Spinach pizza
It was new to me so I will share. My wife found a pizza that I was skeptical about but we tried it anyway. It was extremely good, drizzle olive oil over bare dough, stack about 2" of raw spinach leaves, add fresh sliced garlic and top with a mound of freshly grated parmesan cheese. We did another drizzle of olive oil over the top. It was a total flavor explosion.

Re: Spinach pizza
My brother did a similar pizza but in a conventional oven (long before my Pompeii as even planned. It was built with around 2-3" of stacked spinach leaves, some tomatoes, garlic, onion rings and cheeses and was delicious.
One needs to experiment, I personally can never see my dough base through my toppings which are all cooked through and give a complete meal in one 10" pizza.

Spinach pizza sounds good. I'm doing this tonight.

They came out pretty good. I did 3 different variations and they all came out good. I will do this on a pan or screen next time as the spinach & toppings were too loose to handle using a peel.
Here's one I did where most of the topping stayed

Looks amazing, try it with the grated parm next time. It has a nice nutty/salty kick.

Yes, I also did one with grated parm and had a better taste. In fact, spinach pizza will be included in every pizza session from now on. Thanks! :D

Re: Spinach pizza
Update to this recipe... add some thin strips of pancetta. Oh yea, takes it to a whole other level.

I made one last night. I wanted to put some diced prosciutto on it, but this was a test pizza for a vegetarian guest I am having this week, so I didn't.

I started with baby spinach and white onion, sliced into slivers, then added Swiss cheese, also slivered, some EVOO and oregano, then added some garden variety Parmesan. I mixed this up in a bowl (pic 1), then par-baked the crust and sauced it with ranch dressing and more Parmesan (pic 2). I let it cook out for about 6 minutes in the 550 degree kitchen oven, then gave it a 2 minute shot of broiler.
