  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until soft, about two minutes. Add spinach and cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in salt, pepper, Parmesan and garlic powder. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza crust into a 10x14 inch rectangle. Spread spinach mixture and mozzarella cheese on top of dough. Starting from on end, roll up the crust to make one large loaf. Pinch seam to seal. Place loaf onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.

This was good, however, incomplete in instructions. The bread DEFINITELY needs to rest at least 10-15 min after baking. Otherwise, you're slicing mush. Good without the spinach and just pepperoni and cheese instead.

I did not care for this...(sorry). I took it to a get-together and no one ate it. I will probably try it again, but next time I will add some ingredients, maybe roll the dough in butter, garlic and parmesan before baking and add some seasoning to the inside.

Truth be told, I don't think it gets all that much easier. If I were making this for appetizers I would likely make two or three loaves because I didn't get a ton out of it, but since I was serving it as a dinner side, it worked out wonderfully. Really easy, and just as good as the spinach bread I get at pizzerias here in upstate NY, and much cheaper! I highly recommend this one.

Excellent! I sprinkled additional grated parmesan on top right before baking. Yummy!

Delicious! I only had monteray jack cheese, and that was fine. I also sprinkled in a little bit of oregano to the mix. I used a 13.5 oz. can of pizza crust, and it worked out ok, but I know if I'd used the 10 oz. can as suggested, the ingredients would have been better distributed. I used fresh spinach and it was gone within two hours between the three of us.

Absolutely Delicious and so much easier than the way my Italian Grandma used to make it. My husband and I tried to make his mom's spinach bread a few times but we had too much trouble working with yeast.It is such a pleasure to work with ready made dough. Why not do it the easy way. Still the same great italian flavor we both remembered as children. You can't go wrong here.

I've pretty much been making this recipe for years. However 2 things will greatly improve the taste - homemade pizza dough (very easy if you own a breadmaker) instead of store-bought and fresh chopped spinach instad of frozen. I've tried it both ways and the fresh and homemade items make a world of difference! Great vegeterian dish.
