The Ladies Who Lunch: Spinach and Onion White Pizza

Pizza is a staple in a typical college student’s diet; it’s cheap, easy and delivers straight to your house. However, Papa John doesn’t always have to hand toss your pie, it’s super simple to do it yourself. The Pillsbury Dough Boy is my best friend and the refrigerated thin pizza crust in a can is quite scrumptious and when topped with not-so-typical ingredients,  you can treat yourself to more than two piece (I promise, I won’t tell your friends 🙂 ).

Spinach and Onion White Pizza

Instead of the tomato sauce variety, I replaced it with a jazzed-up cream cheese which helps you get past the veggie topping.

  • 1 can Pillsbury Thin Pizza Crust
  • 3 tbs Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Cream Cheese, softened (You can stir in garlic powder and other spices or use a onion cream cheese- plain can get a little boring!)
  • 1 handful Fresh Spinach (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 medium Onion, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roll the pizza dough out on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and, using a fork, poke holes in the inner ring (leave about an inch around for the crust). This will avoid the middle rising above the crust.
  2. Pre-bake the dough for 5 minutes or until the pie has a very slightly solid top. Take the pizza out of the oven.
  3. Brush the dough with olive oil (leaving the crust plain) and then with the cream cheese. The heat of the crust will help the cream cheese spread more easily.
  4. Sprinkle with onions, spinach and then cheese.
  5. Bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown
  6. Enjoy!
