1    15 ounce can  tomato sauce
3    tablespoons   grated Parmesan cheese
2    tablespoons   tomato paste
3/4   teaspoon   dried oregano, crushed
1/2   teaspoon   dried basil, crushed
1/8   teaspoon   crushed red pepper
1    5 - 6 ounce package  fresh baby spinach
2    teaspoons   water
    Olive oil
1    pound   frozen pizza or bread dough, thawed
8    ounces   bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
1 1/2 - 2    cups   shredded mozzarella cheese (6 to 8 ounces)
    Crushed red pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. In a small bowl combine tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, the tomato paste, oregano, basil, and the 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper. Set aside.
Place spinach in a large microwave-safe bowl; sprinkle with the 2 teaspoons water. Cover with a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds. Continue cooking in 10-second intervals just until spinach is wilted. Let stand for 2 minutes; carefully remove plate. Transfer spinach to a sieve; press out excess liquid.
Brush a 12-inch cast-iron or other heavy oven-going skillet with oil; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll pizza dough into a 14-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared skillet. Roll edges to form a rim. Brush dough lightly with oil. Spread tomato sauce mixture over dough; top with sausage and spinach. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.
Cook pizza in skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Place skillet in oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust and cheeses are lightly browned. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Using a spatula, slide pizza out of skillet. Cut into wedges. If desired, sprinkle with additional crushed red pepper.
