Spinach Artichoke Wonder Dome: Why Let Dip Have All The Fun?
We all love pizza, but sometimes it can get a bit predictable. Most of the time, you know exactly what you're getting — it's there laid out on the plate in front of you. That's not the case with our latest creation, where the delicious dough is hiding something inside, and you won't find out what until you dig in. So let's get started!
For the spinach artichoke filling:
- 1¼ cups cream cheese
- 3 oz leaf spinach
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper
- 3 oz artichoke hearts, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1½ cups shredded mozzarella
- 1 cup grated parmesan
- lemon zest
- salt & pepper to taste
For the dough ball:
- pizza dough
- ¼ stick butter, melted
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
Combine the ingredients for the spinach artichoke filling and form the mixture into a ball.
Flour your work surface and roll the pizza dough out into a circle. If you don't have a rolling pin on hand, just use an empty wine bottle.
Place the spinach artichoke ball in the middle of the pizza dough and wrap 2 opposite ends of the dough over it. Don't worry if they overlap slightly.
Fold the 2 remaining sides of dough over the top of the dough ball.
Shape the dough around the spinach artichoke ball and place it on a baking tray. Combine the melted butter and chopped parsley and brush it over the dough ball.
Transfer the baking tray to a preheated oven and cook at 350°F for 20 minutes.
