Top This: Stuffed Artichoke Pizza (à la Nonna's LES Pizzeria)

Confession, up front: this pizza is labour intensive, but worth it. Creamed spinach—the kind you would order on the side of your steak at Peter Luger—along with pools of fresh mozzarella form the base of this knock-out pie, lending it a subtle, sublimely spinachy flavor. And it doesn't stop there. At Nonna's LES, they top the spinach slice with a ricotta-stuffed roasted artichokes, draped with roasted red peppers. Word to the wise: you're going to need a fork for this cheesy behemoth.

What You'll Need (for one pizza)

*At Nonna's LES, they season their housemade breadcrumbs with minced garlic, grated Parmesan, and a secret blend of herbs. When it comes to seasoning your breadcrumbs, Nonna's manager Steven Yadlosky says, "Get creative."
