Pizza Bianco and Insalata Caprese $6.49

I Was feeling very ambitious and decided to make homemade pizza instead of frozen to go along with my favorite "non lettuce" salad out there, and also the easiest!!-Insalta Caprese, aka tomato, mozzarella and basil.
Ill start with the pizza- sometime I am in the mood for a pizza sans tomato sauce, and that in Italy is called "pizza en Bianco". The Bianco is olive oil, lightly spread on the pizza crust, and then topped with whatever is of interest. This pizza was made with spinach and onion and light cheese, it was the perfect light combo to accompany the mozzarella salad.
Recipe for Pizza:
Pizza crust mix or frozen(I almost always use Pillsbury Hotroll mix-its awesome!).90
1o ounces frozen spinach.70
3 tablespoon garlic minced .15
1 medium onion sliced thinly .30
1 cup mozarella cheese shredded .40
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt .05

make pizza crust according to direction
heat 1 tblsp oil in small pan
add onions and saute until glassy(about 10 minutes)
add spinach and salt and pepper, cook 10 minutes
spread remaining olive oil on crust
sprinkle with garlic salt
top pizza with onion and spinach evenly
sprinkle on cheese
bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted

For Tomato Mozarella Basil Salad

2 tomatos sliced thinly $1.00
8 ounce ball of mozarella sliced $1.99
2 tablespoon olive oil .20
12-16 leaves fresh basil .80
salt and pepper

On a serving tray lay out tomato, mozarella and basil-rotating each like a sandwhich
dress with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste
some like balsamic vinegar, I prefer without, but either can work very nicely
