Ingredients

Creamy Artichoke Spread
  • 1 cup cooked white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 canned artichokes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Spinach Pesto
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • ½ garlic clove
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups loose-packed spinach
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
For the pizza
  • 1 Angelic Bakehouse Flatzza™ Crust
  • Several handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup white cheddar cheese
  • 4 canned artichokes, quartered
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • Handful of microgreens
  • Red pepper flakes, optional

Instructions

  • Make the Creamy Artichoke Spread: In a food processor, combine the beans, artichokes, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and olive oil and puree until creamy. Scoop the mixture out of the food processor and set aside.
  • Make the Spinach Pesto: In the food processor, combine the pepitas, garlic, salt, lemon juice, and spinach. Pulse until the pepitas are well chopped. Drizzle in the olive oil and pulse until combined.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Place the Flatzza™ crust on a baking sheet. Spread a layer of the artichoke spread over the crust (you likely won’t use it all). Lay the spinach leaves on top (see video), then top with ¾ cup of the cheese, the artichokes, and the remaining ¼ cup cheese. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.
  • Remove from the oven and top with dollops of pesto and sprinkle with the parsley, mint leaves, microgreens, and red pepper flakes, if desired. Slice and serve.
