Artichoke, Tomato and Spinach Pizza | www.tasteandtellblog.com
 
I’m starting to wonder who loves the spinach/artichoke combination better – me or Rachael Ray? I guess it’s her, since she is the one actually coming up with the recipe, but I just keep getting drawn to these ingredients!! And I’m glad I was drawn to this one, because it is a real winner.

I always struggle with using all the produce from our garden, because it produces a lot for just 2 1/2 people. But so far, I’ve picked every cherry tomato that has been ripe and I’ve used it or eaten it, thanks to recipes like this one! And home grown tomatoes are SO much better than store bought ones. This is my favorite time of year for food! And I was so excited to discover that a new grocery store in my neighborhood sells refrigerated pizza dough – the good stuff. I used it for this, and it was actually pretty fantastic. Especially since I don’t have time to make it from scratch for a weekday now since I’m working. The only problem I had with this recipe is that the original recipe said to bake it for 20 minutes. I checked on mine at just after 12 minutes, and if it would have gone any longer, it would have been burnt. So, I’ve adapted the instructions below – just make sure you keep an eye on it!

But really, if you are a fan of the spinach/artichoke combo, you will LOVE this recipe. I practically ate the whole thing myself. And it reheats fairly decently – which I always love!
