Begin by making the Pizza Dough.  The recipe we are suggesting is for a thick crust pizza.  If you want a thinner crust, reduce the recipe accordingly.  Whole wheat flour may be substituted for the spelt and barley used in our recipe.

While the pizza dough is rising, peel, slice, and cut the onion into the desired size pieces and place in a cooking pot or microwaveable covered dish which is large enough to hold all of the topping ingredients.  Peel and crush the garlic and add to the dish. 

Wash and scrape the yellow coloring off the lemon.  Cut the lemon and remove the seeds.  Finely chop the lemon, retaining the juice, and add to the cooking pot or dish.  Add the pepper (we prefer red pepper sauce) and mix well.

Cook the ingredients until the onions just begin to become translucent.  Remove the dish from the microwave oven or stove top and add the spinach.  If the spinach is in frozen blocks, heat slowly on the stove top until the spinach defrosts; if cooking in a microwave, defrost the spinach on high heat.  There will most likely be some liquid forming in the dish. 

Pour off or spoon out a little of this liquid to "cream" the cornstarch.  If the liquid is hot, let it cool before adding the cornstarch and mixing well to insure that the cornstarch is thoroughly dispersed.  When the topping ingredients are hot, pour in the cornstarch mixture and mix well.  Any liquid remaining in the dish should be thickened.  If it is not, add a little more cornstarch mixed with a little water to make a paste and add to the dish, and mix well again.  Reheat the topping ingredients.  At this point, the spinach topping should be thickened.

When the pizza dough has risen, place in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. for 15 minutes to "set" the dough and harden the top.  Remove from the oven and quickly top with the spinach mixture.  Sprinkle on the sliced olives and place back in the 400 degree oven for another 15 minutes.

Remove the finished baked spinach pizza from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.  Enjoy!  (To enlarge the photo of the spinach pizza slice, click on the photo or link)

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-14)
