Spinach & Artichoke Twists

  • 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 c. finely chopped spinach
  • 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus 2 tsp.
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt
  • freshly grated pepper
  • 1 tube refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, artichoke hearts, spinach, mozzarella, 1/2 c Parmesan, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  2. On prepared baking sheet, press the pizza crust into a rectangle about 15-x-10", then spread cheese mixture onto dough, leaving a 1/4" border around the edges. Fold the dough in half to get at 10-x-8" rectangle. Press down to seal, then pinch the edges.
  3. Cut the dough into 6 equal strips, then twist each one. Adjust twists so there is at least 1" between each on the baking sheet.
  4. In a small heatproof bowl, melt butter in the microwave, then stir in the garlic powder and remaining 2 teaspoons Parmesan. Brush the twists with butter mixture.
  5. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
