Spinach Pizza

The go to meal at our house is always, my favorite, pizza. My local supermarket has fresh pizza dough ready to purchase that turns out light and crispy especially if you cook it on a pizza stone. Having pizza delivered at home can sometimes take 40 to 50 minutes, and on a busy day like Friday forgetaboutit.  For about the same amount of time, you can have delicious homemade pizza and it might even be healthier.

Spinach and Artichoke Pesto Pizza

1 package prepared pizza dough
1/4 cup prepared pesto
1 1/2 cup chopped baby spinach
1 cup quartered marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend

Preheat oven to 400┬║.

Turn dough out onto floured surface. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle a little flour on top. Roll dough out into about a 16 inch rectangle, place on greased cookie sheet. Press with your fingers if necessary to spread out in pan.
Spread pesto on dough with the back of a spoon or a spatula. Top with spinach, artichokes, then cheese.

Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes, cheese should be melted to a golden brown.

After removing from oven, let it sit for 3-4 minutes before slicing.

  1. I'm on lunch, just had split pea soup I made on Sunday ~ it was good ~ but then I saw the picture of your pizza and I want one! Now!

  2. Oh no! That's how I feel when I watch Food Network shows late at night :o)

  3. Thanks! I'm slowly getting my daughter to move over to the "green" side and with this pizza she is at least trying it.
