pimientos on top of spinach and top with remaining cheese. Arrange the
pepperoni on top of the cheese layer. Top with olive halves. Cover filling
with reserved dough and crimp edges of dough to seal. Cut slits in top of
dough to allow steam to escape. Bake 50 minutes or until crust is well
browned (if crust browns too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil).
