Green Garlic Pizza

This pizza was made by Joseph S. Clark Preparatory High School's Culinary Club with basil from their aeroponics towers! 

Category: Main Dishes


1 10-oz can refrigerated pizza dough
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
2 cups chopped fresh spinach/leafy greens
1 cup grated low-sodium mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried basil


  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, sauté the basil and garlic in olive oil until golden and pour into small dish to cool.

  2. Roll out the pizza dough, place onto a pizza pan or other baking sheet, and spread the olive oil mixture over the surface using the back of a spoon.

  3. Arrange greens in an even layer. Top with diced tomato and mozzarella cheese.

  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes in preheated oven, until crust is browned and center is cooked through. 

Feedback from a Clark Student: “This is good but I would add chicken”
–add 1 cup of cooked chicken with the greens!
