 LOL  THE DOUGH ...
 
3/4  cup unbleached bread flour
salt
One 6 ounce fresh yeast package
4 tblps. warm water
1 tblsp. Evoo
 
THE TOPPING ...

2 large scallions or leeks finely sliced
2 garlic cloves sliced in slivers
1 tblsp. of pinenuts or pistachios or almonds or hazelnuts
1 tblsp. raisins ( golden or brown )
Evoo for drizzle
 
1) sift the flour with a little salt into a large warm bowl
2) dissolve the yeast in the warm water and then stir in the Evoo
3) sprinkle with a little flour and leave it for 15 mins. in a warm place, until frothy
4) make a well in the middle of the flour and drizzle in the yeast mixture
5) knead thoroughly until the dough forms into a ball which leaves the sides of the bowl clean
6) you may require a bit more flour or a bit less
7) form the dough into a smooth ball and drop it back into the bowl and cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and leave in warm place until it has doubled in size ( approx. 1 1/2 to 2 hours )
8) preheat oven to 450 degrees farenheit 
9) knead the dough vigorously to distribute air bubbles
10) slice the dough in quarters and pat out each piece into a disk
11) disk size: size of your palm; or stretch it out, and pat it to fill a baking tray; 1 /2 inch thick
12) spread with a generous amount of shredded spinach, salt lightly, and top with leeks and scallions
13) sprinkle with chopped garlic; and the nuts, and raisins and then, drizzle with Evoo
14) let it sit 10 mins. before placing in oven
15) place in oven and bake 12 mins. - 16 mins. until the crust is puffy and blistered on edges
16) sprinkle with a little more Evoo prior to serving and a simple salad of fresh tomatoes on side
 
Enjoy;
Margi.
