Reviews for Spinach & Artichoke Pizza
"My husband and I LOVED this pizza!!! I added two pieces of crumbled bacon to the pizza and a sprinkling of feta cheese - amazing!!!! I actually used a pre-bought pizza crust to save on time. I've already shared this recipe with several friends - it was just that good!"
"My husband and I both loved this recipe. I should clarify that I used a different homemade pizza dough recipe. The only thing this pizza needed was a little salt and pepper, so the second time I made it, I added it after brushing the crust with olive oil."
"This was pretty good--added diced chicken and olives. Seemed a little "Blah" to some family members when compared to pizza from a pizza joint."
