Spinach Artichoke White Cheese Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 recipe homemade pizza crust
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic, finely chopped1
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • one 13 ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered2
  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh spinach
  • fresh pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Prepare the pizza dough through step 11, including preheating the oven to 475°F (246°C) as described in step 8.
  2. Mix the olive oil and chopped garlic together in a small dish. After waiting 15 minutes as described in step 11, spread olive oil/garlic mixture on top of crust. Top with 1/4 cup parmesan, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, artichokes, and spinach. Sprinkle the top with remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle more of parmesan, if desired. Season with a little pepper, to taste.
  3. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling. For the last minute, I move the oven rack to the top rack to really brown the edges. That's optional.
  4. Slice pizza and serve immediately. Store leftover pizza covered tightly in the refrigerator and reheat as you prefer.
  5. Make ahead tip: Baked pizza slices may be frozen up to 1 month. Please see homemade pizza crust recipe for how to freeze the pizza dough.

Recipe Notes:

  1. How to roast garlic: slice off the top of a garlic bulb so the cloves are exposed inside. Place, clove side up, in a baking pan or on a baking sheet (I usually use a pie dish) and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Top it with some fresh ground pepper and sea salt. Cover with aluminum foil and roast at 375°F (190°C) for about 35-40 minutes. The cloves will be very soft inside. You will need 3 cloves for this recipe.
  2. I used one 13 ounce bag of frozen artichokes that I let thaw completely and I drained. You may use canned - just drain and quarter beforehand. Anywhere around 13 ounces is fine. Add more/less - whatever you prefer!
