1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1, 7 oz. package baby spinach

1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
salt and pepper
1 tsp parsley
4 oz mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. parmesan cheese

*Mix ricotta with egg, salt, pepper and parsley.
*Spread ricotta mixture over dough.
*Spread spinach over ricotta.
*Top with parmesan and mozzarella.
