Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 cups lightly packed shredded spinach (1/2 a 10 oz/284 g pkg)
  • 1 1/2 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Method

In large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, 8 minutes. Drain off fat.

Add onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5 minutes.

Add spinach and pizza sauce; stir until spinach wilts slightly, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

On floured surface, roll out dough into 12-inch (30 cm) circle. Transfer to greased pizza pan. Spread beef mixture over dough right to edge. Sprinkle with mozzarella and feta cheeses. Bake in bottom third of 500°F (260°C) oven until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly, about 10 minutes.
