I also love to put ground beef in my pasta recipes like lasagna or bolognese sauce but I mean, these really aren't huge quantities of meat we're talking here. We do however know that we should be eating more veggies so in an effort to increase our veggies in an appetizing way, I thought I'd try adding some baby spinach and arugula on my pizza.
I made the dough in the same way as my first pizza post so you can find my dough recipe here.
When the dough was ready I stretched it out onto a baking sheet and if you find it difficult to stretch it out, just be patient with it and use your finger tips to gently press it out. Leave it sit for a bit (maybe 2 minutes) and stretch it out some more. It takes a little bit of patience, but I promise it will stay put eventually! LOL.
I layered a good amount of pesto sauce on the pizza like so...
And baked it in the oven for about 10 minutes. I then removed the pizza and placed some mozzarella cheese on top and put it back into the oven for another 5 minutes or until the crust starts to brown.
Now you can prepare your spinach and arugula. I used a mixed green salad which included spinach and arugula as well as Valerian greens (which I can't get enough of by the way)! I washed the mixed salad well and tossed it with some olive oil and freshly shredded Parmesan cheese, not thinly grated as you would put over pasta but shredded thick. Add some salt to your liking to the mix.
I placed it on top of the pizza and served it. I loved this because it was very filling and if you like mixed salads you're sure to love this. I hope you'll try it out and let me know.
