How to make Goat Cheese and Spinach Pizza:

For the Dough:

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. If using a pizza stone, be sure to put it in the oven before you turn on the heat. Click for a pizza stone.

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm (110 degree F) water. The temperature is right when it just barely feels warm to your finger. Water that is too hot will kill the yeast.

Let the yeast mixture stand for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.

Add the flour, olive oil and salt and stir together (or use a stand mixer with the dough hook) until a soft dough forms. If the dough is to wet mix in an additional flour a teaspoon at a time until it is no longer sticky. If it’s too dry, mix in additional water a teaspoon at a time.

Roll the dough into a ball and let it rest about 5 minutes while you gather your pizza toppings.

On a clean floured surface roll the dough to about a 12 inch wide circle.

Spray the pizza pan or stone with non-stick spray. Place the dough on the pizza pan or pizza stone.

For the Sauce:

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, place the olive oil and the minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly so the garlic doesn’t brown.
