Sorta Torta Rustica

The highlight of my day was making this super-stuffed pizza pie, and then coming up with a title for this post. This says a lot about my life right now.

Sorta Torta Rustica
Roll out pizza dough (ready made is obviously fine). Spray bottom and sides of springform pan with Pam. Cut 3/4 of dough and place in springform pan so that it covers the bottom and sides.
In a skillet, heat 1 tsp. olive oil and cook 1 chopped onion, 1 c. sliced mushrooms, 2 cloves chopped garlic. When onions are soft add a package of soy crumbles and a jar of pasta sauce. Stir until sauce bubbles. Spoon onto pizza dough.
Drain a package of thawed spinach, squeezing out as much liquid as you can. In a bowl combine spinach, an egg, and 1/4-1/2 c. grated parmesan. Spoon spinach on top of the soy crumble layer.
Then mix together 1 c. ricotta cheese and 1 c. shredded mozzarella. Top spinach layer with this ricotta layer. Place remaining dough over pie, cutting any excess dough. Place in oven at 350F, bake until crust becomes golden.
