1 pkg (10 oz/300 g) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
8 oz (250 g) ricotta cheese
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp (2 mL) oregano, crumbled
1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) red pepper flakes
1 store-bought pizza crust (12 inch/30 cm)
1 can (14 oz/398 mL) artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese

Squeeze moisture from spinach until dry. Combine spinach with next 7 ingredients (ricotta through pepper flakes). Place bread shell on a cookie sheet. Spread spinach mixture over shell, leaving a 1 inch (2.5 cm) border. Top with artichokes and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450ºF (230ºC) for 12 - 15 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and pizza is heated through. Serves 4.

Cook's Note: For additional colour, add sliced ripe olives, slivered oil-packed dried tomatoes or canned roasted red peppers along with artichokes.
