Greek Pizza

Greek Pizza, I love this recipe, light and delicious, chock full of healthy greens, tomatoes, and fat free feta. I came up with this one night for a fast, easy meal as an alternative to the traditional pie (which I also make, just for some variety). The following recipe will top one 12" crust or artisan bread.
You will Need:

Pizza Crusts - I buy anything on sale
3 Plum tomatoes - sliced
4 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
Fat Free Feta
Capers
1 Medium Onion - Sliced
2 Cloves Garlic - Sliced
Olive Oil
Greek Olives - Optional

Pre-heat your oven to 425

In a saute pan I coat the bottom with a swirl of olive oil, add sliced onion and sliced garlic, saute until transparent. Add 1/2 jar of drained capers (love the flavor) and stir, add the baby spinach and stir to coat, the spinach wilts rapidly, so stir to coat with oil and then remove from heat.

Lightly drizzle the pizza crust with olive oil, lay out your tomato slices, spoon the spinach mixture over the crust and top with crumbled feta cheese. You can add sliced greek olives if you like at this point. Reduce your oven temp to 400 and pop the pizza in on a baking tray or pizza stone. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes, or until the crust gets lightly browned on the edges. Remove, slice and enjoy! This spinach topping is also excellent over baked salmon, the capers just give it such a wonderful flavor.
