My mom used to make this for casual suppers and family get-togethers. Makes a nice appetizer or a a great meal served with a salad or soup! Plus, it's a great way to get a healthy serving of spinach in! We love it! My mom never used to put cheese on top, but my husband likes it topped with mozzarella cheese!
- 2 (6 ounce) boxes frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup black olives, roughly chopped
- 1⁄2-1 tablespoon salt (to taste)
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1 pizza dough, for one pizza (store bought works great)
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese (optional)
