Spinach-Tomato Pizza and Leftover Rigatoni with Meatballs--Wild Wednesday Night Dinner

Tonight I had intended to have the leftover rigatoni and meatballs for dinner and enjoy not having to cook.  But for whatever reason, I was in the mood to prepare something this evening (probably because I didn't have to)!  I had a small leftover ball of fresh pizza dough, 1/2 a container of fresh organic baby spinach and Roma I decided to make a smaller thick crust "Chicago Style" pizza.  The plus is I didn't have to spend as much time rolling out the dough to a thin circle.  I quickly sauteed my spinach to get the liquid out, thinly sliced my Roma tomatoes and removed their seeds and then rolled the dough out to a small thick circle.  I spread a little sauce, covered it with some mozzarella and Italian shredded cheese and scattered my cooked spinach and tomato slices and popped it in the oven.  I must was really good!  We had one slice of spinach tomato pizza alongside a small portion of leftover rigatoni with a meatball on top...I know it sounds kind of weird...but sometimes weird is good!  :-)

Check out my pizza & rigatoni with meatball combo below!

Spinach-Tomato Pizza -- I tried to convince my husband that the tomatoes kind of looked like pepperoni...just better for him...not sure he bought into that one.
