Ham Spinach and Artichoke Pizza

IMG_2639 This Spinach Artichoke and Ham Pizza was inspired by Artichoke Pizza in New York. The pizza was topped with a cheesy spinach artichoke dip, ham and mozzarella. It was one of the best pizzas that I have made, and I will definitely be making it again. If you do not have ham you could make a vegetarian version of this pizza, or your could add prosciutto or cooked bacon.

Charles and I made a pizza with two different toppings, the other half was Hawaiian. I used a pound of pizza dough from Whole Foods, and it made a 10 x 15 inch pizza. I have adjusted the recipe to make a whole 10 x 15 inch pizza.


You will need:

Butter, for greasing the pan
1 pound Pizza dough
1/2 cup Mascarpone
2 pounds Spinach
3/4 cup shredded Pecorino (or similar hard salty Italian cheese)
Salt and Pepper
1 10 ounce can of Artichokes, chopped
3/4 cup thinly sliced Ham
3/4 cup chopped fresh Mozzarella

Step 1:

Butter a 10 x 15 inch pan (or a pan of a similar size), and stretch out the dough on the pan. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. I like to use butter to grease the pan because I think it makes the crust a bit crisper.

Step 2:

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the mascarpone over medium low heat. Then add the spinach. Place a lid over the skillet, this will help cook the spinach more quickly. Stir after a minute. Once the spinach has all wilted and cooked, add the pecorino, and salt and pepper to taste. Then stir in the artichokes.

Step 3:

Spread the spinach and artichoke mixture over the dough. Then top with the ham and the mozzarella. Add a little more pecorino if you want.

Step 4:

Bake for about 25 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and the dough has browned.
