Balsamic Feta Pizza
When I recently asked on a giveaway on my facebook page what you like seeing the most on my blog so many people wrote that they love my pizza recipes. I was shocked! I mean, I personally love my pizza recipes, but I never knew they had such a following. I will say that making pizza at home is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. You can add any toppings to it to make a totally different meal, and quite frankly, pizza is so delicious so you know you're in for a good dinner! This recipe came across my radar and immediately needed to be made. It has a bit of a Greek flair and is totally amazing. Give it a shot- John and I were both in love.

1 batch pizza dough (I used individual sized Boboli's)
1 cup grape tomatoes
2-3 tbsp balsamic glaze (not vinegar- you need glaze or a reduced vinegar- it's thicker)
1 cup baby spinach
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1- Preheat the oven to 425. Place the grape tomatoes in an oven safe dish. Season with salt and pepper. Roast 20-30 minutes, until they begin to burst.
2- Transfer the tomatoes to a small bowl. Add the spinach and stir so the spinach begins to wilt from the heat.
3- Prepare your dough. Top the dough with 2 tbsp of the glaze, spread thinly. Top with the tomato/spinach mixture. Layer the cheeses on top. Drizzle the remaining tbsp of glaze over the top.
4- Bake 12 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is crisp.
