Spinach Pizza

Spinach Pizza

1 large garlic clove, crushed or finely chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 bag fresh spinach, steamed, or 1 box (10 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed and well drained

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 recipe Pizza Dough

all-purpose flour

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded or thinly sliced

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 500° F. In a medium skillet over low heat, cook the garlic in the oil for 1 minute. Stir in the spinach, salt and pepper. Cover and cook the mixture for 2 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Place the dough on a floured surface. Using your hands or a rolling pin, stretch the dough into a 12-inch round.

Dust a baking sheet or pizza pan with flour. Transfer the round of dough to the baking sheet; shake the pan to be sure the dough doesn’t stick. If necessary, lift up an edge of the dough and dust underneath with more flour.

Spread the spinach over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with mozzarella and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake the pizza for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are puffed and the crust is crisp and browned. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut into wedges and serve.
