Meatless Monday Recipe: Spinach and Artichoke Pizza

Diane Hoffmaster 

            

Pizza is practically a staple in the American diet. It is a favorite meal for both adults and kids and easy to turn into a meatless Monday dinner by choosing vegetarian ingredients instead of sausage and pepperoni. Making your own pizza at home is also a great way to save quite a bit of money! If you find yourself too busy to make homemade dough, there are many other options out there. Using French bread from the bakery is an easy way to make pizza without a lot of work. For an even fancier pizza, ditch the traditional red sauce and use olive oil or your favorite herbed cream cheese spread. Topped with plenty of fresh vegetables, you now have a quick and easy meatless meal that the whole family will enjoy!
