Pizza Night - Pesto Cheese Pizza

This was literally a what do I have in my fridge kinda pizza.  It helped that I had stocked up on tasty cheeses for the tomato pie.

Pesto Cheese Pizza
1 Dough Ball
1/2 cup pesto
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Gruyere cheese
1/3 cup goat cheese
1 pint grape (or cherry) tomatoes
1 bag fresh spinach
1 clove garlic

Stretch the dough out over a cookie sheet coated with olive oil.  Spread the pesto in a thin layer over the dough, it does not take much.  Layer on the mozzarella cheese.  Saute the spinach with some olive oil and garlic.  Once it's wilted, layer over the mozzarella.  The add the rest of the cheese, breaking the goat cheese up into little crumbles, and finally the halve the cherry tomatoes and add to the top.  Bake in a 475 degree oven for about 18 minutes. 

This one is really tasty.  The crust could barely support all the gooey goodness on top.
