Spinach and taleggio pizza
Ooooooh, this was a good pizza. Taleggio is a kind of Italian stinky cheese; I had a little bit left over from a run to the fancy cheese store, but it was a bit past its prime to eat by itself.
So I started by putting down olive oil, then slices of the taleggio (maybe 1/4 lb). I followed up with a package of thawed frozen chopped spinach, with all the water squeezed out, and the very last of the chicken andouille sausage, maybe half a sausage's worth. Topped it all with mozzarella and parm.
The relative bitterness of the spinach offset the richness of the cheese perfectly. I should have made two.
