1 store bought pizza dough

1 1/2 cups marinara sauce


Preheat oven to 425.

Bring 1/4 cup water to a boil in large skillet.Add half the spinach and wilt. Remove from pan and drain. Repeat with remaining spinach. Cool and squeeze out as much water as possible. Coarsely chop and add to large bowl.

In same skillet, heat evoo. Cook sausage until brown. Add onions and cook until soft. Transfer to bowl with spinach. Stir in cheese and season with pepper and salt.
