This turned out really good, except next time I am going to use a different pizza crust. Used one of those refrigerated pizza doughs and it got kind of soggy on me, but it could also be because I sauted the spinach and added it with the tomatoes. I also added mushrooms. I will make it again, just use a Boboli crust instead.
Spinach and Onion Pizza
You'll use the tomatoes reserved from Braised Pork with Slow-Cooked Collards, Grits, and Tomato Gravy here. Purchase one pound of pizza dough and use most of it here; the rest becomes grilled flatbreads for Red Lentil Dal with Carrot Salad and Coriander Flatbreads.
