Garlicky Spinach and Chorizo Pizza

We got some spinach at Winter Fare (yay, fresh greens!), and I've had some chorizo from Hager Brothers Farm in the freezer waiting for a good recipe. You can also get chorizo from Not Your Ordinary Farm in Guilford, VT - often available at the Greenfield Farmers Coop.

1 14-inch pizza crust
olive oil
1/3 lb chorizo
3-4 oz shredded mozzarella
1/4 lb fresh spinach, stemmed and rinsed
6-8 cloves garlic, minced

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Paint the pizza crust lightly with olive oil.

Slice the chorizo into 1/4-inch rounds and fry until done. Drain off the excess oil.

Spread half the cheese over the pizza crust, then top with spinach (it will be generously covered). Spread the chorizo over the spinach, then sprinkle with garlic. Top with the remaining mozzarella.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crust is done and the cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-5.
