Applebee's Spinach Pizza Appetizer

1 med. onion

1 Teaspoon of each of the following spices:
basil, parsley, cayenne pepper
1/2 to 1 cup rice milk
4 Tablespoon flour
Thaw spinach completely, press out all water.
Heat milk in saucepan,
when hot but not boiling stir in flour.
Stir until sauce begins to thicken, turn
heat down. Add nutritional yeast and spinach.
Stir constantly until thick
and gooey, only about 3-4 min.
In separate pan, sauté onion, garlic, until
onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes,
mushrooms, and spices. Sauté until just
done. Preheat oven to 425.

Place each piece of bread on a cookie sheet
or pizza pan. Spread spinach
sauce over each. Top with tomato mixture,
being careful to avoid the juice.
Bake for 5 to 7 min.
Watch closely so that the
edges of the pita don't
