Not only is pizza one of my favorite foods, but I am always looking for new, easy-to-make recipes. This flavorful recipe helps to add more veggies and variety to your child’s diet in a delicious way. Spinach is one of the healthiest vegetables around. It is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese and it’s loaded with many other vitamins and nutrients.

To make this recipe, here is what you will need:
1 naan flatbread, pita, or focaccia (for thick crust lovers)
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped finely
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
3 tbs ricotta cheese, or you can use 2oz of feta
Parmesan cheese and red peer flakes to finish, if desired
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush olive oil on top of the pita.
Note* I used a whole wheat pita, but you can use flatbread or focaccia, if you prefer.
Spread minced garlic.
Note* depending on the size of the clove of garlic, and your preference, you can use 1-2 cloves.
Top with mozzarella cheese.
Dollop with 3 spoonful’s of ricotta and bake on a baking sheet for 7-10 minutes.
Remove from oven when the cheese is melted and the crust has lightly browned.
Note*Top with parmesan and red pepper flakes, if desired.
Let cool for a moment, and serve while warm. These ingredients will make one personal size adult pizza or it can be cut into quarters for 4 smaller servings for toddlers. If you have extra, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat before serving.
