If you like spinach and artichoke dip....this pizza is for you.
Chicken Spinach & Artichoke Pizza
1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for dough
2 1/2 cups baby spinach
Salt & Pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
Pinch red pepper flakes, optional
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
7.5 oz marinated artichoke hearts, drained and patted dry, chopped
4 oz mushrooms, drained and patted dry
1 cup cooked chicken, shredded
2 oz crumbled feta
1/2 cup shredded pizza cheese or mozzarella
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Heat oven to 500* My oven runs a little hot so I bake on 475*. Place pizza stone in oven to heat up.
Press 1/2 the dough from recipe above out on parchment paper until desired thickness (I like mine on the thin side). Drizzle with olive oil and pinch of salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a medium skillet. Add spinach, pinch of salt and pepper; saute until it starts to soften. Add garlic and pepper flakes if using; cook 1-2 minutes more. Place in a bowl and set aside.
To the same skillet melt butter; whisk in flour and cook 1-2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mixture will be thick. Stir in spinach.
Spread mixture out across dough. Add artichoke, mushrooms, chicken, feta and pizza cheese. Grate parmesan cheese over the top. Slide pizza onto a cutting board and transfer to pizza stone along with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
