Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Pizza with Artichoke Hearts

On Saturday I had a hankering for pizza, but not just any ordinary pizza... something a little more gourmet. I found this homemade alfredo sauce recipe and went from there. The results were deeeeeeelicious!

Sauce Ingredients:
(note: this recipe makes a decent amount of sauce... I had a lot leftover so I made pasta with it the next day)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 package cream cheese, softened and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 oz. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • a pinch of salt
Melt the butter over medium heat and add the garlic. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Add the cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Add the milk, a little at a time, and whisk until smooth. Stir in the parmesan, pepper, and salt. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired thickness. 

  • small jar of sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
  • fresh spinach
  • small jar of artichoke hearts
  • mozzarella cheese
Roll out your dough (yes, I used store bought... I'm lazy) and add a little bit of the sauce. Add your toppings and and drizzle a little more sauce on top.

Bake until the crust starts to brown (about 15 minutes).

Enjoy! We sure did...
