Greek Pizza

Necessity is the Mother of Invention
So... I invented this!

Craving... feta cheese and spinach pizza
Checked 1 recipe, didn't have the ingredients so I made up my own.
Here is what I came up with and I have now deemed it
my current favorite pizza in the world.

1 c mayonnaise
1 1/2 T minced garlic cloves
1 c crumbled feta cheese
8 small cherry tomatoes or 1 roma tomato
1/3 c black olive paste (or chopped black olives, if you can't find the paste)
2 t dried oregano
1 c baby spinach leaves, ripped
1 small red onion, thin sliced
2 T olive oil
1 recipe for homemade pizza dough (below) or a precooked crust of your choice (Boboli)

If using the homemade dough from below you will only need 1 of the 3 doughs it makes. Precook as usual for 12-15 minutes at 425 until golden brown and crisp on the bottom. In the meantime mix the mayonnaise with the garlic and feta cheese. Spread over the baked crust. Mix the thinly sliced tomatoes with the onion and oil. Top the pizza with this and then using your fingers crumble the olive paste over all.

Bake for an additional 4 minutes until heated through and the onions are soft.
