Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com 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.

  1. 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!

  2. Maria,
    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.

    Thanks!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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!
