Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely-grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds ground chicken (or beef)
  • 1 or 2 fresh, ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Baby spinach leaves -- 3 large handfuls
  • 1 cup (or slightly more) shredded Mozarella cheese

Instructions

  • Adjust oven racks to the center and upper third positions; preheat oven to 450°F. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Then beat in the Parmesan or Asiago cheese, the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Add the ground meat, and mix by hand until well-combined.
  • Coat a large baking sheet with vegetable spray. Add the meat mixture, and press it out to form a rough 9x13-inch rectangle. Bake on the center rack in the preheated oven until done -- 20-25 minutes. Drain off fat.
  • While the meat "crust" is baking, put the tomato slices on a double thickness of paper towels. Dust each slice with a small sprinkling of salt, and let drain for 10-15 minutes. Then blot the tops with another paper towel.
  • Add the olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add the spinach leaves, and saute just until the leaves wilt -- about 4 minutes.
  • Remove the crust from the oven, and set the oven to "broil." Top the crust with the sauteed spinach, salted tomato slices, and the Mozzarella cheese. Broil on the upper rack until the cheese melts and turns spotty brown -- about 1 minute.
