I am always looking for fun ways to top pizza, because let’s face it, you could put anything on pizza dough and it works. I love Spinach Artichoke Dip (for my recipe click here), so I decided to change up the recipe a little and make it as a pizza.

 

HELLO Delicious!

 

This is so incredibly easy to make – I get store bought dough because the one thing I detest making as a chef, is dough. I am too impatient to wait for yeast to rise, I hate dealing with the huge stand mixer to make the dough, I hate cleaning up the inevitable flour that gets everywhere, etc etc. If you have a Wegman’s by you, their premade dough is AWESOME. You can also go to your local pizzeria and ask to buy dough there as well (a great trick I learned years ago). Last night I topped the pizza with fresh basil which I highly suggest doing, the fresh basil flavor really lends itself to the ingredients on the pizza. My hubby also chose to add a little Cholula hot sauce to the top, which with the basil was a winning combo.
