If you've read some of the other recipes on this site you know I love spinach, so here's a pizza I throw together every so often. It's good for parties, too, as an appetizer. Just cut in bite-sized pieces.
---dough for one medium pizza (see notes below)
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1/2 lb mozzarella, grated
1/2 c grated pecorino Romano
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
salt, pepper
2 T olive oil

Thaw and lightly drain the spinach. Don't squeeze it too much, it's not necessary to remove all the water now. Sautee minced garlic in hot oil until lightly browned. Lower heat and carefully add spinach so it doesn't spatter. Stir spinach. The better the leaves are coated with oil, the less they will stick together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fry over medium heat with stirring until most of the excess water is gone and the spinach starts to stick to the pan. Lower heat, cover and cook a bit more (perhaps 5 min) to develop the flavor.

Prepare pizza dough for oven. Spread the spinach evenly over the dough, then the mozzarella, then the Romano. Sprinkle with a little oil if desired. Bake in a 400 deg oven until the cheese is melted and a bit browned and the bottom of the crust is lightly browned.

NOTE: I have yet to make pizza dough myself that is particularly good, so I buy bags of dough from an Italian bakery. I just can't match it in flavor or texture.
