Even though summer is winding down in many places, and everyone is embracing fall and all things pumpkin, here in AZ its still 100+ everyday. So, because of that, I am going to share with you one of my favorite summer recipes. Yes, another salad. But this one is extra delicious because it is in pizza form.
This is a perfect dinner for a warm (or hot) night. Pair it with a grilled chicken breast and you have yourself a nice full meal.
To start you are going to need, pizza dough (I usually save time and buy premade dough from the store) baby spinach, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, purple onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, olive oil, and a lemon.
To make the pizza roll out your pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Once you have it rolled out you can transfer it to a baking sheet and then use about a tablespoon of olive oil to spread over the top of the pizza dough. Before placing it in the oven, sprinkle some of your feta cheese over the top of the pizza. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until crust is golden.
While the dough is cooking go ahead and cut up all of the salad ingredients.
I use about two cups of the baby spinach, half a jar of the kalamata olives, half of a purple onion diced, one cucumber diced, a large handful of the cherry tomatoes, and about a cup of feta cheese.
Once all of the salad ingredients are combined set aside and make your dressing.
For the dressing I use about a quarter cup of olive oil and the juice of half a lemon. Mix that together really well and add a few cracks of fresh pepper and a little salt.
Once the dressing is made go ahead and dress the salad.
Combine the salad together really well and top the flatbread pizza with it once it is done cooking.
This is a very simple recipe that makes a big impression. You can serve this as a light lunch, appetizer, or pair with a grilled chicken breast for a full meal. Enjoy!
