Popeye Pizza

I’ve had one of those weeks this week, if you want to read more about it visit my blog at:

By Friday night I didn’t feel much like cooking so I made this, cuts all the corners, easy-peasy pizza. The only veggies I needed to chop were garlic, mushrooms and some oregano. Believe me, you can make this pizza in not much more time than it takes the pizza delivery guy to get to your house. Not that we can get delivery here in the back of beyond, but we're not complaining, this tastes so much better than anything you can buy.

Popeye Pizza


1 refrigerated regular pizza crust
1/3 jar Ragu pizza sauce
1 8-ounce package shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
A generous dash fresh ground black pepper
½ tablespoon butter
1 9-ounce package spinach
5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
6 ounces mushrooms, sliced.

  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F
  • Top pizza crust with sauce, sprinkle with oregano and black pepper. Add half the cheese and a layer of mushrooms.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over a medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add spinach and toss with garlic until spinach wilts.
  • Add spinach and garlic mixture to pizza crust, top with remaining mozzarella, and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Oh, yummy! We love homemade pizza, and I am always trying out different toppings. DS would like this, as the picky git loves mushrooms and spinach (one of the few green vegs I can stuff down him). I make a whole wheat pizza dough that I will get around to posting some time soon. that would be fantastic with this! Thanks, Jan! Hope this week is better.

Thanks, Raquel. I'm sure even the 'picky git' will like this. :-)
I'll look forward to seeing your pizza dough recipe.

Thanks for the concern! How are you doing? My dad's in OK for business.
Have you had any tornadoes? Sirens have been going off for the last 30 minutes, but have finally stopped. Everything appears to be okay...for now.
