. shredded mozzaella cheese
  • 1 c. chopped ham or Canadian bacon
  • 14 oz. can Italian tomato(es)
  • 1/2 bunch washed spinach
  • 1 c. (preferably florets) broccoli
  • 3 thinly sliced cloves garlic
  • 1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
Spread dough in a greased deep-dish pan and up the sides. Pre-bake the crust for 4 minutes. Meanwhile, drain tomatoes, seed and cut into chunks. Wash and remove stems from spinach and stir fry lightly to wilt the spinach. Steam broccoli for 3 minutes to soften it. Put most of the mozzarella on the crust, followed by the tomatoes, spinach, broccoli and garlic. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and the Parmesan on top and bake in preheated 450 degree oven on lower rack or directly on the pizza stone for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from pan and cool 5 minutes on a wire rack before cutting and serving.
