Spinach, artichoke and ricotta cheese pizza

Before we get to the good stuff, let’s talk about the fact that tonight while getting Peanut undressed for her bath, I dropped my iPhone in the tub.

That’s full of water.

The end.

Just kidding – I think it’s going to be ok.  So far it seems to function the same way, except the speaker on it sounds very fuzzy.  I fished it out immediately, removed the cover, shook it dry, and put it in rice.  Per your feedback online, I’m leaving it there for a while.  :::Sigh:::

Moving on.  To pizza.

I actually made this a couple of weekends ago but haven’t gotten around to posting it yet.  Making pizza is one of my favorite things, especially now that I’ve figured out the trick to the crust – buy the whole wheat kind at Stop n Shop, roll it out with your hands with the help of some flour, and then put it on a cookie sheet that has a light base of olive oil.

The best thing about pizza is that you can be as creative as you want and it still comes out delicious (like the time I made pizza with broccoli and hot dogs).  I usually just buy the crust at the local grocery store and then use whatever is in the fridge and/or pantry.

What do you like on your pizza?

Spinach, artichoke and ricotta cheese whole wheat pizza - healthy and delicious.
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4
  • 1 whole wheat pizza crust
  • 1-2 cups of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts
  • 1 package of spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese (about 8 oz)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Brush on a light coat of olive oil on a large pan (I try to avoid corners and edges). Spread out the whole wheat pizza dough using your hands and a bit of flour and set it on the pn, then coat with tomato sauce.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of ricotta cheese and spread the mozzarella cheese on top.
  4. Drain and rinse the artichoke hearts and spread them on the pizza.
  5. On the stove top, heat up a little bit of oil and cook the spinach and garlic for a couple of minutes until the spinach is wilted. Spread the spinach on the pizza. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the crust looks cooked and the cheese is slightly browned.



  1. I dropped my iPhone in the toilet and after a few days in a bag of rice, it was just fine :) Fingers crossed yours will be okay too! PS this pizza looks amazing–I just pinned it so I remember to make it!

  2. MMMMM! My honey is from Jersey where they have real italians who make ALL types of pizzas. I have never had this one that you made, but I LOVE spinach & Artichoke dip, so I think this is on my list of “need to make”.

  3. I like whatever’s in my fridge or freezer on my pizza! Another good crust trick is putting cornmeal on the bottom of the baking sheet. Completely keeps it from sticking.

    • I am totally trying that next time I make pizza! I used to do flour, but if the sauce was soggy enough, it would still stick!

  4. How do you roll out your pizza dough by hand? I’ve tried and I am horrible at it, although I have heard you need to let the dough rest on the counter for awhile first. I’ve started using the Pilsbury out of a can :-) and yes, using corn meal does help it not to stick. My favorite homemade pizza is mozzarella, prosciutto & caramelized red onions.

  5. Thanks!

  6. Fingers crossed that your phone is ok!!!
    That pizza looks so good, i’ve never attempted to make my own pizza, I’m too scared I will screw it up.

  7. Oh, that pizza looks super tasty! And I hope your iPhone lives.

    (I think I would have to draw the line at hotdogs on pizza though… ;))
