Tasty Tuesday: Spinach Artichoke Alfredo Pizza

Not gonna lie, I had all intentions of making this for dinner last night, but after a trip to Costco and the grocery store it was getting too late, so I just picked up a similar frozen version instead. :) Don't judge.


Spinach Artichoke Alfredo Pizza
Picture and recipe found here.
 
This recipe makes one pizza heavy on toppings or two pizzas lighter on the toppings, whichever you prefer.
 
½ pint (1 cup) heavy cream
½ cup butter
2 tbsp cream cheese
¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
6 oz of fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 can of artichoke hearts, rinsed and squeezed dry, roughly chopped
1-2 tubes/recipes of your favorite pizza crust
 
Preheat oven to 425° if you're using homemade dough. If you're using the stuff that comes in a tube, follow the cooking instructions on the label.
 
In a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together the cream, butter, and cream cheese until fully melted.
 
Stir in the parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Continue to cook and stir for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, place spinach in a saute pan with a tablespoon of water over medium high heat and saute until wilted.
 
Once spinach is fully wilted, place it onto a clean kitchen towel and wring out all of the liquid by twisting the towel into a ball with the spinach inside. Once you've squeezed out all of the liquid, add it to the sauce.
 
Spread the sauce over the pizza crust. You might have some left over for dipping depending on how saucy you like your pizza.
 
Place artichoke pieces over sauce then top with mozzarella cheese.
 
Bake for 15 minutes or until you start to see the cheese browning. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.

  1. No judging. Sometimes a frozen pizza is exactly what you need! I've tried Palermos thin crust and they are delicious and not all that bad for you too!
