Tonight’s white pizza calls on the classic, comforting flavors of creamed spinach. Ricotta cheese and fromage blanc give the spinach its characteristic silkiness, while scallions and garlic add a bit of piquancy. On the side, a warm salad of nutty sautéed cauliflower gets a fragrant lift from fresh oregano, whose savoriness balances sweet, juicy bites of clementine. (Chefs, chopping your spinach very finely after cooking it allows you to more easily spread it onto the dough.)

2 Cook & drain the spinach:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a strainer; hold or rest over a bowl. Using a spoon, press down to release as much liquid as possible. Transfer to a cutting board and finely chop. Wipe out the pan.

In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic; cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Transfer to a large bowl.

4 Make the topping & prepare the dough:

Wipe out the pan. Transfer the chopped spinach to the bowl of cooked aromatics. Stir in the fromage blanc and ricotta cheese; season with salt and pepper to taste. On a clean, dry work surface, using your hands and a rolling pin (or a wine bottle), gently stretch and roll the dough to a ¼-inch thickness. (If the dough is resistant, let rest for 5 minutes.) Carefully transfer to a lightly oiled sheet pan; rub the dough into the pan to coat the bottom in oil.

5 Assemble & bake the pizza:

Evenly spread the topping onto the prepared dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Season with salt and pepper.
