My favourite dip hands down has to be the hot spinach and artichoke dip and for this years Big Game for the football playoffs I thought that I would bring it in pizza form! The basic idea was to make a pizza with all of the flavours of the spinach and artichoke dip and as it turns out it is freaking amazing! This pizza is also super easy to make, you start by brushing the pizza sauce, in this case a garlic olive oil, onto the pizza crust, drop on some dollops of cream cheese followed by mozzarella and parmesan along with the stars of the show the spinach and artichokes before baking it until golden brown and bubbly; it’s all done in less than 20 minutes! Both fresh and frozen spinach work well in this pizza and if you want to kick things up a bit you can try adding things like bacon, sun dried tomatoes or even shredded chicken. I will definitely be making this pizza very often and especially for the Big Game this weekend!
