Weeknight Dinner: Spinach-Artichoke Pizza

Print Friendly and PDF
The weekends are relaxing times for me, mostly.  I like to take half the day Saturday, go to the library, read a book, generally relax.  I usually make a big dinner on Saturday and call that a win.  We often are able to have leftovers from the week for lunch on Saturdays, but not always.

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!
Spinach-Artichoke Pizza
Serves:  4
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.

  2. This NFL Flag for Tennessee Titans is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpoles or any of our tailgate pole systems. The perimeter of our NFL Flag for Tennessee Titans is double stitched and the team logos are screen printed into the flag so they won't peel.
