Ingredients

  • 1 portion Homemade Pizza Dough
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup New York–Style Pizza Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed baby spinach leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 2 plum tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. 1. Remove Homemade Pizza Dough from refrigerator; let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
  2. 2. Preheat oven to 500°.
  3. 3. Coat a 12-inch perforated pizza pan with cooking spray.
  4. 4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface; roll into a 12-inch circle. Transfer dough to prepared pan, shaking off excess flour. Brush dough evenly with oil.
