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.
