Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until golden, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach, salt and pepper to taste, raisins and pine nuts, if desired, and toss until the spinach is thoroughly coated and flavorful. Transfer the spinach mixture to a colander and let drain.
  3. To make 2 large pies, divide the pizza dough into two equal rounds. Roll out one round into a 14-inch circle. Spread 1 tablespoon of the oil over the dough and place half the spinach mixture onto half of the rolled out dough. Fold the dough over the mixture to form a half moon, and seal the edges with the tines of a fork. Repeat with the remaining ball of dough. To make 8 small pies, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, rolling them each into a 4- to 5-inch circle and dividing the spinach mixture equally among them. Fold and seal as directed above.
  4. Transfer the pies to an oiled rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the crust is lightly golden. Remove from the oven, cut into slices, and serve.
  5. Makes 2 large pies or 8 small pies.

This is great! We are a family of spinach lovers, and this was a great combination. The filling could be eaten without any sort of dough on the outside. We made a half-recipe and actually made a regular pizza out of the rest of the dough. It solved the biggest problem I have with pizza night, the lack of leafy green vegies. Everyone ate this with gusto and loved it to pieces! Thanks for the recipe, it'll be a regular on pizza night!

This tasty pie is truly surprising; small number of ingredients, but they deliver. I didn't use the raisins (I was out) but did use the pine nuts and took the easy way, using frozen spinach and ready-to-use store-bought pizza dough. Makes this a snap to prepare. I'm impressed! Served this with Mimi's Josephine's Tuna Pasta Salad #127147 and the combination was excellent. Thanks for posting!
