I love, love, love Christmas! Even when I was a kid I would save all my lunch money for the whole year to be able to buy Christmas presents. I have never cared much about what I receive, but nothing makes me happier than finding that perfect gift for someone. I start shopping in the summer when I take my first international trip in June, picking up cool jewelry and coffee and storing it under my bed to be joined along with many other gifts collected over the next six months.
This time of year is also insane-bustling about, making sure that everyone is thought of, considered. –Cooking up food for gifts, for parties, and preparing for hosting the Christmas Eve celebration.
So in between all of those events, I need simple-As simple as it gets.
And that’s why on a busy weekend night, when Andy was traveling to boot, I created this Chicken and Spinach Pizza for my boys.
I know, you see a lot of pizzas from me, but isn’t it a great testament that you can still eat pizza and be healthy?!
Here’s What You Need:
1 already made pizza crust (Very thin crust)
Handful of baby spinach cut into strips
2 Chicken and Spinach Sausages, sliced (I prefer organic but Target has a good one too)
½ tsp Penzey’s chip and dip seasoning*
¼ tsp minced garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
4 Cheese Italian Blend shredded cheese
Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 450 Mix approx. 2-2.5 TBS of extra virgin olive oil with the minced garlic and the seasoning. Spread over the pizza crust. Top with spinach and then the sausages as well as a light sprinkling of 4 Cheese Italian Blend shredded cheese. Bake for about 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
*Feel free to sub in another spice if you don’t have this one on hand.
See this pic? My kids liked it –chicken, spinach, and all!
