Tomato Caramelized Onion and Spinach Pizza (Recipe ReDux)
There are two types of pizza: adult pizza and kid pizza. I’m guessing you know which one is which.
While kid pizza is not limited to only children, it is the kind most eight year-old’s will reach for. Thick, fluffy crust, tomato sauce, and melty cheese to top it all off. Maybe some sort of meat on top.
Then there’s adult pizza, the type that I love. All bets are off when it comes to adult pizza. One can throw pretty much whatever they want on top and no one will question it. Lemons, beans, squash; it’s all fair game.
The pizza I’m sharing today is a mix of the two primary types of pizza. It’s not super crazy, but it isn’t your average cheese pizza either.
You start with some caramelized onions. OK, a lot of caramelized onions. Once they’re all golden and delicious, stir in some marinara sauce and coat the onions with it. That’s gonna be the first layer of your pizza.
Next comes baby spinach. Nothing fancy, just lay it down in a thick layer covering the onions. Don’t worry about there being too much because it’s gonna shrink down a ton in the oven.
Finally, top your pizza with fresh mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes. Perfect! This pizza is simple, but delicious, and you’re going to love it!
Tomato Caramelized Onion and Spinach Pizza
1 pizza crust of choice (I used store bought, but you can make your own)
2 onions, chopped
marinara sauce of choice (either store bought or homemade is fine)
sun dried tomatoes, packed in oil
Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add some olive oil to a pan and add chopped onions. Caramelize onions; if you don’t know how, check out these directions. Add marinara sauce and mix to coat onions. Place pizza crust (pre-baked, if homemade) in prepared pan. Arrange onions in an even layer on top of crust. Add a layer of spinach, and top that with a generous amount of fresh mozzarella. Lastly, evenly distribute sun dried tomatoes on top. Bake in preheated for 15 minutes, until cheese has melted. Slice and enjoy!
