What You Need To Make This Spinach Artichoke Pizza Recipe

  • Pizza Crust: You can make your pizza crust from scratch or use premade pizza crust! I use Banza Gluten-Free Chickpea Pizza Crust —it’s gluten-free, grain-free, and vegan!. (If you want to try making pizza crust from scratch, try my pizza dough recipes where I share how to make Cauliflower Crust 2 Ways Recipe!)
  • Alfredo Sauce: The alfredo provides a saucy, creamy base. You can also use pesto alfredo even more added flavor!
  • Cheese: You’ll need freshly shredded parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
  • Frozen Spinach, thawed: You can use thawed frozen spinach or you can use fresh spinach and sauté it for about 2-3 minutes before adding it to the pizza. If using thawed frozen spinach, use a paper towel or clean towel to squeeze out any excess liquid.
  • Marinated Artichokes: One can of marinated artichokes works perfectly for this recipe. Make sure to drain the artichokes before adding them to the pizza. (No one likes soggy pizza!)
  • Seasonings: Italian Seasoning, Red Pepper Flakes, Minced Garlic, Black Pepper, and Sea Salt.

This artichoke spinach pizza is vegetarian and gluten-free. You can easily customize the recipe by adding your favorite protein like grilled chicken, bacon, shrimp, or alternative meat like plant-based sausage!

Want To Make This Spinach Artichoke Pizza Vegan? Try This:

Instead of using alfredo sauce, use vegan cashew cream sauce or vegan ricotta, and swap the mozzarella cheese for vegan cheese (Violife has excellent options). With those easy swaps, you’ll have a delicious vegan, dairy-free pizza!

What Kind Of Gluten-Free Pizza Dough To Use

Banza’s Gluten-Free Chickpea crust is a great premade pizza crust option. Instead of being made with regular flour, it is made with chickpea flour. It is gluten-free, grain-free, and vegan. The crust is hearty and can hold up to mounds of toppings and it also bakes perfectly. Whether you are gluten-free or not, it is a delicious pizza crust option that is super easy to use!

How To Make Spinach Artichoke Pizza 

Making this spinach artichoke pizza is quick and easy! You can have this pizza assembled, baked in the oven, and ready to eat in less than 15 minutes! 

  1. Start by adding the alfredo sauce to your Pizza Crust and season with red pepper flakes, minced garlic, and black pepper. Then, sprinkle on half of the parmesan cheese to the base.
  2. Layer on the marinated artichokes and spinach. If the spinach is raw, saute it in a pan with olive oil for 2-3 minutes, or until it wilts. If the spinach is frozen, make sure it is thawed first and use a clean towel to squeeze out any excess moisture.
  3. Sprinkle on layers of parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle on the Italian Seasoning.
  4. Bake it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese has fully melted.
  5. Slice and top with fresh basil. Enjoy!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE PIZZA:

  • Use a pizza stone or pizza pan to get the perfect pizza crust! If you are using a baking sheet, line it with parchment paper for the best results.
  • If using premade pizza crust, prepare the pizza crust as instructed on the package before assembling the pizza
  • Feel free to swap out fresh garlic for garlic powder.
  • Want to add more cheese to the mix, try adding shredded Fontina or Gruyere cheese.
  • Make sure to drain the artichoke hearts before adding it to the pizza. If you do not have marinated artichoke hearts, you can use frozen artichoke hearts. If using frozen artichoke hearts, make sure to saute them for about 5 minutes first before adding to the pizza.
