il diavOlO gOat cheese pizza with spinach and artichOkes

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyBeginner

If you crave a good pizza but are tired of the same old take-out, sink your teeth into this cheesy slice!

The sauce is my variation of Giada De Laurentiis' spicy Diavolo sauce and then topped with the earthy flavors of spinach, goat cheese, and artichokes. So the next time you have an urge for pizza, instead of ordering out, make this mouthwatering one at home!

My first time having Diavolo sauce was actually at a wood fire pizza restaurant in Denver called Pizza Republica- it was the sauce on their Diavola pizza that had smoked mozzarella, spicy salumi, and hot capicola.

I cheated big time when I had the pizza there because I'm not supposed to eat nitrates...but it was so worth it!
