Looking for a hearty Italian dinner? Then check out this delicious spinach and ham pizza made with French bread - ready in 30 minutes.
loaf (1 lb) French bread
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
can (8 oz) pizza sauce
cup chopped cooked ham
small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
tablespoons pine nuts
cups chopped fresh spinach (about 2 oz)
slices (1 oz each) provolone cheese, cut in half
Heat oven to 400°F. Cut loaf of bread in half horizontally; cut each half crosswise into thirds. Place cut sides up on ungreased large cookie sheet; brush with oil. Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until tops are slightly toasted. Remove from oven.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over cut sides of each piece of bread. Top evenly with ham, onion, nuts and spinach. Place 4 half slices of cheese on top of each.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and pizza is hot.
This recipe is a great way to use up leftover ham. Or look for packaged chopped cooked ham near packaged deli meats and bacon at your grocery store.
Pine nuts, which have a high fat content, can turn rancid quickly. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 months or in the freezer up to 9 months.
