Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil plus extra for brushing and drizzling
one quantity pizza dough, or a 10 inch pizza base
all purpose flour for dusting
12 ounces spinach
one onion, thinly sliced
6 tablespoons ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoon pine nuts
4 ounces fontina cheese, thinly sliced
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
roll out dough on a lightly floured counter to a 10 inch round. Place on a cookie sheet and push up the edge a little. Cover and let stand in a warm place for 10 minutes.
2
Wash the spinach in cold water and dry well. Heat the oil in a skillet, add the onion and cook until soft and translucent. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted. Remove the skillet from the heat and drain off any liquid.
3
Spread the ricotta cheese evenly over the pizza base, then cover with a spinach and onion mixture. Sprinkle over the nutmeg and pine nuts and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with a slice of fontina and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden sizzling. Serve at once. Serves 2 to 4.
