Flag Pizza

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces part skim mozzarella cheese slices
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter or Country Crock® Spread
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce or Ragu® Pizza Quick Sauce
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into slices or 1 sliced red bell pepper or a mixture of the two
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Take two slices of mozzarella cheese and stack together.
  2. Use kitchen scissors or small knife to cut a few star shapes out of the cheese. Slice remaining cheese slices into 1-inch strips.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°.
  4. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Stretch pizza dough to fit a rectangular pan. Spread sauce evenly over dough.
  6. Sprinkle spinach over top left corner of dough. Place stars on the spinach. Lay tomatoes (or peppers) and cheese strips in alternating strips on rest of the pizza.
  7. Bake 10 to 20 minutes until cheese is melted and starting to turn golden and crust is starting to brown. Remove from oven and serve with crushed red pepper flakes (if using).

    I made the Flag Pizza for a 4th BBQ yesterday, and it turned out great, looked exactly like pictured and was a BIG HIT! Thanks for a great (patriotic) idea!
