I bet you’re thinking …
Doesn’t Zippy love her champagne and baked stuffed Maine lobster (that Emeril used to make for us at the Venus de Milo in Swansea, MA)?
Well, yes I do, but comfort food is usually the food that you grew up on, and this Jewish girl grew up in a mixed Jewish-Italian neighborhood, so when I reach for food that comforts me, it’s usually pasta, apizza, or the FIRST FOOD I GET when I go back home to Rhode Island…a Caserta’s spinach pie.
I do make them at home, but NOTHING beats the original.
Zippy’s Spinach Pie recipe
- 5 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- Pizza dough – either store bought or homemade
- 2 cans of no salt added spinach – YES CANNED!!
- 1 can chopped olives
- crushed red pepper
- NOTE: we try to reduce our salt intake as the olives AND the low-sodium canned spinach have plenty. You can salt to taste if you prefer.
- Let the dough get to room temperature
- slice garlic & saute in olive oil
- add the spinach to the garlic & oil
- add olives & crushed red pepper
- cook over a medium heat until the flavors permeate the spinach (taste)
- roll out dough & cut into 4 pieces
- stuff each with a mound of the spinach mixture
- bake at 400 until dough is golden brown & slightly crisp
- MANGIA!! Eat Bubbala!

I’m going to have to try this! Do you drain the spinach or add the can with all the juices?

I’d drop the pepperoni and the olives, and then I’d be in HEAVEN with this dish. Delicious!
