Spinach & Feta Pizza with Garlic Crust

It's pizza time! Want to eat something that's easy-peasy and not too filling? Give this a try. Recipe creates 4 individual sized pizzas.

Spinach & Fetta Pizza with Garlic Crust

1 can Pillsbury pizza dough thin crust
(They also have the classic style, if you want a thicker crust.)
1 small box or bag of frozen spinach (defrosted)
2 c crumbled Feta Cheese
4 sandwich-sized slices of swiss cheese (I used Tillamook)
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
Garlic Powder

Preheat oven 400˚F

Unroll pizza crust onto a baking sheet and divide dough into 4 squares. If not using a silpat, be sure to grease sheet before placing the dough or put it on parchment paper.

Place one slice of swiss at the center of each dough. This will prevent the middle of the dough from becoming soggy.

Make sure you squeeze out the excess water from the spinach and then place over the swiss cheese leaving one inch from the edge for the crust. Then sprinkle over the crumbled feta.

For the crust, brush the olive oil on the one inch edge left untouched then liberally sprinkle garlic powder over on top. (Garlic bread anyone??)

Bake for 10-12 min (until dough is golden brown)

When you bite into it, you'll get a nice crisp thin garlic crust and a string of swiss when you reach the filling.
