This is the recipe I've created after eating Applebee's pizza appetizer. I
mixed the ingredients ahead of time while cooking other items, then all I
had to was split the bread open, put the toppings on and bake!
Pita Bread (2 or 3 whole)
1 - 10oz pkg frozen spinach
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 med. onion
5 or 6 plum tomatoes
8 oz pkg fresh mushrooms
3-4 cloves garlic
1 tsp of each of the following spices:
basil, parsley, cayenne pepper
1/2 to 1 cup rice milk
4 tbsp flour
Thaw spinach completely, press out all water. Heat milk in saucepan, when
hot but not boiling stir in flour. Stir until sauce begins to thicken, turn
heat down. Add nutritional yeast and spinach. Stir constantly until thick
and gooey, only about 3-4 min.
In separate pan, saute onion, garlic, until onion is tender. Stir in
tomatoes, mushrooms, and spices. Saute until just done. Preheat oven to
425. Using a very sharp bread knife, split each pita bread so that you have
two round flat pieces instead of one thick one. Place each piece of bread
on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread spinach sauce over each. Top with
tomato mixture, being careful to avoid the juice. Bake for 5 to 7 min.
Watch closely so that the edges of the pita don't burn. Makes a nice
crunchy crust. This made enough for 5 individual pizzas. Sorry, I don't
have nutritional info.
