Four Cheese Twisted Spinach Christmas Tree

Four Cheese Twisted Spinach Christmas Tree

Another holiday table showstopper for you guys!   This fantabulous festive cheesy spinach Christmas tree was SOOO SCRUMPTIOUS AND SOOO EASY to make using, believe it or not… frozen pizza dough!!

Sautéed onions, garlic, and chillis are mixed with fresh blanched spinach and 4 kinds of cheese… I used a combo of cream cheese, parmesan, comté, and cheddar to make a thick paste, then spread it out on the pizza dough, cut and twisted into a tree shape baked to golden perfection with lashings of garlic butter.  So gorgeously divine! 

The inspo for this fabulously festive Christmas Tree was from @itsalwaysautumnblog… I twisted it up (literally 😜) and changed the onion, chilli, and garlic powder to fresh, and swapping around the cheeses and increasing the seasonings.  Autumn has such an easy-to-follow, simple video on her site of how to make the tree. The link is attached to my recipe… I promise this one is easy, so go on and give it a go!!
