This is an absolute hit at my house. My family loves CiCi's, so I tried one of my own. YUMMY!

Put a twist on your next pizza night with this spinach pizza. If you love Alfredo sauce, then you'll love this. Think super creamy creamed spinach on top of pizza dough with a ton of cheese on top. Yum! You could even use this sauce over pasta. As a variation, try adding herbs - such as rosemary or oregano - to the pizza dough.
