Whether we like it or not pizza is the great American food. Pies, slices, rolls what ever your prefered method pizza is delicious! And let’s be honest my family eats pizza in some form about once a week. If it’s a busy week we might have it more than once. And sometimes for simplicity we will order a large pie and enjoy the left overs for days. Shhhh…don’t tell anyone that’s my secret 😉
Although lately I’ve grown tired of regular pie and have been looking to spice up our pizza nights. My kids like cheese and I’m in love with garlic and somewhere it’s gotten bored and old. If your pizza nights have gotten boring shake them up with Spinach Tomato Feta Pizza! With this recipe I’m mixing dill, basil and feta to give our pizza night a Mediterranean feel.
RedPack sent me this amazing package of tomato goodies last week. After that I was fixated on how to best use the tomatoes they had sent. And PIZZA night was coming so of course it made sense to create a pizza around these tomatoes.
Red Pack also sent me along some great recipe ideas that got me thinking. And you know I’m no stranger to thinking about how to use Red Pack Tomatoes. But just in case you need some ideas they have a website FULL of recipe ideas. They even have a talk tomato club you can join….these people are serious about tomatoes!
Also how useful is this magnet? I’m always wondering in the kitchen what equals what THANK YOU RED PACK! It made my day.
Getting back to that delicious pizza! This basis for the pizza is a Feta spread that gives it a creamy base without using a traditional pizza sauce.
- 8oz Reduced Fat Cream Cheese soften
- 1 cup feta crumbled cheese
- 1 tablespoon basil (fresh if you have it!)
- 2 teaspoons dill
Mix until a creamy spread. Please note the above picture isn’t completely mixed, it will appear more white than this.
Spread a thin layer on your pizza crust. Please note I’m using two different crusts in these demonstration photos one is a store-bought pre-made the other is a home-made cauliflower crust. How do you make a cauliflower crust you ask? It’s actually much easier than I expected it to be and pretty tasty too. If you are on a Gluten free or Paleo diet this is a great alternative to pizza dough.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust:
- 1 head of Cauliflower riced
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 2 teaspoons dried Parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried Oregano
Add your spinach then layer on top your amazing RED PACK diced tomatoes.
And top with some fresh mozzarella cheese I’m also using a little shredded cheddar…yummmm.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and enjoy!
