Spinach Artichoke Pesto 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!
