Abate's White Spinach Pie

Abate's White Spinach Pie
Pizza dough
Bag of baby spinach
2 cloves garlic
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
Mozzarella
Lemon wedges

This dish is an ode to Abate's Restaurant in New Haven. Not a well-known pizza place considering the famous Pepe's Pizza is down the street, but they make the best spinach pie EVER! My mom and I always stop for lunch whenever we're in the vicinity. There's no sauce and they serve it with lemon wedges. Sounds strange, but the lemon brings this pizza to a whole new level. I am going to try my best to recreate this for our pizza night.

Preheat the oven to 425. Quickly saute baby spinach with some salt, pepper and garlic in some olive oil until just wilted. Roll out the dough and coat with a drizzle olive oil and spread the spinach and garlic mixture evenly. Top with thick slices of mozzarella cheese and bake until the crust is brown and the cheese is bubbly. Serve with a little Parmesan cheese and a lemon wedge.

The verdict: It is possible to enjoy one of my favorite dishes, without the long drive!
