  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups baby spinach chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated will work best

  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts go through and discard and tough layer

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

To Make the White Pizza Sauce

  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a medium sized skillet.
  • Add in the garlic and sauté until just soft. Then whisk in the flour.
  • Turn the heat to low and very slowly (starting with just a tablespoon or two at a time), whisk in the whole milk and then the heavy cream.
  • Bring to a simmer and add the chopped spinach a little at a time, stirring, until all of it is wilted.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese. Continue stirring until it melts. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Constructing the Spinach Artichoke Pizza

  • Roll out your pizza dough and put it on a prebaked pizza stone or a 12 inch pizza tray. Spread the sauce over the dough.
  • Top with the mozzarella cheese. Then add the artichokes and finally top with the Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the edges of your pizza are golden and the cheese is well melted.
