I've been experimenting with pizza toppings again. This combination includes a green sauce of pureed spinach, garlic, red pepper flakes, and olive oil, with mushrooms (and more garlic) and parmesan cheese on top.
Yes, I do like garlic. Why do you ask?
1 batch pizza dough
9-10 button mushrooms, washed and diced
16 ounces frozen spinach, thawed
5 cloves of garlic, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing
dash red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
In a medium bowl, toss the diced mushrooms with 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
In a food processor, puree the frozen spinach with 3 cloves garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 500F.
Lightly brush a baking sheet with olive oil.
Roll out pizza dough on a lightly floured surface, and transfer to the baking sheet.
Carefully spread the pureed spinach mixture over the pizza dough. Top with the mushrooms and parmesan cheese.
Bake at 500F for 6-12 minutes, monitoring carefully after the 6 minute mark.
