You no eat MEAT? A Greek Pizza Night

Earlier this week I made a delicious hearty soup with brown rice, spinach, and chickpeas courtesy of Martha which I highly recommend.  But I ended up using a lot less of the spinach than I thought I would, and was left with almost an entire bag of the stuff!  So tonight, I made a pilgrimage to Whole Foods to get the rest of the makings of a delicious Greek pizza.  Whole Foods has great, cheap pizza dough and tonight I decided on their whole wheat version.  I know, I know, I really should make my own dough, but it’s just too easy to buy it!  Topped with feta, garlic, olive oil, sautéed spinach, and at the last minute, an egg, this was a perfect way to welcome in the weekend. It even drew Sam home from drinks with his co-workers!

Spinach & Feta Whole Wheat Pizza

Serves 2-4

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 bag spinach
4 oz. feta, diced
2 oz. mozzarella, grated
1 pre-made whole wheat pizza dough
1 egg
salt & pepper
olive oil


Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Split the dough into two halves and shape the dough into two rectangular shaped pizzas.  Drizzle each with olive oil and season with salt & pepper.  In a sauté pan, heat oil and add the garlic.  Saute the garlic for a minute and add the spinach.  Add 2 tbsp. of water and cover to steam for 3 minutes.  Uncover and sauté until the water is completely evaporated.  Set aside.  Layer the pizzas first with the mozzarella, then with the spinach, then with the feta.  Finish with salt & pepper.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese has melted and the crust is browning.  Take the pizza out and let cool.  Fry an egg, easy-side up and top the pizza with it.  


  1. That pizza looks great! Pizza is on my agenda to make tonight along with some pesto. I have never made homemade pizza dough but I heard it is pretty easy.

  2. Hi! FYI I have done this and bake the pizza with the eggs on it. Accomplishes pretty much the same thing and less clean up!


Have a comment? I'd love to hear it!
