When I was pregnant last year I had gestational diabetes which means no real pizza for me , this version was good for my pizza cravings . Do note its messy to eat.

Photo taken before baking. I also used crumbled tofu instead of cheese on half of the batch, as some of my guests were vegan. (they also didnt like tomatoes) In addition, I made a tomato / basil sauce and spooned in the bottom before adding any toppings.

This recipe seems brill - more of a question than a review though. Does the spinach have to be frozen because I cant seem to found any that is?

I used large portobellos; filling was suffiicient for or 3 of those. And I substituted chopped salami for the pepperoni.

My version featured smoked turkey and pepperoni. They were delicious and I cleared some leftovers from the fridge.
