176. White Pizza and Spinach


A fluffy-crisp crust topped with an easy, creamy blend of cheese, and garnished with green spinach, makes a delicious and pretty pizza. I found this recipe on King Arthur Flour, and decided to make my own ricotta for it.I also sauteed the spinach in some of that garlic oil, which heightens the flavors so much, I just keep a cup of it in the refrigerator at all times. With planning, this recipe is as easy as: dough, cheese, spinach, season, bake!


For the crust:

1 1/4 cups flour
1 Tbsp dry milk
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 Tbsp plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp yeast


For the topping:

1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

2 Tbsp olive oil or garlic oil
1 pk frozen spinach

salt & pepper

Method:To make the crust:
Mix all of the ingredients to make a soft, supple dough.
Knead for 5 minutes, put the dough in a lightly greased bowl, and cover with plastic.
Allow the dough to rest for 30 to 45 minutes

Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Grease a pizza pan with olive oil or use a non-stick baking sheet.

Pat the dough into the pans.
Let the dough rise, covered, while you prepare the topping.
To make the topping: Mix the ricotta, and shredded cheese until well combined. Set it aside.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the (garlic) oil in a large skillet set over high heat.
Add the spinach and sprinkle on the salt.
Saute for 5 minutes then transfer it from the pan to a strainer, to drain.
Spread the ricotta topping evenly over the crusts, about 1/4″ thick.
Dollop the spinach evenly around the pizza surface.
Bake until the the crust is crisp and the cheese is a bit browned, about 15 minutes.
Serve warm.
