Spinach and Artichoke Flat Bread Pizza

Sometimes inspiration for my recipes come in the most random of ways.

Take this Flat Bread Pizza for instance; I was eating a Lean Cuisine for lunch one day {don’t judge, they are delicious}, it was a spinach and artichoke dip with a slice of pita bread.  Instead of just dipping the pita bread into the spinach and artichoke dip, I covered the pita bread with the dip, and the spinach and artichoke pizza was born.

Of course I needed to create my own spinach and artichoke dip, because let’s be real, Lean Cuisine doesn’t give you that much to work with.

I started off with a package of frozen spinach that I thawed and squeezed dry. Then I added my favorite Chunky Garlic by Gourmet Gardens.

I added a whole can of quartered artichoke hearts (drained) and a little mayo, gave it a good stir and added some cheese…

Lots of glorious {non – Lean Cuisine} cheese.

Instead of pita bread, I spread the hearty spinach and artichoke dip onto some Naan bread, which is basically just a flat bread that I found in the bakery section of the supermarket.

I baked it at a high temperature since the bread is already cooked, which allows the spinach and artichoke mixture to get bubbly and the bread to crisp up underneath.

This is a superb lunch, filled with healthy spinach and artichokes, then married together with bubbly and creamy cheeses. You will definitely want to make this one.

    I loosely followed this recipe for dinner tonight and it was awesome! I added cubed chicken and sautéed mushrooms to the mixture, as well as some sriracha, and topped with some fresh diced tomatoes. The naan bread got perfectly crispy and the toppings were full of flavor! Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Laura, I would think if you whittled the artichokes down to their hearts and cleaned them up real nice they would work perfectly! 🙂

    This looks delicious! Do you know if it freezes well? I am the only one the likes artichokes in my family, and I cant eat all three at once.

    1. Shawn

      I’m sure you could freeze the artichoke mixture before placing it on top of the bread. Then defrost it in the fridge overnight when you want to make a new pizza! 🙂

    This works! I love foods which require a bread or wrap to transfer to the mouth..pita’s, pizza’s, sliced bread, wraps, tortillas…the list goes on and on. Why do we even bother with knives and forks??

    I totally had those LC dips yesterday for lunch with some bell pepper and thought “wouldn’t this be AWESOME on a pizza?” Probably the last thing you should think about when you’re trying to eat LC meals but whatevz 🙂 this pizza looks awesome, girl! I am obsessed with spinach + artichoke dip and love that you used this on naan since naan is the best!

    Hello!! So making this soon. Using naan as flatbread is one of my favorite tricks too! I can eat my fair share of spinach artichoke dip and this would be no exception!

      Thanks Kelley! I’m always looking for short-cuts when it comes to cooking, so the Naan is always on hand when it comes to personal sized pizzas!

  6. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.

    Yum! I’ve had that snack from Lean Cuisine. I think they also do a pizza that tastes similar to me, but I don’t think it has artichokes. This pizza looks way better!

  7. Kathy Steger @FoodWineThyme

    Flatbreads are easy, simple and filling. I also love the spinach and artichoke dips. What a fantastic idea to combine the two together. Making your recipe this weekend for a cocktail party.

    Ummmm this is the best thing I’ve seen since that time you made reuben dip! Except now I don’t have pregnancy as an excuse to eat it all!!!

    1. Shawn

      OMG!! I forgot about that Reuben Dip!! I never made it for my blog…only that video (lol). I will have to post that soon. Thanks Vanessa! 🙂

      They can be tricky to find, but I usually find mine in the canned vegetable isle. Top shelf, near the other random canned vegetables (palm hearts, asparagus, etc.) Hope you can find some soon, this is such a tasty pizza!

  9. Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

    Spinach and artichoke dip is my guilty pleasure! I think adding it to a kind of healthy flatbread could justify eating the whole thing, right?
