Mediterranean Pizza
Serves: 4
1-2 tbsp organic cornmeal, for the baking sheet
4 cup (packed) shredded spinach
(about 5 ounces)
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
Whole-wheat four, for work surface
1 lb whole-wheat pizza dough,
thawed if frozen
4 plum tomatoes
1 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh basil,
marjoram or oregano leaves
small red onion, thinly sliced
/3 cup crumbled vegan feta cheese
cup pitted Kalamata olives,
coarsely chopped
tsp ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450F. Spread the cornmeal on a large baking sheet; alternatively, rub a large baking sheet with
oil. Place the spinach with the rinse water still clinging to the leaves in a microwave-safe bowl with a lid. If the leaves are
completely dry, add a teaspoon of water. Cover and microwave on high until the spinach is bright green and wilted,
about 1 minute. Transfer to a strainer and rinse with cold water. When cool enough to handle, wrap the leaves in a
clean kitchen towel and squeeze out all of the excess liquid. Remove the spinach from the towel, using your fngers to
loosen and separate the leaves. Set aside.
On a lightly foured work surface, use a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch the dough to a roughly 10- by-14
inch rectangle; if the dough becomes so elastic that after it is rolled it just snaps back, contracting to its original size, let
it rest a few minutes before continuing to roll. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the dough with 1
teaspoon of the olive oil. Arrange the tomatoes on the dough and sprinkle the marjoram, basil and/or oregano over the
tomatoes. Spread the spinach on top, followed by the red onion, feta, olives, and black pepper. Drizzle the remaining 2
teaspoons olive oil over the pie. Bake until the crust is golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
