Yield: 2 servings (see notes)

Ingredients

  • ¾ pound (350 g) pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • ¼ cup (60 g) crème fraiche (substitute ricotta)
  • 1 ⅓ cups (150 g) shredded low moisture mozzarella (substitute young gouda or fontina)
  • 1 cup fresh (baby) spinach
  • 1 cup marinated artichokes from a jar/can, drained and roughly chopped

Optional:

  • 1 ball burrata cheese
  • Fresh basil and thyme leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C), or to 400 °F (200 °C) if using a fan-oven.
  • On a lightly floured surface, push or roll the pizza dough out until it fits the baking sheet, about 10x14 inch (26x36 cm). If you stretch the dough by hand, working from the center out, you can leave a thicker rim (yum!). Use as much flour as necessary to keep it from sticking to the counter and your hands. If the dough is hard to work with, let it rest for 5 minutes to relax, then continue stretching.
  • Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Stir crème fraiche to lighten it and give it a softer texture. If it’s cold, it can be hard to spread – thin with a teaspoon of water at a time until spreadable consistency is reached.
  • Spoon crème fraiche over the dough leaving a ½-inch border. Top with fresh spinach, then shredded cheese. Arrange roughly chopped artichokes over the pizza.
  • Slide the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden, about 15 minutes. Rotate the sheet halfway through for even browning.
  • Remove pizza from the oven. Optional: Top with torn burrata, fresh basil and thyme, and some parmesan cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

How many servings?
This pizza will yield 1 baking sheet. I usually stretch the pizza to 10x14-inch or 26x36 cm. It’s enough for two hungry people or four people if you are only snacking or enjoy it with a big side salad.
