1.  [For Sauce]

2.  In a medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic to pan cook just until fragrant. Take care not to burn.

3.  Using a slotted spoon, scoop tomatoes out of can and place in pan, reserving juices. Crush tomatoes with the back of spoon or a masher. I like a potato masher best :D

4.  Add juice, salt, and oregano to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes or until thickened.

5.  [For Crust]

6.  Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups and spoons; level with a knife. Add flour, salt and yeast to large bowl. Add olive oil to one side of bowl. Slowly add in water and stir with wooden spoon to combine.

7.  Once dough comes together, place on lightly floured counter and knead to form soft elastic dough. Place dough in large bowl lightly coated with olive oil. Gently roll dough around bowl to coat. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

8.  Press or roll dough out to a rectangle on a lightly floured counter-top.

9.  Place a pizza stone on middle rack. Preheat oven to 500°.

10.  When oven has come to set temperature, remove hot stone from oven. Lightly dust with cornmeal.

11.  Carefully place dough on hot stone.

12.  Top with pizza sauce, do not too much juice or pizza will be soggy, leave a 1/2 inch border. Arrange spinach leaves evenly over pizza. Top with grated provolone cheese and parmesan cheese evenly over pizza.

13.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the crust is browned.

14.  Cut pizza into 12 pieces, and serve.
