I found this one in a Cooking Light article and I just finished eating seconds. Which is something I usually can refrain from doing. But this was so yummy.

My family loved this! I didnt understand the recipe's instruction for what to do with the artichoke hearts and how to cook the chicken. So I diced up the chicken and cooked it in a pan with a liitle olive oil, a clove of freshly crushed garlic and salt and pepper. I then added that to the bowl of spinach and I chopped the artichokes into smaller pieces so that they would all blend together. Instead of Provolone I used mozzarella and Feta. And for my dairy allergic son I threw in a dollop of Tofutti's dairy free cream cheese. The pizza crust I use came from my Grocery store's bakery (Publix). They cooked up fast and perfect!
