A bread machine saves time when preparing the thick homemade crust for this Italian treat. "My boys happily call it green pizza due to all of the spinach," shares Sharlin Blamires of Coweta, Oklahoma. And because Sharlin leaves out the meat and uses fresh tomatoes instead of canned sauce, her pizza is much lower in salt than most carryout pies.
