White Cheese Pizza w/ Shrimp & Spinach

flour, for dusting
1 ball prepared pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
garlic cream sauce (recipe below)
1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup steamed spinach
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deviened, cut in half, lengthwise (I seasoned the shrimp with a little old bay seasoning)

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees

Flour your hands and work surface liberally. Knead dough and roll out using a rolling pin, to approximately 12-14 inches in diameter. Place on lightly floured baking sheet (I have a round one I use or you can use a pizza stone). Lightly brush the dough with the olive oil. Bake in oven for 5-6 min.

While dough is in the oven, mix the ricotta cheese with pepper and Italian seasoning

Remove dough from oven and brush with the garlic cream sauce. Spread the sauce over the dough, leaving 1/4 inch around for your crust. Then spread the ricotta cheese on top of the garlic cream sauce, using the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Then top with the spinach and shrimp, spreading evenly.

Place the pizza in the oven to bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown and bubbly. Leave pizza in oven for additional time if you want a crispier crust.

Remove pizza from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm and enjoy.

Cream Sauce -
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
pinch salt and pepper

In a small saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Then add the garlic and stir for 1-2 minutes. Add the heavy cream, lower to medium low heat and let simmer, approximately 5 minutes, until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
