Spinach & Sun-dried Tomato Stuffed Pizza…Mangiamo!

When any old pizza just won’t do, this specialty pizza will definitely satisfy the hungriest appetites! You can make this delicious, spinach and sun-dried tomato stuffed pizza for dinner and surprise your family and friends with pizzeria-style pizza! It is easier than you think…so mangiamo!

Yes, I love to make my own homemade pizza dough, but you can easily make this with store bought dough. This delicious pizza is filled with sun-dried tomato, spinach, garlic, cheese, and pepperoni. I topped it off with marinara and Romano cheese and then baked in a cast iron skillet to make the crust especially crispy. This one literally slid out of the pan by sliding a spatula underneath. Enjoy!
