Imagine combining creamy spinach artichoke dip with a slice of cheesy pizza for the ultimate eating experience. The dip is rich and indulgent, yet it’s a surprisingly lightened-up version. Plus, it’s a cinch to make. Note that you can choose to build your mini pizzas on roasted portobello mushroom caps for a lower-carb spin, or on a toasted English muffin for a crunchier pizza-like crust.

This recipe makes 12 pizzas
Ingredients:

For the Spinach Artichoke Dip (makes ~2½ cups)

  • • 1 box (10 ounces) frozen, chopped spinach
  • ¾ cup light mayonnaise
  • • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained, and finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt or coarse sea salt
  • • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional (omit if you’re heat sensitive)

For the Pizzas

  • ½ to 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • • 6 whole-grain English Muffins (optional, use only if you’re making English Muffin pizzas)
Preparation:

To make the spinach artichoke dip: Microwave the frozen spinach according to package directions. Squeeze out as much water as possible using paper towels or cheesecloth. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Set aside until ready to assemble pizzas.

To make the English Muffin Pizzas

Layer a dollop of dip and a sprinkling of shredded mozzarella on top of each English muffin. Bake in oven at 400°F for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dip is warmed through, then finish under the broiler to create a golden-brown top.
