Dawne's notes for this recipe:
Every Sunday, when we had company, my mother would whip this pizza together within minutes. My sisters and I would sit and watch, sometimes not so patiently, for it to come out of the oven. She would make a slightly different version of it every time but it always started with spinach. Such wonderful memories and tasty recipes past down for all of us.

Perfect for a hearty appetizer or a main dish! The hot Italian sausage adds a zip without being too hot... Simply yummy.


Cut dough in half then roll out into a rectangle. Place on cookie sheet rubbed with olive oil until ready to fill. Pre-heat oven to 400.
In a large skillet brown sausage. When sausage is cooked put a Tble Olive oil in pan and saute drained spinach. Add seasoning except for Basil If you want Tomatoes in your recipe add them now.
Divide Provolone cheese side by side on lower half of dough (long way). Divide spinach mixture between the dough on top of provolone. Spinkle with grated cheese and mozzarella. Fold other half of dough over filling and press to seal edges.
Rub top of dough with Olive oil and sprinkle with Basil and grated paresan cheese. Bake until dough is golden brown, about 30-40 min. Let sit 5-10 minutes before slicing. Cut in 2 inch slices short way. Enjoy.

I take some of these recipes from Just a Pinch up to NJ to visit my daughter and try them out up there. I know they will love this one, it sounds as good as the Antipasto Squarees by Gail Herbest.
