Garlic Spinach Pizza

This recipe has been waiting to post  Not sure why it took me so long to get it up.  Gray and I both really enjoyed this!  This recipe is slightly adapted from Recipes, Food and Cooking.

4 - 5 garlic cloves (roasted and minced)
4 oz. cream cheese
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

9 oz bag fresh spinach
Easy Thin Crust Pizza Dough or dough of your choice
Monterey Jack Cheese

Roll out the pizza crust and begin to prebake at the appropriate temperature for that dough, if necessary.

Melt the butter in a pan. Whisk in the flour then add the roasted garlic.   Add the milk and stir until the mixture begins to thicken.  Stir in the cream cheese, salt and pepper.  When the cream cheese is melted, remove from heat and stir in the parmesan cheese.   Steam the spinach until it is just wilted then add to the sauce.

Once the crust is ready, spread the spinach sauce over the crust.  Top with Monterey Jack and bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the pizza is done.
