Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1 (16oz) package Olivia's Organics Baby Spinach
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough
  • 1 cup feta cheese - crumbled
  • 1 egg - whisked
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic and stir for one minute. Begin adding the spinach a little at a time while stirring. It will wilt quickly. Stir in red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, remove from heat and cool. Once cooled, place in a dish towel and squeeze out as much water as you can while wringing tight. Set aside.

Cut pizza dough in half. With a little flour on the surface, roll out pizza dough into a large circle. Top with half of the spinach mixture covering all around while leaving an inch on the outside. Add half of the feta cheese over spinach.

Roll up from the short side working to get the seam over the top tucking it under. Pinch sides to seal. Brush with egg and top with sesame seeds.

Repeat with other half of the dough and spinach mixture and place both on an ungreased baking sheet pan.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice and serve.
