I was heading over to a friends house to eat a bit of pizza before going to the movies to watch Julie and Julia. My girlfriend made a pizza for our husbands and children and I made this pizza for us girls. I was craving a veggie pizza that was full of flavor but not full of fat. I looked through the refrigerator to see what I had. I grabbed some fresh spinach, mushrooms, red onions, black olives, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, and a clove of fresh garlic. The pizza was simple to make and traveled well to our friends house. We re-heated it for a few minutes before gobbling it up. It was so delicious! We headed to the movie and all of us really, really loved it. I thought Meryl did such an excellent job as Julia and I could totally relate to the food blogger in Julie. It was a great night out with the girls.Veggie Pizza:
