Scale

Ingredients

For the White Bean Cream Sauce

  • 1, 15 ounce can white beans (cannellini or navy beans)
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder 
  • ¼ sea salt & ground black pepper, to taste

For the Pizza:

  • 1 frozen pizza crust (see notes)
  • 8 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of water
  • ½ cup quartered artichokes 
  • 1 cup Violife Just Like Mozzarella
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons grated Violife Just Like Parmesan
  • Red pepper flakes or black pepper, for serving

Instructions

Preheat the oven: Preheat the oven to the temperature according to the instructions for the frozen pizza crust you’re using. 

Make the white bean sauce: in an upright blender combine the white beans, water, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Blend the mixture on high until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper if necessary. The consistency should be similar to that of a creamy salad dressing: thick, but drips off of a spoon.

Place the white bean sauce in a bowl. Before adding the spinach, make sure it’s squeezed of excess water. Place in a clean paper towel or dish towel and squeeze out the water over the sink. Break apart the artichoke quarters, separating the leaves. Add the spinach, artichoke pieces and ¼ cup of Violife Just Like Parmesan to the white bean sauce; mix to combine. 

Assemble the pizza: Spread the mixture onto the frozen pizza top with any extra artichoke pieces, if desired. Sprinkle on the Violife Just Like Mozzarella and the remaining 2 tablespoons of  Violife Just Like Parmesan. 

Bake the Pizza: Follow the instructions on the frozen pizza crust for baking directions. I placed mine on the bottom rack of the oven and baked for 11 minutes. Once baked, turn the oven to broil and place the pizza on the top rack. Leaving the oven cracked, watch closely for 1-2 minutes. The cheese will start to soften and melt.

Remove the pizza from the oven. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and black pepper, if desired. Slice and serve!
