    1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease a round baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
    2. Shape pizza dough into a log and cut into 16 pieces. Roll pieces into balls and place around the edges of the dish. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
    3. Combine light cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic, red chilli flakes, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spoon into the middle of the dish.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until pizza dough is puffed up and golden, about 25 to 30 minutes.

    Cook's Note:

    Dip can be doubled and saved for a second batch by adding another brick of cream cheese and the other ingredients, which will use an entire can of drained artichoke hearts and a full bag of baby spinach that has been cooked in the microwave and drained well and an entire 250g package of shredded mozzarella.
