Beets are just one of those foods. You love 'um or you hate 'um. But if you're in the "hate 'um" club, I really think you should give them another chance. They are so good for you! And a pizza is the perfect chance for that second date.
Beet Pizzas with Cashews and Arugula
4 medium beets, washed well and sliced into 1/4" thick slices (no need to peel them!)
Dashes of salt and pepper
Olive oil spray
4- 10" tortillas
1/2 cup raw cashews, chopped
2 cups baby arugula leaves
3-4 oz crumbled feta cheese
4 small shallots, sliced thin
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place beet slices onto a baking sheet that has been prepared with olive oil spray. Spray beets with additional olive oil, then sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, flipping slices halfway through cooking. Remove from oven when soft.
Lay tortillas on a separate ungreased baking sheet. Spray each tortilla with olive oil, then lay beet slices evenly on tortillas. Sprinkle each pizza with cashews, feta, and shallots, then top with 1/2 cup baby arugula leaves. Sprinkle each pizza with salt and ground black pepper. Place baking sheet into the 400 degree oven and bake pizzas for 5-6 minutes. When tortillas are slightly firm (but not crisp), transfer pizzas directly to the middle rack of the oven to finish cooking for 3-5 minutes (watch closely).
Remove pizzas from the oven when crisp and lightly browned on the edges and bottom. Cut each into quarters and serve!
