Back to recipe


  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 7-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup jarred pesto
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 green olive with pimento, cut in half (for the eyes)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups marinara sauce or your favorite tomato sauce for dipping


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Unroll dough and starting from center, press out dough to form 15x9-inch rectangle.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté until slightly browned. Add the spinach and sauté until wilted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. Spread the pesto down center of dough to within 2 1/2 inches of long sides and within 1/2-inch of short sides. Top with the spinach mixture, mozzarella and feta cheese.
  5. With a Pizza Cutter, make cuts 2 inches apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Alternately cross strips over filling.
  6. Pinch edges to seal. Brush egg over dough. Place the olives at top of dough to look like eyes.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Cut crosswise into slices and serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
