Hello there! This Spinach and Artichoke Dip Pizza is for you!

Wanna know why?

Because chances are that you ate a few slices of the Cookies and Cream Flourless Chocolate Cake and now you need something to wash it down with. Right?

You’re welcome.

Want to know what else I’m thinking about today? I’ll tell you anyways! 😛

I need that house we’re putting together to be done. Like, yesterday. I am SO over it! Initially, we were just going to flip it and sell it, but now we decided to keep it and it’s taking so darn long to finish!

I need to share this one photo with you… it’s just a little corner in the kitchen. The people that used to live in this house really, really liked flowers and butterflies, thus they brought them inside. And they left one cabinet to go with all that jazz.

And… so, we were talking about pizza. :-)

This pizza topping is by far my favorite. Wait. Second favorite. My first favorite is Pizza Nutella. LOOOOOVE that!

Seriously, though, how can you go wrong with spreading your favorite restaurant-type dip on top of some really awesome, homemade pizza crust. OH, and the crust!! It takes about 5 minutes to put it together, and it’s crunchy, but soft, and incredibly flavorful. You might wanna make two crusts just in case you wanna load up on some really good bread.

    Can I just say I love this pizza? It’s so easy, and everyone loves it. I doubled the recipe for a gathering of about 15 people, cut into smaller pieces, and they devoured it. Made it again for dinner tonight and added olives and feta. It is a breeze to make and tastes delicious. I’ve made it round and rectangular — the dough is very easy to work with. Thanks for sharing!

    How is the house project coming along? It’s fun, but I know it’s a lot to do! I kind of want to update our house here and there (30 year old house) but no time…or no energy… I hope you will share before & after pictures. :) I’ve seen this pizza everywhere on Pinterest today. Such an awesome shot! I need the recipe now… hopping over.

    There is no way I could stop myself from eating this whole thing. It is too delicious for words. And good luck with the house…those projects always take longer than you want them to, but the result is usually worth it! :)

  1. […] You also won’t regret packin’ a few extra creamy calories with this refreshing coffee drink. It’s so simple that if you’ve never had it, you’ll probably say, why didn’t I think of that?!  You can also make it with fat-free, or low-cal ice cream, if you wish, and save some room for a slice of pizza.
