Four Cheese Spinach Artichoke Pizza


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Pizza dough (you can use my recipe here)
  • 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 45 slices of Provolone cheese (the ones I used were about 5″ wide)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 6 tbsp herb and garlic flavored cream cheese (I used Philadelphia brand) – room temperature
  • 1/2 small red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 12 tbsp cornmeal

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Spray a 12″ or 15″ pizza pan with cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle the pan evenly with cornmeal.
  4. Roll out your pizza dough and place into the pizza pan.Using a fork, dock or poke the pizza dough all over the surface to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Spread 1 tbsp of the olive oil over the surface of the dough.
  6. Place the dough in a warm place to rise while you prepare the other ingredients.
  7. In a frying pan heat the remaining olive oil on medium heat.
  8. Add the garlic to the pan and stir. Cook for about 1 minute then add the spinach to the pan. Add a pinch of salt.
  9. Using heat proof tongs, move the spinach around the pan to cook. Once the spinach has wilted and is softened (and coated in oil/garlic) remove from the pan and set aside.
  10. Using the back of a spoon or a spatula, spread 5 tbsps of the herb and garlic cream cheese on the surface of the pizza dough. To make the cream cheese more spreadable you may want to heat it up in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  11. On top of the cream cheese, sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  12. On top of this, arrange 3/4 of the spinach on the pizza.
  13. Next, arrange 3/4 of the artichoke hearts on the pizza.
  14. Now, take your slices of Provolone cheese and spread the remaining cheese on one side of each.
  15. Place the Provolone slices, cream cheese side down on top of the pizza.
  16. On top of this, arrange the remaining artichokes and spinach.
  17. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese.
  18. Arrange the red pepper slices on top of the cheese around the pizza.
  19. Sprinkle the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
  20. Place the pizza in the oven to bake for 20 – 25 minutes. The top should bubble a little and get a little bit of a golden color when ready.
  21. Cut into slices and serve!
