If I was really Martha Stewart, I would make my own pizza dough from scratch, grow my own spinach and probably even make my own sausage. But... who has time? So, I thank my friend Trader Joe for his help in supplying ingredients.
1 bag TJ's plain pizza dough
1 bag baby spinach (I used about half)
Basil-Pesto Chicken Turkey sausage (I forget the brand name but it comes fully cooked and is about $5 for a pkg of 5 sausages)
Heat oven to 450. Brush about 1 T. (eyeball it like Rachel Ray) onto a pizza pan or baking sheet. Flatten dough and shape into a circle. Spread tomato sauce onto the dough (I used about 1/4 cup)
Rinse and coarsely chop about half the bag of spinach (perhaps about 4 cups?). Pile it on top of the sauce. It will be a tall pile, but it will shrink! Don't worry :)
Chop one sausage and scatter over spinach. Top with mozzarella, then a bit of parmesan. Bake 18-20 minutes; let cool for 3-5.
Serves 4 normal, or 2 famished people
Let me tell you why this pizza is the absolute best. The spinach makes the pizza feel healthy, because you know you are eating lots of greens. Ken said, "should we have salad too?" and I said, "the salad is IN the pizza!" :) One thing I was wondering was if it would be flavorful enough since there is a TON of spinach. But there was enough cheese, super-flavorful sausage and tangy tomato sauce to stand up to the spinach. It was a nice balance.
