Caramelized Onion and Spinach Pizza with Peanut sauce…

Annie shared this recipe on her blog a while back and I have been dying to make it…

I used my favourite dough which I shared in this post

For the sauce… (I changed it a bit to suit my taste and Annie’s recipe didn’t have water and it just doesn’t work without it for me)

Peanut Pizza Sauce

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Ginger, minced
  • 3-4 heaping tbsp  Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp Tamari
  • 1 tbsp Demerara Sugar
  • Garlic Chili Paste (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp Green Onion, chopped (I use two)
  • 1/3 cup of warm water (or more depending on how thin you want it)

Blend together to make a sauce

Ready to be blended…

Peanut sauce is done… this stuff is amazing… not only for pizza but for a dipping sauce also…

Caramelize the onions… I then added garlic, mushrooms and then some spinach…

Spread the sauce on the prepared dough and then add the toppings…

I then added some more fresh spinach and grated carrot…

Pizza dough…

Pizza is such a great meal to make… it is easy, pretty cheap, delicious and there are always leftovers!

My favourite recipe for the dough makes 3 good sized pizza’s…

  • 2 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 3 tsp yeast
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 5 1/2 cups of flour

Put the water in a large bowl (or the bowl of your mixer) and add the yeast and honey and let sit for about 5 min…

Meanwhile, mix the flour and salt together…

Add the olive oil to the yeasty water, mix then add the flour. The dough should be quite moist and a bit sticky. Knead until you get a soft and satiny dough… set aside in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. (about 45 min to an hour.)

When the dough had doubled, divide into three pieces and prepare.

Tonight the boys all wanted pepperoni and cheese…We use a can of Garlic Tomato paste mixed with a can of water and some herbs to make the pizza sauce.

I wanted to make the caramelized onion and spinach pizza with peanut sauce that Annie had shared… and of course the beauty of pizza is that you can make your own…

Here is the Pepperoni and cheese…
