Restaurant Recipe Friday-Applebee's Spinach Pizza Appetizer



Here's number two in the Restaurant Recipe Friday series!

Happy cooking:)


Applebee's Spinach Pizza Appetizer

Pita Bread (2 or 3 whole)
1 − 10 oz. pkg frozen spinach
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 med. onion
5 or 6 plum tomatoes
8 Ounce pkg fresh mushrooms
3−4 cloves garlic
1 Teaspoon of each of the following spices:
basil, parsley, cayenne pepper
1/2 to 1 cup rice milk
4 Tablespoon flour
Thaw spinach completely, press out all water. Heat milk in saucepan, when
hot but not boiling stir in flour. Stir until sauce begins to thicken, turn
heat down. Add nutritional yeast and spinach. Stir constantly until thick
and gooey, only about 3−4 min. In separate pan, saute onion, garlic, until
onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes, mushrooms, and spices. Saute until just
done. Preheat oven to 425. Using a very sharp bread knife, split each pita
bread so that you have two round flat pieces instead of one thick one.
Place each piece of bread on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread spinach
sauce over each. Top with tomato mixture, being careful to avoid the juice.
Bake for 5 to 7 min. Watch closely so that the edges of the pita don't
burn.
