My Flavors Were Tight

I came home from soccer practice last night and threw together a little something from stuff I had laying around:

1 Boboli traditional crust

1 can tomato paste
A selection of italian-y spices
a dash of red pepper flakes

1 package frozen spinach
4 oz Feta cheese, cut into cubes
a little bermuda onion, shaved thin
a handful of shredded pizza cheese (mozzarella or a blend)

1. Preheat over to 450.
2. Pop the spinach in the microwave, set aside.
3. Mix tomato paste and spices in a bowl (makes enough sauce for two pizzas).
4. Finish cooking the spinach, squeeze all of the water out by your favorite method.
5. Put a couple of tablespoons of sauce on the Boboli, spread thin to cover.
6. Spread the spinach over the sauce.
7. Sprinkle with cubed Feta.
8. Shave some bermuda onion over the top.
9. Toss a little shredded cheese over everything.
10. Cook directly on the middle rack for about 9 to 10 minutes, until a little brown shows on the Feta cubes and the rest of the cheese is melted.

11. Tell your spinach-hating children that it's good, they should try it.

12. Watch them wolf down half a pizza each.

13. Make another.

Adam loves spinach. My dad's uncle got him to try it when he was 3 or 4 and he can't get enough of it since then. He also loves broccoli and green beans.

I got a request to buy the stuff to make it again this week.

Zoe wants to be a vegetarian, but doesn't really like vegetables. Good luck with that. I'm just glad I found a new way to get them to eat veggies.

...and another excuse to eat Feta cheese.
