I had half a can of artichoke hearts in the refrigerator to use up, along with a refrigerator pie crust, so I decided to use them as I make Super Bowl munchies to graze on. The pie crust is basically a wonderful, flaky cradle for the hot artichoke dip. Here's what you need:
Preheat oven to 425.
1 refrigerated pie crust, brought to room temperature
1/2 can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
3T cream cheese
1 tsp minced garlic
3T parmesan cheese
couple dashes of hot sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella
Lay pie crust on a pizza pan or cookie sheet. In a small bowl, mix together everything but the mozzarella. Spread the mixture onto the center of the pie crust. Sprinkle with the mozzarella, and then fold the crust over the edges of the dip. Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until it looks like this:
Use a pizza cutter to cut into slices.
Make sure there are other people around to eat this with you so you're not tempted to eat the whole thing by yourself like I was ;)
