GREEK PIZZA WITH SPINACH, FETA CHEESE, AND ROSEMARY

Fields of Greens: New Vegetarian Recipes From The Celebrated Greens Restaurant by Anne Somerville

The flavors of this pizza are bold, and each ingredient adds its own distinctive taste. The spinach is quickly wilted, then feta cheese, Greek olives, and fresh rosemary are sprinkled over; a little lemon zest is added to lighten the intense flavors. You can substitute chard for the spinach; just be sure it's tender and well seasoned.

INGREDIENTS

    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 medium-size red onion, thinly sliced
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 large bunch of spinach, stems removed and leaves washed, 8 to 10 cups
    • 1 teaspoon minced lemon zest
    • Pizza Dough, ready to rollout
    • Garlic Oil
    • 6 Kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
    • 3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled, about 1½ cups

    • 1/2  ounce Parmesan cheese, grated, about 3 tablespoons
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a saute pan. Add the red onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a few pinches of pepper; saute over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, until tender. Add half of the garlic and saute for i minute. Transfer to a bowl.

Heat the remaining teaspoon of olive oil in the pan. Wilt the spinach over high heat with 1/4 teaspoon salt, a few pinches of pepper, and the remaining garlic.
