Three Cheese Pizza with Spinach

Number of Servings
    • 1 pound refrigerated fresh pizza dough
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 6 cups fresh baby spinach
    • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    • 2 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup)
    • ½ cup Romano cheese, grated
    • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat milk
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 tablespoon cornmeal

Remove the dough from refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature, covered, for 30 minutes. Place a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 500° (keep pizza stone or  baking sheet in oven as it preheats). Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and sliced garlic in a large skillet. Heat over medium-high heat 1 1/2 minutes or until the garlic begins to sizzle. Add 6 cups spinach; sauté 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Set aside. Combine cheeses, milk, and minced garlic in a bowl. Roll dough into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface, and pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Carefully remove pizza stone from oven. Sprinkle cornmeal over pizza stone; place dough on pizza stone. Spread cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Bake at 500° for 10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is lightly browned. Top with spinach; bake an additional 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from oven; brush outer crust with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Cut into 6 large slices.
