Goat Cheese and Artichoke Pizza

I really enjoy making pizza at home and topping it with different things. Last night was one of these nights. The flavors of the goat cheese and artichokes went together so nicely. Instead of a sauce, I combine garlic and EVOO in a bowl and brushed it onto the crust, drizzling the remainder over the dressed pizza. Adding in the spinach for some color made it even better. I definitely recommend this combination

1 ball of prepared whole wheat dough
1 can artichoke hearts in water, drained and coarsely chopped
4 oz. goat cheese
1 bunch of fresh spinach, chopped
5 oz. shredded low fat mozzarella
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves chopped garlic

Roll out the dough, using whole wheat flour to fit onto your pan. Bake for 5 minutes on 400. Remove the dough from the oven. Combine the olive oil and garlic in a bowl with a small whisk. Brush on the pizza dough and then top with the artichokes, spinach and cheeses. Pour the remaining olive oil mixture over the top of the pizza. Bake for another 10 minutes in the 400 degree oven.

So yeah, be on the lookout because I'm going to give you a shout out on my blog! I plan on making a few different kinds of pizzas and this is definitely a topping I'll be using! Thanks for sharing this!
