Pizza Delivery for Roy G. Biv

Well, I made a dark, evil, scary pizza… I thought it was only right that I should make a bright, happy, colorful pizza.

This was actually attempt number two. Number one had a white crust, and also included black beans for the “blue”. But, my husband was not a fan of black beans on a pizza, and they weren’t all that blue anyway… So I ditched them, and I made the crust with spinach. This time, husband was like, “I don’t even care that this is rainbow colored, I want to eat this on the regular.” So, with his blessing, I blog about number two.

Attempt number one.

To be fair, I did not force him, or even expect him to eat the rainbow pizza.. Based on his history, I expected the toppings would be a little too non-traditional for him, not to mention the threat to his manhood. I made him his own nice normal pizza with spinach and pepperoni, but much to my surprise, he wanted to eat rainbow pizza.

Normal pizza.

Also, I stuffed the crust.

So. In case you’d like to make your own rainbow pizza, here’s what I did (makes a thin crust. If you want a regular crust, double):

Spinach crust:
-1/2 packet active dry yeast
-1/2 TBS sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 cup spinach
-1/4 cup water

-1 cup all purpose flour (more if needed. Dough should be sticky, but workable)


-Combine  yeast sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl

-In a blender or food processor puree spinach with the water

-Warm spinach and water to about 110 degrees F (Should be warm to the touch but not burn)

-Pour spinach mixture over the yeast. Let sit for 5-10 minutes until foamy.

-Stir in flour until you are no longer able to stir, then knead until elastic.

-Place dough in an oiled bowl and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

-Put sauce, toppings and cheese on pizza, and bake for 12 minutes.




-Purple cauliflower

-Orange bell pepper



Sauce (it was my easy garlic sauce):

-1 TBS garlic powder

-1 TBS dried oregano

-3 TBS olive oil
