Young Beet Greens Pizza

The recipe might seem boring, as it only includes a couple of ingredients. Two ingredients in fact - young beet greens and feta cheese. The pizza dough is topped with beet and feta paste, baked with beet greens and sprinkled with fresh feta. One-track-minded, but delicious.
