Getting my kids to eat certain vegetables can be a challenge. They love vegetables like corn and carrots but getting them to eat spinach is another thing entirely. I've tried all sorts of ways to get them to eat spinach. I've crumbled it up and added it to spaghetti sauce. I've added a few leaves into our garden salads. I've even tried hiding it in meatloaf but somehow the kids always seem to find it.
Spinach can be a difficult vegetable to get children to eat because of its strong taste. Since leafy greens are one of the first vegetables we have in our garden, it’s something that I serve regularly. Spinach is also loaded with nutrition like plant based omega 3’, folate, calcium, iron and lutein. It is a vegetable that I want my children to develop a taste for but it's not easy raising a picky eater so sometimes I need to get a little bit creative. (run-on sentence.) One of the only ways that the kids actually enjoy spinach is on their pizza. They always ask for seconds when I serve my Gorgonzola Spinach and Onion Pizza. When I add spinach to our homemade pizzas, I add it to a white pizza. White pizzas do not have the pizza sauce or tomato sauce on them like a traditional pizza does. A white pizza is sometimes called a pizza blanca. White pizza is traditionally standard pizza dough topped with butter or olive oil, fresh herbs or spinach and then a variety of different cheeses. When we don't have spinach, we sometimes substitute fresh basil leaves for a slightly different taste. We use a combination of whole mozzarella cheese and Litehouse Foods Artisan Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles in this recipe. The combination of mozzarella and gorgonzola is smooth and robust. Best of all, Litehouse Foods Artisan Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles are rBST and gluten free.
