Ingredients:  
1 16-oz. loaf of frozen bread dough
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 T water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 10-oz. pkg. frozen spinach
1 tsp. Italian seasoning (I use Good Season's Dry Italian Salad Dressing)
1 slightly beaten egg
1 15-oz. carton of part skim ricotta cheese (I use fat free cottage cheese)
1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 6-oz. pkg. sliced pepperoni
pizza sauce - optional 1 8-oz can (I don't use this)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375.
Place dough on a floured surface, covered, and allow to rest while you prepare the filling. In a skillet, place onion, garlic, and water. Cover and cook until the onion is tender. Add spinach and Italian seasoning; cover and cook until spinach is thawed, stirring once or twice to break up the spinach. Uncover, cook and stir until liquid has evaporated.
Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, combine egg, ricotta, Parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses.
Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch as best you can on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Mix the cheese mixture with the spinach mixture. Line the dough with pepperoni and spoon the spinach and cheese evenly over top. Stretch the edges of the dough together to form a long loaf, pinching it tightly (use a little water to moisten the edges). Prick the top with a fork. Bake for 30 minutes. If using pizza sauce, heat at this time.
