Greek white pizza!

Preheat your oven as hot as it will go – mine pretends to go up to 500°, but I’ve never seen it hit anything past 475°.

Take your favorite pizza dough – store bought is fine, homemade is better – and make sure you give it time to come up to room temperature if it’s been refrigerated or frozen. This time I used Mollie Katzen’s recipe from The Enchanted Broccoli Forest, but I think I prefer Heidi Swanson’s recipe from Cook 1.0. Spread the dough out to the desired shape and size on a pizza pan, cookie sheet, or pizza peel if you plan to cook directly on a pizza stone. You can brush the edge of the dough with olive oil if you want the crust to brown better.

Make a white (er, um, green) sauce. Sauté a tablespoon of minced onions and two cloves of minced garlic in some olive oil and butter until they’re soft and starting to brown a bit. Add some cream (about a 1/2 cup, maybe) and let it come to a boil. Add a few handfuls of frozen spinach and cook until it’s thawed and thoroughly integrated into the sauce. Add a handful or two of Parmesan or mozzarella cheese and cook until the sauce thickens a bit. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow to cool some.

Spread the sauce over the pizza dough, almost to the edge. Sprinkle some chopped sun dried tomatoes over the sauce. Top with a generous layer of feta cheese.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust is cooked and the cheese is melted. Let it cool for a few minutes then slice and dig in. Mmm . . .
