10 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 c. finely chopped spinach
1 1/4 c. shredded mozzarella

1 Garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. parsley, minced
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 can crescent sheet dough
Preheat oven to 350° and line a small cooking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, artichoke hearts, spinach, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Form into one large ball.
Roll crescent dough out on prepared baking sheet and place cheese ball in center. Wrap dough around cheese ball and seal. Flip over so that the clean side is up.
