Some nights, you just need to assemble dinner as opposed to making dinner. This is one of those nights. Within a few minutes, I had a yummy, hearty, satisfying dinner on the table by just assembling a few simple ingredients. I added roasted chicken to my pizza but of course, you could leave it off and keep this meal vegetarian too.
Inspired by a Caprese Salad…one of my favorites, this pizza made dinner time a breeze.
1 store bought pizza crust (or use my homemade version here)
1 jar pizza sauce (it’s on the spaghetti sauce aisle)
3 cups fresh spinach leaves
1 handful of fresh basil
8 to 10 slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
1/2 pound roasted chicken breast from your deli (optional)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
On your pizza crust, layer first 5 ingredients in order given. Drizzle EVOO over top of the pizza and sprinkle S&P on top.
Bake about 12 to 16 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese bubbly.
Remove from oven, slice and serve.
That’s it! Simple! Plus, your kiddos won’t even notice the spinach underneath that fresh mozzarella.
Some days, moms just need a dinner they can assemble.
