My family loves homemade pizza, but it’s not typically a 30 minute meal when you factor in the time to make the pizza dough.

To get these pizzas with spinach pesto and tomato on the table quickly, I used whole wheat flatbreads from the grocery store. The ingredient list on the flatbreads was short and contained only recognizable ingredients, so I felt comfortable going the store-bought route this time. Check the labels at your grocery store to make sure they fit your family’s nutritional goals. Whole wheat pita bread is a great substitute.

I mixed up a quick spinach pesto in my food processor to use as the pizza sauce. The pesto adds lots of flavor for minimal effort! A little more chopped fresh spinach, some cheese, cherry tomatoes, and a few pine nuts round out the pizza toppings. I love the pine nuts for the flavor and crunch they add to these pizzas. If you’re not a fan of fresh tomatoes (like my husband), mushrooms also work well with the spinach and pesto flavors.

We made these Spinach Pesto Pizzas two days in a row – first for dinner and then the next day for lunch. They are that good and that easy! Mix up a big veggie-filled salad while the pizzas cook, and dinner is done!

Ingredients

For the Pesto:

  • 3 cups loosely packed spinach
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup walnuts or pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 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)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Make the pesto:

  • 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.

Notes

*You can use whole wheat pita bread in place of the lavash.
