20 Minute Red Curry Noodles with Fried Coconut Garlic.
This Spinach and Artichoke Pizza with Cheesy Bread Crust is the perfect pizza to make at home! Homemade pizza dough baked up with an extra cheesy mozzarella stuffed crust, topped with garlic herb butter, sautéed spinach, three kinds of cheese, and spicy artichokes. As soon as the pizza comes out of the oven, top with basil, slice, eat, and ENJOY. Every last bite of this pizza is delicious and will leave you wanting more. The cheese-filled crust and garlic herb butter really seal the deal.
You know, it’s funny, I’ve used our pizza oven more the last four months than I ever have before. When we built the oven in our studio space, I was SO excited to start using it. But after a few too many burnt pizzas, and then way too many pizzas stuck to the pizza peel, I gave up trying for a solid whole year…which I greatly regret.
Around Christmas, something gave me the courage to try again, and ever since I’ve been using the pizza oven non-stop. I LOVE it so much. And today, I am happy to say that I have the system down. I’ve confidently been making all of our pizzas in the pizza oven.
And you guys, let me tell you, they are GOOD. I realize that most of you don’t have your own pizza oven. So I’m sorry for going on and on, but the story leads me into today’s pizza recipe!
And no, you don’t have to have a pizza oven to make this. Just a regular ole’ oven will do the trick!
I’ve had this pizza in mind for far too long. So when I had the oven going for another recipe I’m in the middle of working on, I decided to finally test out my idea for an updated spinach and artichoke pizza.
I wanted the crust to be stuffed with cheese. Just like they used to do at places like Pizza Hut and Domino’s. Do you remember the cheese-stuffed crust? It was always a splurge for us to get, but one we loved!
And then, for the base? Garlic herb butter, but all done up and topped with spinach, cheese, and artichokes!
I always start with the garlic. Melt it down with herbs and spices and the tiniest hit of butter. It’s a simple mix but it’s one of the keys to this pizza.
Then, in that same skillet, cook up the spinach.
First up stuff that crust with cheese. Take some pizza dough…I always make mine at home but store-bought is great too…use what’s easiest for you! Roll the dough out, then stuff it with cubes of mozzarella.
As it bakes inside the crust, it turns melty and creates the perfect cheesy crust situation. One that people don’t expect…but of course…love.
Now layer on that garlic butter, lots of spinach, then cheese, and all the artichokes.
I like to bake the pizza on a sheet pan, or in a pizza oven, or in the upper position of the oven at a super high temp. Ideally, at the highest temp your oven will go! It’s key to a really beautiful crust.
The pizza cooks pretty fast, so in less than fifteen minutes you’ll have amazing pizza. AND…your kitchen will smell incredible. Like cheesy garlic bread baking away, but it’s a whole pizza instead! As soon as the pizza comes out of the oven, slice it, top it with basil, and eat. This is meant to be eaten hot, so enjoy it fresh out of the oven!

Outstanding recipe! I made this at a pizza party and everyone agreed it was the best, and definitely a keeper. The stuffed crust and the garlic butter really take it over the top.

I made this for dinner last night using out local Portland Pie( Maine❤️) beer dough. My husband turned his nose up when I told him no meat but he loved it! Four slices later he said he didn’t miss the meat the flavor was so good.
Thanks for the amazing recipes!
We will definitely be making again and again and again ?❤️

My first time making pizza and it definitely was a struggle to get the dough in a flat circle but it came out sooo delicious. I think maybe next time will use a little bit more dough because with this amount it was too thin for my liking. Definitely making this one again, thanks ?
Thanks so much for trying this recipe, I am so glad it was a hit! Thanks for sharing your review!? xT
