Heat oven to 425º F. Sprinkle a rimmed baking sheet with the cornmeal. Shape the dough into a 14-inch circle, using this method, and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of the oil and bake until puffed and golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the spinach and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing, for 1 minute.

Ingredients

  1. Check cornmeal for the pan
  2. Check 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen
  3. Check 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Check 2 links Italian sausage, casings removed (about ¾ pound)
  5. Check 1 small bunch spinach, thick stems removed (about 3 cups)
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 1/3 pound thinly sliced provolone
