Pizza Boy with Prize Winning Pizza

Contest rules called not only for recipe, but for photos. Too bad I cut off the top and bottom edges. Still looks good, though, doesn't it? I really did enter this in a contest. Three lucky people get to go to Disneyworld with me. (if I win)
Vegetarian Greek Pizza
Yields 6 large pieces

1 Mama Mary’s 12” Gourmet Pizza Crust
1 8 oz. bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1 10 oz. bag of fresh spinach with big stems removed
1 two inch fresh mozzarella ball, sliced in ¼” thick pieces
12 large kalamata pitted olives, sliced (no substitutions!)
2 Tbsp. sliced green onions
6 – 8 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
2-3 Tbsp. blue cheese, crumbled
2 Tbsp. grated orange cheddar cheese
parmesan cheese
cajun seasoning

Preheat oven to 425. Mist entire top of pizza with olive oil. Set crust on perforated pizza pan.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over top of the crust, leaving a rim if you like. (Or not!) Set aside.
In large covered frying pan, saute spinach in 1 Tbs. of olive oil and 2 Tbs. of water, just until wilted. Do not overcook. Remove spinach from frying pan immediately. Drain well and blot dry with paper towels. Chop spinach. Spread chopped spinach over shredded cheese. Set slices of fresh mozzarella on top on spinach. Next add kalamata olives, along with green onions, cherry tomatoes, and crumbled blue cheese. Top with orange cheddar cheese. Sprinkle lightly with parmesan cheese and Cajun seasoning.

Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on rack 5 minutes before cutting.
