August 2017 Recipe of the Month: El Greco Pizza

Recipe from "Big Green Egg"

1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups fresh spinach
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1/2 mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/3 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
1 thin crust pizza dough round of your choice

1) Set the EGG for indirect cooking (with the convEGGtor) at 550°F/288°C.

2) In a Stir-Fry & Paella Pan or sauté pan, heat the olive oil, minced garlic and fresh spinach. Toss the spinach around in the oil until it wilts enough to be managed with a spoon. Remove from the EGG and set aside.

3) Add a Pizza & Baking Stone and preheat approximately 20 minutes prior to baking.

4) On a Dough Rolling Mat, roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick; transfer it to a heavily floured Pizza Peel. Use a spoon to evenly spread the marinara sauce around the dough. Next, spread the cooked spinach over the sauce; sprinkle evenly with the shredded mozzarella and olives.

5) Move the dough to the Pizza & Baking Stone and bake for approximately 5 minutes. Remove the pizza from the EGG when the crust is crisp and evenly browned. Sprinkle immediately with crumbled feta cheese. Allow to cool for one minute before slicing to serve.
