Caramelized Onion, Spinach, & Bacon Pizza

You guys.

Hubs is out of town for a week and a half.

It’s looooong.

Not only do I miss him, but Dude and Spud take the opportunity to complain about absolutely everything I make for dinner.

It’s draining.

I had some odds and ends left over from dinner before he left, so I decided to have a make your own pizza night and make everyone happy (lies…Dude still complained that I don’t have the right cheese.  Seriously.  Apparently I don’t have pizzeria cheese magic.)

So Dude had his unsatisfactory pepperoni pizza (and eventually picked off all the cheese and ate the crust), and Spud chose cheese with no sauce (he ate his, at least), and I got to have a completely amazing artisan pizza!

Fresh mozzarella, caramelized onions, garlic sautéed spinach and BACON!  YUM!

Delicious meals like this make the time go a lot faster!

Now to figure out how to make something other than mac & cheese and pancakes for the next nine days…

Caramelized Onion, Spinach, & Bacon Pizza

Drizzle of olive oil
1 small clove garlic
Large handful fresh spinach
3 slices fresh mozzarella
1-2 slices cooked bacon, diced

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees (preferably with a pizza stone). 

Heat the oil in a skillet.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then add the spinach and remove from the heat.  Set aside while the spinach wilts.

Roll the dough (homemade or store bought) into individual or large rounds.

Add a small amount of sauce to the pizza.  Top with mozzarella, sautéed spinach, caramelized onions, and bacon.

Slide the pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for 5 minutes or until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted.
