Spinach, sausage, and provolone pizza

I got this recipe from my Real Simple magazine (Oct '09). It's quick, easy and delicious! The recipe says to buy pizza dough to make the crust, but I just bought a pre-made, Boboli pizza crust to save some time. I also added some extra vegetables (mushrooms, grape tomatoes, onions, and basil) for variation. I've already made this pizza a few times since it's such a crowd pleaser. :) It's seriously super easy to make! Here's the recipe...
  • 1 Boboli pizza crust
  • 2 links Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 small bunch of spinach (I used a bag of pre-washed spinach)
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced provolone (I love Jewel's provolone. It's light, not strong like Dominick's.)
  • vegetables of your choice
Heat oven to 425°F. Cook the sausage in a large pan, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onions, mushrooms, and spinach until cooked through about 2 minutes. Top the pizza crust with a layer of cheese, the sausage mixture, and halved grape tomatoes (optional.) Bake until the crust is crisp and the cheese has melted, 12-15 minutes.

Please excuse the partially cooked spinach. These photos are from the first time I made this. I added a few extra leaves of spinach right before popping it into the oven...thinking they would cook. Umm...that didn't quite work out. But it still tasted yummy!
