His & Hers Pizza

Pizza is a common staple in or house. Whether we make it ourselves or dine out at our favorite pizzeria, it’s a once a week event. As delicious as eating pizza is, deciding on the flavors can be a challenge… especially when cheese pizza always seems to win.

So we’ve learned to compromise. A pizza truce, so to speak. Splitting the pie right down the middle to please each tasty palate. The result: his margarita and hers pesto, spinach and mozzarella.  The pairing is a match made in pizza heaven.

Pizza His & Hers

Here’s what you need:

1 Pizza Dough – store bought (I have made Bobby Flay’s before and it’s amazing)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 bunch of fresh basil

1/2 cup tomato sauce

1/2 cup fresh or sautéed spinach

1/4 cup pesto

1 cup sliced mozzarella

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

Preparing pizza:

Position oven rack in the center and preheat to 500 degrees

Roll out pizza dough into a rectangular shape. Transfer the dough to 17″ x 11″ baking sheet.

Drizzle both sides of the dough with olive oil and spread throughout. Then sprinkle both sides with the shredded mozzarella.

The Margarita side: add the tomato sauce, basil leaves and fresh mozzarella.

The Pesto & Spinach side: add pesto, spinach and mozzarella.

Place in oven and bake the pizza until the crust is crisp and brown on the bottom, and the cheese is melted on top – about 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
