Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza

Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza Recipe on My all-time favorite pizza!

Remember the Spinach Basil Pesto recipe we posted on Monday? Well, we used that pesto to make the most amazing pizza ever-Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza. I am head over heels in love with this pizza. I loved it so much that I told Josh we could have pizza every day for dinner, if it was Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza. He said he was game! We both loved this pizza! And guess what? So did our little pea! This pizza was a hit all around!

To make the pizza, start with your favorite pizza dough. We love our homemade pizza dough recipe, but if we are short on time we like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods refrigerated pizza doughs. They are great options if you are in a pinch! We used our Nut-Free Spinach Basil Pesto for the pizza sauce. We spread it evenly on the dough. I love the green sauce!

Next, we topped the pizza with chopped fresh spinach, artichokes, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese.

We baked the pizza until the cheese was melted and the crust was golden brown.

The perfect pie! Josh cut the pizza into slices and we had a family pizza party! Caleb kept asking for more! I am glad my guys loved this veggie pizza as much as I did!

I really can’t express enough love for this Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza. It is seriously one of the best pizzas I’ve ever eaten…and I’ve had a lot of pizza in my days. Make it, eat it, love it!

    What a splendid pizza! I love that choice of toppings.

    I love spinach & artichoke dip! So good! And with pesto, on a pizza, great idea! Pinned!

  3. Oh my word this looks incredible! We don’t usually get fresh artichokes in supermarkets here in the UK but hopefully I’ll be able to find a jar of artichoke hearts, because I must make this!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 15th, 2013 @ 2:45 pm

      We used jarred artichokes! I updated the recipe in case there was confusion!

    I’m a huge pizza lover, but not all pizzas meet my taste, especially when they are loaded with cheese and too many ingredients. This is right up my alley, you get carbs but also all the good things from veggies. Mozzarella is a magic touch!

  5. Erica — May 15, 2013 @ 7:26 am

    Some of my Josh’s favorite ingredients too! Artichoke is just delicious on pizza!

  6. Marie @ Little Kitchie — May 15, 2013 @ 7:26 am

  24. Kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts — May 15, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    You take such wonderful photos–when are you going to do a behind-the-scenes tutorial? I make pizza every Friday night, but never do I get light like you have. Simply gorgeous.

    The pizza ingredients? I bet the combo is just right–it’s always nice when my kids like my veggie pizzas.


    • Two Peas replied: — May 15th, 2013 @ 2:40 pm

      Thanks so much! I will have to work on a behind the scenes post:)

  25. Gaby — May 15, 2013 @ 11:06 am

    I could take down this whole pizza by myself! Yes please 😉

  26. RT @ Recipe Treasure — May 15, 2013 @ 11:15 am

    My FAVORITE pizza!!! YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!!!

  27. Jenny Flake — May 15, 2013 @ 11:31 am

    Now this is my kind of pizza! xoxo

  28. I love this alternative to the usual pizza recipe. Big lover of pesto here!

  29. Kiran @ — May 15, 2013 @ 12:12 pm

    Want. Need. Love!

  30. marla — May 15, 2013 @ 12:23 pm

    Mmmmmm. Now this is a must try pizza!

  31. Becky — May 15, 2013 @ 1:09 pm

    We make tons of pizza at home because we have a wood burning brick oven in our back yard, but I always add my pesto on after the pizza (or pasta-if making a pesto based dish) cooks because they say the basil will burn. Yours turned out ok I guess though because it looks great!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 15th, 2013 @ 2:39 pm

      We didn’t have any trouble with the pesto burning.

  32. Joanne — May 15, 2013 @ 1:13 pm

    I’ve got spinach and artichokes on the brain lately after a grilled cheese I made with the two…this pizza sounds like the perfect continuation of that craving!

  33. Arthur in the Garden! — May 15, 2013 @ 1:20 pm

    Oh, my! You are putting ideas in my head for dinner!

  34. Maple — May 15, 2013 @ 1:58 pm

    I am not very savvy when it comes to fresh artichoke. Do you steam it first and then just use the artichoke heart? Sometimes I will steam it and it’s bitter and/or tough. Sigh

    • Two Peas replied: — May 15th, 2013 @ 2:39 pm

      We use jarred or canned artichoke hearts. I updated the recipe. Sorry for any confusion! Just drain them and chop them up!

  35. How could anyone not like these amazing flavors? Total flavor combo gold medal winner!!

  36. BeBetsy — May 15, 2013 @ 2:03 pm

    Yum, enough said. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Have a great day. ~~ Sharon & Denise

  37. This looks ridiculous! My husband will LOVE it!

  38. This is definitely my kind of pizza! I used to work in a bakery that had an Italian brick pizza oven in it (random addition, I know) and on Fridays we’d make pizzas. And the one I’d always make for myself to take home would be just like this! Pesto, spinach, artichokes, garlic…perfect! Oh that sounds SO good right now!

  39. This is MY kind of pizza! And we must be thinking alike, as I posted a recipe with pesto in it today as well:)

  40. marcie@flavorthemoments — May 15, 2013 @ 3:38 pm

    This is my kind of pizza — lots of pesto, spinach, cheese, and artichoke is probably my favorite part! Looks delicious!
