Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 250g spinach leaves, washed
  • 2 pinsa romana bases
  • 125g fontina cheese or mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan or vegetarian alternative

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion, garlic and thyme with some salt and pepper over a low-medium heat for 10 minutes until well softened. Add the spinach, stir and cook for 1-2 minutes or until just wilted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool (see Make Ahead).
  2. Heat the oven to 230°C/210°C fan/gas 8. Divide the spinach mixture between the 2 bases, then top with the fontina/mozzarella, pine nuts and parmesan. Cook for 6-8 minutes until the toppings are melted and golden.
