Spinach & Artichoke Pesto Pizza


So not only is this recipe completely outside my box because I came up with it as I was wandering through Trader Joe's, but it also has spinach and artichokes on it - and it's not in a dip! This could very easily be my new favorite pizza and it was pretty easy to make, too!

I got everything from Trader Joe's which meant that it was super quick, fresh & easy!

Start to Eating & Enjoying: 24 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 4 oz of fresh spinach

  • 1 Tbsp butter

  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

  • 1/8-1/4 tsp salt, to taste

  • Pizza Dough (I got the "Plain" Trader Joe's pre-made dough)

  • 2 oz mozzarella cheese, grated

  • 1/4 cup of Artichokes (I got the marinated artichokes & they were delicious!)

  • 1-2 tsp pesto

  • a pinch of red pepper flakes (or more than a pinch if you like spice!)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F. (this is according to the Pizza Dough bag - check your dough for cooking instructions).

  2. Chop spinach and mince garlic.

  3. Heat a deep pan to medium-high heat with butter.

  4. Add garlic and spinach and sauté until wilted.

  5. Add heavy cream, parmesan, and salt and reduce heat to simmer, stirring frequently to thicken for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

  6. Spread spinach mixture onto your dough and top with pesto, mozzarella cheese, & red pepper flakes.

  7. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes depending on the pizza dough.

  8. Enjoy!
