An impressive-looking appetizer that combines the flavours of a white pizza with a spinach dip. Recipe by Hungry Happenings.


  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 box (300 g) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup creamy Alfredo sauce
  • 1 cup freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup diced chicken breast, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil and drained,) divided
  • 3 sticks mozzarella string cheese
  • 1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated Pizza Crust
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 10-inch oven-safe non-stick skillet (or cast iron skillet) with 1 teaspoon butter.
  2. Squeeze excess water out of spinach.
  3. Stir spinach into the Alfredo sauce. Add half of the shredded mozzarella cheese along with 2/3 of the diced chicken and 2/3 of the sun-dried tomatoes. Stir just until combined.
  4. Cut each string cheese into 4 pieces. Unroll pizza dough and cut it into 12 squares.
  5. Brush egg white over pieces of pizza dough. Set one piece of the string cheese on a square of dough. Attach opposing corners of the dough, then pinch around the edges to seal the dough. Pinch and roll into a ball.
  6. Set balls of dough around the edge of the buttered skillet, creating one row of 12.
  7. Spoon the spinach mixture into the centre of the skillet.
  8. Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil and sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese over top.
  9. Sprinkle some of the remaining mozzarella cheese and all the remaining chicken and sun-dried tomatoes over the spinach dip, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
  10. Bake for 32-35 minutes, until the pizza crust turns deep golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
