16 oz loaf frozen bread dough, thawed (I just use my pizza dough recipe)
2-10 oz pkgs frozen chopped spinach
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp butter
1 beaten egg
1 15 oz carton ricotta cheese
2/3 cup grated Parmesan (preferably fresh)
1 8 oz can pizza sauce
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
How to prepare
Let dough rise according to pkg directions; punch down. Grease a 13×9 baking pan, roll dough into 14×10 rectangle and pat into pan going up 1 inch on sides. Prick bottom and sides of dough – bake 425 degrees about 10 min. , cool.
Meanwhile, cook spinach, drain well. Saute onion in butter; combine egg, ricotta, Parmesan, spinach and onion – spread over crust. Pour pizza sauce over all, sprinkle mozzarella on top and bake at 375 degrees about 15-20 minutes. (actually, I never saute the onion – I just add it raw)
The whole thing can be frozen if you leave off the mozzarella – you bake it frozen at 375 degrees for 60-65 minutes, then top with mozzarella and bake about 10 minutes more or until cheese melts. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
