3 healthy spinach pizza options to make for dinner tonight

Pizza is perfect for serving at a celebration, a family dinner, or just as a snack among friends. It comes in many shapes and sizes and with thousands of combinations of toppings. Some people might doubt its nutritional value, but if you eat spinach pizza, you can have the fun and taste of it with a lot less guilt.

Nutritional profile

  • Spinach is packed with iron, but it's also high in vitamins A, B9, and K, magnesium and manganese, and antioxidants.
  • Spinach is low in calories, too; a cup of raw spinach has as little as seven calories. A cup of boiled and drained spinach has only about 44 calories.
  • The cooked spinach provides more vitamins and minerals per portion than raw, but both are exceptionally good for you.

Mediterranean flavour

Spinach is a staple in many types of international cuisine. Raw spinach leaves are tender and delicious in salads, and boiled, steamed, or sautéed spinach makes a great vegetable side dish. It's perfect in sauces, quiches, pasta, and much more. Feel free to use your imagination with this versatile veggie.

Luckily, it's taking off in popularity as a pizza topping. Not only does spinach taste great, it adds considerable nutrition to your pie. Pair it with tomatoes, feta cheese, and onions and it’ll be as though you’ve got a first class ticket to Greece.

Here are some great ways to adapt your spinach pizza:

  1. Use a thin crust, Alfredo sauce, spinach, and Swiss cheese.
  2. Try a traditional crust, tomato sauce, pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, spinach and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Order a deep-dish pan-pizza crust with rosé sauce, onions, spinach, and Swiss cheese.
