Ingredients

  • 1 pre-made dough can also use a frozen crust
  • 4 tbsp pizza sauce jarred
  • 8 oz mozzarella fresh or bagged
  • cup parmesan cheese grated
  • ¾ cup flour

Toppings (optional)

  • 6 oz spinach fresh
  • 1 cup onion chopped, cooked
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475
  • If you're topping your pizza with the onion and spinach, in a large pan, heat the olive oil.  Once heated, add the garlic and cook for 30 secs or 1 min until fragrant.  Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft, then add the spinach.  Toss for 5 minutes until wilted.  Set aside.
  • Sprinkle flour on a flat surface (i.e. cutting board) - add the dough and move it around so it's fully covered with the flour
  • Start kneading the dough with the bottom of your palm for about 5 minutes until the dough starts stiffening up (continue to add flour to the board and your hands so they don't stick to the dough).
  • Once the dough is kneaded, start to spread the dough out - let gravity do the work when possible.
  • Once the dough is in a nice circular shape, add your pasta sauce to the middle of the dough.  Using the back of a spoon, spread the sauce evenly around the dough in a circular motion.
  • Once the sauce is on, add your cheese evenly across the pie
  • If you're adding the spinach and onion, add it now.
  • Sprinkle the pie with the grated parmesan cheese
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly crispy
