I adapted this recipe from one given to me by my Aunt Rosemary. I especially like to make this pizza in summer when fresh spinach and basil are plentiful—they are key to the wonderful taste. —Barbara Robinson of Hamburg, Pennsylvania

"This was delicious! I actually made this on a flatbread. Because it was a small flatbread, I cut all the ingredients in half, and actually cut the spinach into 1/4 (only about 5oz spinach). I found that the spinach seemed a tad soggy after cooking it in the skillet. I think that actually caused the pizza to seem a bit soggy. Otherwise it tasted GREAT. I put the flatbread on a pizza pan, put it in for about 10-11 minutes. Will definitely make this again."
