Project Pinterest: Veggie Patch Pizza Applebee's Style

I haven't been to an Applebee's in ages and had forgotten how I completely am in love with their veggie patch pizza. I don't even know if they have it anymore, but when I used to go there frequently, a veggie patch pizza was what I always got. I saw this recipe on the Peas and Crayons blog, I immediately pinned it and had a smile from ear to ear because I had totally forgotten about my love for these pizzas!

The awesome thing is that it's EASY and FAST!!

Here's what you need:

-small pitas
-one box of creamed spinach (microwaved as per package instructions) or spinach artichoke dip
-baby portobello mushrooms
-mozzarella cheese
-roma tomato (chopped)

Here's what you do:

Preheat the oven to 350. I used a Pampered Chef baking stone and let it heat up with the oven. Meanwhile, I put the creamed spinach in the microwave and sauteed the mushrooms in a pat of butter and seasoned with a tad bit of garlic salt. Then I put the warmed spinach on the pita. Then the mushrooms, some mozzarella cheese and some tomatoes on top. I baked it until the cheese was melted (about six or seven minutes).

They tasted divine! Seriously, this is going to be in my usual repertoire from now on. They were even delicious cold!
