How to Make Pepperjack Kalamata Pizza


  1. In a medium bowl add flour and cut cold butter into it. Start with 1/4 cup ice water and add more as needed to form a dough, not to stiff. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Remove dough and roll out to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness, place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush crust with evoo.
  3. Mix spinach and cheese together and spread over crust leaving about 1 inch from the edges, drizzle some of the kalamata olive juice over it ( about 1 tablespoon). Spread olives and tomatoes on, drizzle some evoo and kosher salt on top, fold edges over to make a bowl like crust and bake 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden( brush crust with egg wash before baking if you want)
  4. **** If you would like to use other cheeses that would work too, something like smoked provolone , smoked gouda,mozzarella**** If you have a favorite pizza dough you like that can be used too, I just had to make my own tonight or I would have used one lol
