Spinach Feta Bread Pizza in a Snap

This recipe is one of my favorite go-to appetizers....Spinach Feta Bread Pizza. It's a snap to make and the results are, oh so good! Start out with any store bought homemade bread. I typically go for whatever is on sale (Each week, Dash's has a featured artisan bread on sale) but French, Italian or Ciabatta Bread works great, as do bagels. For this recipe I started with Italian bread and sliced it in half length-wise, added fresh baby spinach and feta cheese, then finished it off with a little olive oil, fresh lemon, garlic and salt n pepper. I popped it in the oven for 10 minutes and wala done. End result: a perfect snack, impromptu appetizer or light meal. The key to making this recipe a snap is adding ingredients that don't require any preparation or cooking. You could use frozen spinach but that requires defrosting and then straining the excess water and that in my opinion equates to a few unnecessary extra steps. Keep it simple and use toppings that you already have in your refrigerator or cupboard. I love adding canned artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, olives, or even sweet banana peppers. Anything goes with pizza bread, any cheese, any meat, any veggie. Nate doesn't like feta cheese so I made a pepperoni and mozzarella cheese pizza bread for him, while Tyler, Zachary and I enjoyed the Spinach Feta Bread to ourselves. As I was slicing the bread on the cutting board the boys were grabbing pieces before it was even plated. They loved it. So if you are looking for something that's quick, easy and delicious give this recipe a try. Salute to bread pizza in a snap!
