If your house is anything like mine, children and vegetables
don't mix very well. It's always a challenge to make sure they get enough vegetable portions each day. Well, since pizza and children do
mix well, here's a recipe to help with the veggies.
Spinach Mushroom Pizza
Bring on those veggies!
I like to make homemade pizza dough using my bread machine (the kids really like it). Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try:
Pizza Dough (for 1 pizza)
• 2/3 cup warm water • 1 Tbsp oil • 1 tsp honey • 1 tsp salt • 1 Tbsp cornmeal • 1¾ cups flour
• ½ tsp baking powder • ¼ tsp garlic salt or powder • ½ tsp Italian seasoning • 1 tsp yeast Add ingredients in order to bread machine and run 'Dough' mode. When finished, place in a greased 9x13 pan and pre-bake for about 5 minutes. The olive and sesame oil work well on this pizza. I thought that a white pizza sauce would go well with the spinach and mushrooms in place of the oils. Either one works great! White Pizza Sauce (for 1 pizza)
• 1 Tbsp butter (1 Tbsp butter powder
, 1 Tbsp water) • 1½ Tbsp flour • ½ cup powdered milk, reconstituted • 1 tsp garlic powder or salt • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese • salt and pepper to taste Heat butter in a saucepan. Whisk in flour and mix well. Add milk. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a slow boil. Remove from heat and give it about 5 minutes to thicken.
Mushrooms, Cheese and Spinach
You can add more or less spinach according to your tastes
