Easy Gourmet Tomato & Spinach Pizza


  • Pre-made gourmet pizza crust (8-9”)
  • Small jar of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 1 to 2 cups shredded Pizzarella (classic or mixed with any Pizzarella flavors)
  • Fresh tomato, washed and sliced thin
  • Fresh spinach, washed and dried
  • Italian herbs and spices (Italian Seasoning works well)

Follow directions on packaged gourmet pizza crust with regard to pre-baking and baking temperature.  If this is not provided, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cover the crust with a layer of pizza sauce and season as desired.  Sprinkle a light layer of Pizzarella on top of sauce layer.  For prettiest presentation, place four slices of tomato symmetrically on top of the first cheese layer.  Arrange spinach leaves in a crisscross pattern to complement to tomato placement. Lightly sprinkle with additional Pizzarella and top with light Italian seasoning.

Bake in pre-heated over per crust directions or until cheese and toppings are very lightly browned (about 12 minutes in most cases).  Cool slightly, cut and enjoy with your favorite red wine.
