Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I’m hosting Vindicate the Vegetable this week and plan on eating spinach almost every night. Luckily, hubby and I love spinach. Since starting this blog, I’ve made pizza with spinach, spinach balls, pasta with spinach, chicken stuffed with spinach, and another pasta with spinach.

To kick off the week, I decided to make the spinach-artichoke pizza. I got the idea when I saw this post in my Google reader. I figured it would be perfect for us because we love spinach-artichoke dip as much as anyone else. We love to try it at new restaurants that we go to.
I loosely followed Ashlee’s recipe and it turned out great. It definitely tasted very much like the dip. If you’re a fan of spinach-artichoke dip, definitely try this pizza!

Spinach-Artichoke Pizza1 pizza crust – I used Pillsbury
1 4oz. log of herbed goat cheese
1 red onion, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
10 oz. fresh spinach – I only had 6 oz
1 can of artichokes in water, chopped or quartered
ΒΌ cup grated italian blend cheese – I used shredded sheep cheese
Tomatoes, chopped
Crushed red pepper flakes – I omitted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Roll pizza dough out into sheet pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, or until almost cooked.

While crust cooks, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil with garlic. Add onions and caramelize over medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper.

Add spinach to pan to wilt.
Remove crust from the oven, and use a spatula to smear it all over.

Top with onions and spinach, artichokes, and finally cheese. Bake for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted. Remove, sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes and tomatoes.

      I’m not a fan of stuffing either (technically this is dressing since it’s cooked outside the bird), but this stuff is a meal in itself. We could not stop eating it.

    This stuffing was hands down the best I have ever eaten! I had every intention of watching my diet and portions during Thanksgiving but couldn’t resist a second helping of the stuffing!

      Glad you liked it so much πŸ™‚ I completely agree. When Hubby and I first tasted it, we were hooked. I’ll never try another stuffing recipe.
