This is my favourite pizza recipe. It is so easy to throw together and ready in a snap. This is my kind of comfort food with the tempting flavours of spinach artichoke dip in a form of a pizza!


2 tablespoons butter
6 – 8 canned artichoke hearts, drained well and quartered (don’t use marinated)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
16 ounces pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (1/2 c.)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 clove garlic, minced
4 ounces provolone cheese (1 c. I used deli slices and chopped)
2 ounces finely shredded Parmesan cheese (lightly packed 1/2 c.)
3/4 c. milk
8 ounces fresh spinach, divided
Red pepper flakes, for serving (optional)4
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

How to make Spinach Artichoke Pizza

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 450 degrees. In the preheated oven, place the pizza stone and let it rest in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Step 2: Over a sheet of parchment paper, stretch and shape the pizza dough to a 13-inch round, also creating a taller rim along the outer edge.

Step 3: Brush the pizza dough with 1 tbsp olive oil and lightly season the crust with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

Step 4: Heat the rest of the 1 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 3/4 of the spinach to the pan once the oil is hot and saute until just wilted. Place the wilted spinach on a layer of paper towels and gently press the excess liquid out. Then, coarsely chop the spinach and set it aside.

Step 5: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the flour into the melted butter along with the onion powder. Cook for about 2 minutes while stirring. While slowly stirring, add the milk and adjust the heat to medium-high heat. Continue to cook until the mixture has thickened, stirring. To taste, season with salt and pepper. When done, take off the heat and stir in the minced garlic and the spinach.

Step 6: Chop the rest of the fresh spinach and set it aside.

Step 7: Over the pizza crust, evenly spread the spinach béchamel sauce (the white sauce). Make sure to leave the rim uncoated. On top, sprinkle the chopped, fresh spinach, then the provolone, mozzarella, Parmesan cheeses, and chopped artichokes.

Step 8: Under parchment paper, slide a pizza peel and very carefully place the pizza to the hot pizza stone in the oven. Bake the pizza for about 10 to 13 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

Step 9: To serve, slice into pieces and if desired, sprinkle with some red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
