In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil and add the salt. Whisking constantly, slowly add the polenta. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring, until the polenta starts to pull away from the side of the pan, 8 to 10 minutes.

Spread out the cornmeal mixture on the pan in a circle about 1/3 inch thick and about 12 inches in diameter, building up the edges slightly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust begins to brown.

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the baby greens, red pepper flakes and salt, and sauté 2 minutes, until slightly softened. Remove from heat.

Remove the crust from the oven. Spread marinara sauce over the polenta crust, leaving a border, then layer on the mozzarella, greens and Parmesan cheese. Bake the pizza until the cheese begins to brown in spots, about 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes to set up.
