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. I use thin store-bought pizza crust—it’s convenient and provides a crisp-crunchy base. (You could also try English muffins for a personalized pizza, or for a lower-carb spin, you can choose to build your mini pizza on a roasted portobello mushroom cap.) You’ll have plenty of leftover Spinach Artichoke Dip left for crudité or you can try using it in my Spinach Artichoke Dip Stuffed Spaghetti Squash. It’s a mouthwatering mashup of a beloved dip and everyone’s favorite dial-up dinner.

This recipe makes 1 pizza

For the Spinach Artichoke Dip (makes ~3½ cups)

  • • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen, chopped spinach
  • ¾ cup low-fat mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt
  • • ¾ cup grated Parmesan
  • • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained, finely chopped
  • • 2 scallions (green onions), finely chopped
  • • ½ teaspoon garlic powder  
  • • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional for mild heat

For the Pizza

  • • 1 thin store-bought pizza crust, like Boboli
  • 1 to 1½ cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

To make the dip: Microwave frozen spinach according to package directions in a medium mixing bowl. Squeeze out the majority of water by pressing down with paper towels, a kitchen towel clean or cheesecloth. Once spinach is drained, toss in the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Add a large dollop of spinach artichoke dip on top of pizza crust and spread out evenly. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top. Bake in oven 5 to 10 minutes until cheese is melted and the dip is warmed through. Pizza crust brands will vary, so be sure to follow the crust package directions for the exact temperature and bake time.
