Spinach Crust Pizza

2 cups raw spinach leaves
1 egg (large)
1 cup shredded Kraft Italiano cheese blend
spices (I used salt, pepper, and seasoning salt – a sprinkle of each)

Pre-heat oven to 425. Line a 12 inch pizza pan with parchment paper (Definitely do this. DO NOT skip the parchment paper. I found that where the crust touched the pan it stuck horribly! It peels off the paper no problem.). Set aside.

In a blender (or magic bullet), blend spinach until it is a baby food consistency. Add egg and pulse until combined. Add in cheese and spices and pulse until just combined.

Spread evenly in prepared pizza pan. (If you are like me you are going to think there is no way there is enough to cover a pizza pan. There is. Just spread it out slowly and carefully and it will get there!)

Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes. Edges will be browned and crispy.

Spread your sauce on, add toppings and cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.

IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that since the crust is pre-cooked, any toppings used must be pre-cooked as well.
