In my younger days I used to live on Federal Hill in Providence and often (more than I frankly should have) went to Caserta Pizza for a spinach pie they called a "Wimpy Skippy" for some reason. They are a piece of pizza dough slathered with a helping of very overcooked spinach seasoned with olive oil, garlic and black olives with a liberal amount of pepperoncino (crushed red pepper). I have tried to make them myself and I could never get the technique right. Well, I was just dying for one of those damned things so I thought I'd look on the good old Internet and see if anyone had posted a recipe for them and sure enough I found one. So I whipped up a batch of those tonight and have just wolfed one right down. Delizioso! The method is below as well as the recipe. Make these.. You'll love them!
|Mix the filling ingredients and schmear it on 1/2 of the dough|
|Cover with the other half of the dough, brush with olive oil and bake|
|After first bake, open the dough and allow to cool completely|
|Top with mozzarella and pepperoni, leave flat and bake again|
|After they come out of the oven fold over the dough again, leaving the spinach filling on the bottom|
|(I baked mine again for 5 minutes to crisp them up)|
|The finished product and tastes as good as I remembered too!|
