Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Trebbiano, Chianti, and Verdicchio are great choices for Italian. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. One wine you could try is Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico Riserva. It has 4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 23 dollars.

Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico Riserva

Intense ruby red color. Clear notes of strawberries, raspberries, spice and vanilla stand out on the nose. The wine is soft and enfolding on the palate; the right balance between acidity and tannins leaves a pleasant and persistent aftertaste in the mouth.Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees 30 minutes before baking the pizza.
  2. Using some cornmeal, roll pizza dough out to 1/8 inch thick. Transfer dough to a pizza pan.
  3. Spread pesto on the pizza, leaving about a 1-inch rim along the edges. You can make this as thick or as thin as you like but try not to drown the pizza in pesto as the pesto is strongly flavored AND could make your pizza soggy!
  4. Layer the cheddar cheese. Then the spinach. Then the Parmesan.
  5. Brush the crust with some olive oil and sprinkle some olive oil on top of the pizza. Then add a pinch of salt and a few cracks of ground pepper on top of the pizza.
  6. Put in oven on the lower, middle rack for 12-13 minutes, or until crust is brown and the cheese is slightly brown and melted.
  7. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving! Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your brand of pizza dough is gluten free (or make your own).

  • The great thing about parmesan cheese is that a little goes a long way, especially if you're buying the real deal.

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of dough you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. Otherwise you can make your own from scratch and be 100% sure.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If parmesan plays a big role in the flavor of your dish (or if you're a serious foodie or serious about avoiding additivies) it might be worth your time to track down "true" parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

Green Tips

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.
