Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

A family favorite: Four Cheese Spinach Pizza

So here's a family favorite I have made for years.  I use Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza crust instead of the said boboli and I use 2 bricks of frozen spinach (note: take an old rag and put the spinach in it and squeeze out all the water).  If you are doing Feingold omit the balsamic vinegar and tomatoes and used approved products and make your own pizza crust.

Four Cheese Spinach Pizza
Serves 6

6 WW points per slice


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 prebaked 12-inch thin pizza crust
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute spinach for 2-3 minutes or until wilted; remove from the skillet. Cool slightly; chop.
  • In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese. Stir in the spinach, salt and pepper. Spread over crust to within 1/2 in. of edge.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tomato, onions, olives, basil, oil, vinegar and garlic; sprinkle over spinach mixture.
  • Top with the feta cheese and remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until cheese softens and is lightly browned. Yield: 6 servings.


  1. We made a modified version of this tonight. We made our crust and used a pesto, butter, garlic, cream for the sauce. Added diced chicken. Chevre for the feta and omitted the tomatoes as we are still in phase 1. The kids have missed pizza and we have always been papa murpheys fans so this was perfect. Love it! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Oh glad you enjoyed it...I may have to try it your way...sounds yummy
