Spinach Artichoke Pizza

Spinach Artichoke Pizza - One of the best pizzas I’ve ever made. Yes, it was that good.

Summary: One of the best pizzas I’ve ever made. Yes, it was that good. The crust is perfectly golden and crisp on the outside, it’s then covered with a thin layer of olive oil followed by a generous layer of a thick béchamel sauce which is loaded with sautéed spinach, then that is layered with a fair amount of fresh spinach after which three varieties of cheeses are sprinkled evenly over the top (which melt together so well and create that gooey, stretchy cheese that every pizza should have), and of course it’s finished off with the crowning jewels, plenty of artichoke hearts which roast to perfection.

Ingredients:

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

  1. This spinach artichoke pizza is ABSOLUTELY incredible! I think next Friday I will make two of these and will add chicken to at least one of them. And I would like to try adding bite size pieces of broiled asparagus in place of artichokes on one of them. The sauce is incredible. I fell in love with spinach pizza years ago at a little c c’s pizza. This is off the scale.
