Strawberry, Spinach, Feta Pizza
You know I thought maybe this time I had done it. I thought maybe I’d created something that no one in my family wouldn’t eat but me. I quickly had my fears put at rest when my teenage daughter came around as I pulled this out of the oven. “That looks good”, she exclaimed! As soon as I had the lunches I wanted packed, and the photos I needed snapped, she promptly scoffed down some strawberry, spinach, feta pizza. I bet she didn’t even know what she was eating but she did enjoy it!
I have really been thinking a lot about the concept of sweet and savory pizzas. I spent a good deal of time researching blackberry pizza, peach pizza etc but ultimately I did what I always do, made what I thought would be the easiest, a strawberry pizza!
I started with pita pockets and bagels since I wanted to test different crusts. The photo above shows a pizza on the pita “crust” before baking. The photo below shows a pizza on bagel “crust” after baking. I would say we preferred the pita since it created a nice crispy pizza. I like to precut my pitas before putting the toppings on. It is probably not necessary but I do it out of habit I guess.
- Lightly brush your chosen crust with extra virgin olive oil
- Top with crumbled feta cheese and chopped spinach
- Layer on sliced strawberries
- Finish with seasoning of your choice, in this case I used black pepper
- Bake until crispy (the feta cheese does not really “melt”)
For lunch I packed the pizza into my Easylunchboxes container and included:
- Baby Carrots
- Cucumbers (cut with crinkle cutter see link at bottom of post)
- Fresh Strawberry garnish
