“All names mean something.” Salman Rushdie
The above quote is going to take a little thought and the name of this recipe is going to take a little acceptance. You see, this is really not a casserole, but rather a creative way to get rid of leftover pizza when your family will not eat it for one more day.
Note – You can wrap leftover pizza in foil and freeze it for a few weeks. Then, when you’re ready to face pizza again, simply thaw and prepare like a grilled sandwich.
Cook this on a very low heat for about 30 minutes. That would be 15minutes on each side. The crust becomes crispy and the cheese gets all melty. But I digress.
My Pizza Bread Casserole came to me as I remembered bread salad, one of my favorite foods that doesn’t contain chocolate.
1 cup diced tomatoes
2 t pizza seasoning
1/2 cup broth
1 to 2 cups raw spinach
Cut the leftover pizza into bite-sized chunks. Place the chunks into a skillet.
Mix the pizza seasoning, or some basil and oregano, with the diced tomatoes. Add a bit of broth. You’ll need the broth or bouillon because the pizza chunks are going to soak up all the liquid in the pan and stick and cause you to say bad words as you attempt to pry up the chunks. But I digress.
Pour the liquid over the pizza chunks. Top with spinach. Cover the pan and simmer about 5 minutes or until the spinach is wilted but still bright green.
Top with goat cheese and serve.
Originally I didn’t think to add goat cheese until I looked at the dish and decided it looked bland. Not a good look for food or for you. If you don’t like goat cheese sprinkle on some kind of cheese that you enjoy. You are a grownup and allowed to make such decisions.
