Thin Crust Pizza with Garlic Cream Sauce, Spinach, and Charred Tomatoes

One pre-made Thin Pizza Crust from the Bakery section at Wal-Mart
Charred Tomatoes (throw a couple of whole Roma tomatoes in a hot pan and burn them up a little. Until the skin cracks and tomatoes start to become soft)

Garlic Cream Sauce

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8th teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/8th teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1/4th cup Parmesan Reggiano

In a saucepan melt the butter and olive oil together over medium heat. Add the garlic and sautĂ© for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Turn the heat to medium low and add the rest of the ingredients, but add the cheese last so it doesn’t hit the hot pan and seize up. Stir constantly until thickened

Spread 1/2 of sauce on crust, top with spinach and charred tomato, add remaining sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake crust according to instructions on package. I preheated a baking stone in the oven to 450deg. Place pizza on hot stone and bake. I forgot so set the timer so I just watched it closely. You just want the crust to get crispy, the toppings to be warm, and the grated Parmesan to be melted.
