Spinach And Mushroom Pizza

I absolutely love making spinach and mushroom pizza – it’s a delicious and nutritious twist on the classic Italian dish. The combination of earthy mushrooms, flavorful spinach, and gooey cheese creates a mouthwatering experience that’s hard to resist. Let me share with you my favorite recipe and tips for making this delectable pizza.


  • 1 pre-made pizza dough
  • 1 cup of marinara sauce
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


First, preheat the oven to 450°F (232°C). Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and transfer it to a pizza pan or baking sheet.

Spread the marinara sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border for the crust. Sprinkle half of the shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Then, add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes until they are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Next, distribute the sautéed mushrooms and garlic over the pizza. Layer the fresh spinach leaves on top, followed by the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Place the pizza in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and melted.

Personal Touch:

I love adding a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and a drizzle of balsamic glaze over the finished pizza for an extra kick of flavor. The combination of the spicy heat from the pepper flakes and the sweet tanginess of the balsamic glaze takes this pizza to the next level.

Spinach and mushrooms are a match made in pizza heaven. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms complements the mild bitterness of the spinach, creating a harmonious balance of taste and texture. Not to mention, both spinach and mushrooms are packed with nutrients, making this pizza a guilt-free indulgence.
