Nutrition for Runners: Spinach and Tomato Pizza


Tonight’s recipe is another very easy one to make. If you want to use home-made sauce and crust like we did you can use this recipe for the sauce and this recipe for the crust.

Finally, top your crust with the sauce, tomato, spinach and cheese and cook in the oven at 500 for 15 minutes.

This recipe was a hit in our house tonight and we will try it again. It will be even better once we can use spinach and tomatoes from our own garden!
