Make sure you wash and drain the spinach very well before blending. If the spinach contains too much water it could make the mixture too runny and it will not form a crust when baked. At first sight it looks like an omelette baked in the oven but it contains only 2 eggs and lots of spinach which makes this recipe good for your kids too. An easy way to boost their veggie intake too. Below are the steps by steps picture to help you reproduce this recipe.

I garnished the pizza with home made tomato sauce, grilled chicken breast cooked on the BBQ. I added some crumbled feta cheese, walnuts and pumpkin seeds to bring some crunch as the base is pretty soft.

  9. It is probably because you did not dry the spinach leaves enough after washing them or the leaves contains a bit more water than usual.
  10. Bake at 200 C for 35 minutes or until it is well cooked like an omelette.
  11. It could be a bit messy and released some extra liquid during the first baking minutes. You can add a foil paper under the tray for easy cleaning.

  13. Return in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the feta cheese is soft, melted and the flavour blend.

    The crust completely stuck to the baking paper once I tried to cut the finished pizza, we ended up having to dump the pizza over and scraping off as much crust as we could get- a huge mess. I would recommend putting down some flour or oil or something to ensure that this does not happen to you!

      Hi Claire, I am very sorry to hear that. As you can see on my picture it really works well in my kitchen and trust me I did this recipe many times (even some of my friends did it!). So I can only assume that it is coming from the different sort of baking paper we both used … I am based in New Zealand and I am using ‘Glad’ brand. However adding a bit of oil on the paper will not change the taste of the crust so it is a good idea for your next attempt. See you on the blog. Carine.

    I really LOVED this recipe. I’m so excited to be able to join the family on Pizza Fridays again. I used mozzarella instead of edam because that is what I had on hand. I’m considering trying this recipe with arugula. I think my favorite thing about this recipe is that it is sooooooo much easier than the cauliflower crusts recipes I’ve been trying.

I love low carb pizza too and I agree the spinach pizza crust is much easier than cauliflower!
