Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I could probably eat an entire bowl of spinach artichoke dip by myself.  The problem is, I can't justify doing that as "dinner".  But slap it on a pizza crust and my problem is solved! 

Yea!
  
It's the little things.

Spinach Artichoke Pizza


Ingredients:

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp cream cheese
 3/4 Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
6 oz fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 can artichoke hearts, rinsed and squeezed dry, roughly chopped
2 pizza crusts (unless you want the topping to extra heavy)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425º (or follow the directions on container)

In a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together the cream, butter and cream cheese until melted.  Combine well. 

Stir in the Parmesan cheese and garlic powder.  Continue to cook, stirring frequently, for about 15 minutes. 

Place the spinach in a frying pan with a tablespoon of water and cook over medium high heat until wilted. Then place on a clean towel and wring out all the liquid.  Then add the spinach to the sauce and stir to combine. 

Spread the sauce over the crust. 

Spread the artichoke pieces over the sauce and top with mozzarella cheese. 

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
