I love pizza night. I find it so satisfying to make my own pizza because I can control the ingredients and make it healthier!

This pizza is a good source of filling protein. And it’s loaded with nutrient-packed spinach. Instead of tomato sauce, I used olive oil for a burst of heart-healthy fats.

Thank you to Nate’s for sponsoring this blog post. All opinions, as always, are my own.

And of course, the pizza gets a finishing touch of sweet honey to perfectly complement all the savory ingredients.

The best part? Everything cooks up in just about 20 minutes.

Ingredients

Frozen pizza crust

I love making pizza with frozen crust, and I always keep a few in my freezer. If you follow a gluten-free diet like me, you can use a gluten-free, cauliflower-based crust.

Olive oil, crushed garlic, and red pepper flakes

What would a feta spinach pizza be without bursts of flavor? The olive oil adds heart-healthy fats, the garlic provides the antioxidant allicin, and the red pepper flakes give lots of flavor for very few calories.

Frozen spinach

This is one of my favorite ingredients to use to add lots of nutrition to pizza. Spinach provides fiber, which helps cholesterol levels and also helps to keep you fuller for longer.

If you forget to defrost the spinach ahead of time, you can microwave it for about 5 minutes before draining and patting dry.

Feta

Crumbled feta adds such a nice creaminess to this feta spinach pizza. If you follow a dairy-free diet, you can substitute dairy-free feta. I tested the pizza both ways, and it was absolutely delicious either way.

Honey

Now, here comes the hero ingredient! When the pizza comes out of the oven, you’ll drizzle it with honey right before serving. I used Nate’s 100% Pure Raw & Unfiltered Honey.

Why Nate’s honey?

I’ve long loved Nate’s honey, and I was so excited to jazz up this spinach feta pizza with it.

Honey has so many benefits. It contains the antioxidants flavonoids and polyphenols, per research in Pharmacognosy Research.

These nutrients are perhaps why research shows consuming honey may be beneficial for helping to reduce inflammation in the body.

Although honey is an added sugar, it contains trace vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, and potassium.

And Nate’s is one of the most nutritious honeys out there. The folks at Nate’s don’t cook their honey at high temperatures. Instead, they gently warm the raw honey to keep all the incredible nutrients intact.

The honey is also unfiltered. This means the honey comes straight from the hive, and the honey contains particles of pollen and wax.

The honey is strained before it’s bottled so all the good stuff—which boasts so many nutrients—stays in the honey.

And I love that the production is sustainable—the bottles are recyclable, and all waste materials generated on site are recycled.

You can buy many varieties of Nate’s but my favorite products are:

  • 100% Pure Raw & Unfiltered Honey
  • 100% Pure Organic Raw & Unfiltered Honey
  • Hot Honey
  • Raw & Unfiltered Honey Minis—these are so great for traveling!

Recipe FAQ

Is spinach and feta pizza good?

Feta spinach pizza is so delicious! The combination of spinach, feta, olive oil, red pepper flakes, crushed garlic, and honey is so incredible.

Is spinach and feta pizza dairy free?

The pizza is not dairy free as is but can be made so with a few modifications. If you follow a dairy-free diet, make sure to purchase a pizza dough that does not contain milk or cheese. And you can easily substitute dairy-free feta in lieu of regular feta.

Is spinach and feta pizza gluten free?

If you’d like to make this spinach feta pizza gluten free, simply swap in a gluten-free pizza crust. I tested this recipe with a cauliflower-based, gluten-free pizza crust—and it was delicious!

Can you melt feta on pizza?

Feta doesn’t completely melt the same way that mozzarella does. If you want a really melty cheese topping, you can add some mozzarella to the feta. Or you can use dairy-free feta cheese, which melts surprisingly well!
