Midweek Margherita Pizza with Artichokes
Recipe and Pictures by Caroline
Frozen or fresh pizza dough (click here for recipe)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Dash dried oregano
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
6 oz mozzarella cheese, sliced (about 10 1/8 inch slices)
6.5 oz bottle marinated artichoke hearts
¼ cup fresh basil leaves
Sea salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees (or per dough package directions). Lightly oil a baking sheet. Stretch dough on prepared sheet and brush with oil, making sure to coat edges well; sprinkle lightly with oregano and sea salt.
- Place slices of freshly sliced mozzarella cheese over dough, leaving some space between slices. Top with tomatoes and artichokes; season lightly with salt and pepper.
- Bake pizza until browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Top with fresh basil either the last couple of minutes of cooking time, or after you pull it out of the oven.
