Ingredients
for the pizza
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup nuts (I used pecans or try walnuts, pine nuts or almonds) chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled & minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4-6 medium strips cooked bacon
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 ball pizza dough
for the dough
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (or one packet) active dry yeast
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for rolling
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions
for the pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place spinach, pecans, olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender and mix together until well combined and spinach is completely blended. Roll out or hand toss dough onto a well greased pizza pan. Spread spinach pesto out evenly onto the dough, leaving about 1/2" around the outer edges. Next sprinkle half of the cheese around the pizza, top with crumbled bacon strips and top with the remaining cheese.
  2. Place into the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. Once slightly golden on the outside and the cheese is fully melted, remove from the oven and serve.
for the pizza dough
  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast for 5 minutes in the warm water. Then add flour, olive oil, sugar and salt. Mix until blended and then knead for about 10 minutes either by hand or in your mixer with the dough hook on low. Check dough to see if it's smooth, elastic and not sticking to the bowl. Add a touch more flour if needed to prevent sticking, then transfer dough into a lightly olive oil coated bowl and cover with plastic wrap or towel and place in a warm place. Let rise until doubled in size. About 1 1/2 hours. Dough can be used right away or placed into a plastic bag and refrigerated for up to a week.
