Ingredients
For the Pesto:
  • 3 cups loosely packed spinach
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup walnuts or pine nuts
  • ⅓ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
For the Pizzas:
  • 4 whole grain lavash or other flatbread (I used two 8x10-inch rectangular lavash)*
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1½ cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Make the pesto:
  1. Place all pesto ingredients except olive oil in the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped. With the processor running, add the oil in a steady stream through the feed tube and process until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Make the pizzas:
  1. Place lavash on parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread with pesto sauce. Sprinkle on chopped spinach and mozzarella cheese. Top with tomatoes, grated Parmesan, and pine nuts.
  2. Bake pizzas for 8-9 minutes, until cheese and flatbread are lightly golden. If you are using more than one pan, rotate halfway through baking time.
*You can use whole wheat pita bread in place of the lavash.
