Makes: 18-24 slices


(use organic ingredients where possible)

  • 1 ball high-quality pizza dough (substitute your favorite gluten-free pizza dough, if desired
  • 1 jar marinara sauce or your favorite red sauce
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more to drizzle on the pizza crust


  • ¼ cup black olives, sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 oz goat cheese, crumbled


  1. Preheat oven and pizza stone to 475°F (250°C).
  2. Take pizza dough out of refrigerator, and allow it to come to room temperature, covered. 
  3. To prepare your toppings, sauté red and green bell pepper in one tablespoon olive oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Once softened, add spinach and olives to heat through.
  4. Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper and lightly sprinkle with flour.
  5. Roll out the room temperature dough. Make sure it is even throughout.
  6. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and spread across the dough. Sprinkle with a big pinch of sea salt.
  7. Spread pizza sauce on the crust and add toppings.


  1. Slide your pizza (still on parchment the parchment paper) onto another pizza pan. Then, gently transfer it to the hot pizza stone in the oven.
  2. After 4 minutes, carefully remove the parchment paper by sliding it out from under the pizza. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, until the crust is a light golden brown.
  3. To remove the pizza, use a set of tongs to pull the pizza onto a room temperature pan.
