Pizza Friday

We had one pizza dough left in the freezer but not much mozzarella cheese, so I had to improvise for Pizza Friday last week. I knew we had some frozen spinach in the freezer so I thought I'd make a white pizza:


I defrosted the spinach, rung it dry in a kitchen towel and then sauteed it with some chopped shallot, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg. I mixed the spinach with some leftover ricotta cheese and spread it over the rolled-out dough, then topped the pizza with mozzarella cheese.

If you notice the last few pizzas have had a ton of bubbles in them. I'm not overworking the dough - I barely roll it out - so I think we just got an airy batch of dough. This one was the worst though...it looked like an alien pizza and the pieces with the bubbles were separating. In theory this pie should have been great, but it just didn't hit the spot. We're definitely a tomato sauce on pizza family.
