Pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
1 bag fresh spinach leaves
2-15oz cans artichoke hearts
6oz feta cheese
15oz bag mozzarella cheese
1 block Parmesan cheese
1 jar basil pesto sauce or 1 batch homemade basil pesto
Roll out your dough to size on a freshly floured surface. Spread a layer of pesto across the pizza, then top with a layer of fresh spinach followed by a layer of mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle on your artichoke hearts and feta cheese. Finally, garnish with some freshly grated Parmesan and dry Italian seasoning to taste. Bake a 375 F for 15-20 minutes until golden and bubbly. Let cool before eating, unless you want to burn the roof of your mouth!
Spinach Basil Pesto Sauce
4 cups fresh spinach leaves
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Salt, Pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Leftover pesto can be placed in ice cube trays and frozen for later!
Though I'm not a big pizza eater, when I do have some I prefer to make it from scratch with quality ingredients. Homemade pesto sauce is especially easy to create and store for later!
