Joy Bauer Just Turned Spinach-Artichoke Dip Into Pizza—Here's How to Make It


Using your favorite dip as a pizza topping is pure genius. My immediate thought was how brilliant it is when I came across Joy Bauer's Instagram post where she shared her recipe for Spinach-Artichoke Dip Pizza. A creamy and nourishing dip makes for the perfect pizza topping, and it's something you probably didn't even realize you needed.

According to Bauer, her inspiration for creating this dish came from her love for both pizza and spinach artichoke dip. Combining her two favorite foods allowed her to create something fun, flavorful, and also nourishing. Bauer has used this dip before in her Spinach-Artichoke Spaghetti Squash recipe, and it worked so well that she decided to give it a try on pizza as well.


The results were fantastic, and she loved them.

If you follow Bauer on social media, you know she's all about delicious food. She often shares amazing recipes like her anti-inflammatory sippable soup and her 3-ingredient plant-based tacos. What makes her recipes so special is that they are not only delicious but also packed with nutrients. The Spinach-Artichoke Dip Pizza, for example, is high in fiber, vitamin C, and potassium thanks to the spinach and artichoke hearts. The cheese and Greek yogurt provide calcium and protein as well.

This pizza is also perfect for a quick weeknight meal, especially if you use a store-bought whole-grain pizza crust.


If you can't find one, Bauer suggests using whole grain English muffins or even a portabella mushroom as the "crust."

To make this delicious Spinach-Artichoke Dip Pizza, start by combining thawed and drained frozen, chopped spinach with roughly chopped artichoke hearts in a bowl. Add grated Parmesan cheese, scallions, garlic powder, and plain strained Greek-style yogurt. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Spread the mixture evenly over a prepared pizza crust and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake at 400℉ for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the top turns golden-brown (be sure to follow the instructions for your specific pizza crust brand). Allow the pizza to cool slightly before serving.

If you're a fan of delicious veggie-packed pizzas, give this Spinach-Artichoke Dip Pizza a try. It only requires a few ingredients and comes together quickly, making it the perfect option for a quick and tasty dinner. And if you have any leftover dip, Bauer suggests using it as a snack with crudité.
