Tomato, Spinach and Artichoke Pizza
What’s better than pizza? This Tomato, Spinach and Artichoke Pizza is both healthy, tasty and easy to make!
Ken loves pizza. Seriously, he could probably eat pizza most days out of the week. When I asked him what he wanted for dinner the other night, naturally, his response was “pizza.” Pizza. Yikes! I say “yikes” because I am trying to stay away from dairy. Pizza and cheese pretty much go together. And of course, cheese is dairy. I thought I would make this pizza without cheese but in the end, I decided to use a small amount of cheese on it.
Ultimately, including cheese on the pizza resulted in me taking a lactaid pill. But it was oh so worth it. The feta cheese paired so well with the veggies on this pizza. Tomato, spinach, onions, basil, artichokes. That’s a palate pleasing combination right there.
What are your favorite toppings for a pizza?
We have a little independent Italian restaurant by our house called Giuseppe’s. Their pizza is absolutely wonderful. I’d have to say that it’s in my top 10 list of favorite pizzas. Another pizza joint on my top 10 list is Pusateri’s Chicago Pizza. Want to talk about awesome pizza? Let’s talk about that place. If you are ever in Stuart, FL, you MUST go there!
Anyways, let’s get on to that recipe. I know you’re starving for it.
