Recipe Time

Prep: 12 Minutes
Cook: 17 Minutes

Ingredients

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 leek, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
5 ounces fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Kasseri or provolone cheese
2 tablespoons pine nuts (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°. (For a crispy crust, preheat a pizza stone on the lowest rack in the oven.)

2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add leek and garlic; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in salt and pepper. Add spinach, in batches; cook 2 minutes or just until wilted.

3. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured baking sheet or pizza peel. Brush edges of crust with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Spread spinach mixture to edges of crust; top with cheeses and pine nuts, if desired.

4. If desired, transfer pizza to pizza stone dusted with cornmeal or semolina flour; bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly.
