A couple of weeks ago, I was headed to London for just 2 days. It wasn't going to be a big deal of a trip but I wanted to run into a few shops in our area to get some last minute clothes, books, etc. We had been out for most the morning and so we treated ourselves to a little pizza place only a few blocks from home.
We hardly ever eat there but it is John's favorite pizza in the neighborhood. He ordered a spinach and artichoke slice that was absolutely incredible! When he had demolished it, and I had destroyed the small piece he gave me, I thought it wouldn't be that hard to replicate at home. Friday nights are pizza nights in our house so it wasn't even a full week since we had sampled the slice that I had figured out a way to make our own! And it was so easy, John's not letting me make any excuses for making it again and again!
3 ounces cream cheese
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 cup marinated artichokes
1 handmade pizza dough
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small food processor, combine cream cheese, spinach, and artichokes until fully combined. Roll pizza dough out onto a greased pizza pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top. Top evenly with mozzarella cheese. Then, lightly sprinkle red pepper flakes, italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
Bake 13-15 minutes until the top just starts to brown. Serve immediately. To store leftovers, place in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
