So, I think I have a pizza/flatbread obsession.
I think I might need an intervention. Just to let you know what I mean go here, here and here. Oh, and here – one of my all time faves.
I made this pizza a few weeks ago randomly during the day when I was having a pizza/artichoke craving and it ended up being even more fantastic than my imagination anticipated.
See, when it comes to food my imagination is all over the map, especially when I’m having a craving for something specific. So, while I was making my pizza dough I was thinking artichokes and it suddenly starts screaming all kinds of things, like “feta cheese! prosciutto! pesto!”.
Unfortunately, it drives my husband crazy because if he’s having a craving for something and he tells me – the imagination goes into overdrive. I now have a challenge, a purpose, a foodie job, if you will. He’s not so stoked about that.
He wants plain, straightforward, no fru fru. He wants a plain piece of grilled chicken, period the end, and ketchup is his favorite seasoning. God, that is so not fun. I do have to say he does know his sushi – as a matter of fact he introduced it to me when we met.
Ok, so, anyway I decided to entertain these ideas that my imagination had…you know…to give it the benefit of the doubt and all. Because, really, my imagination is what drives this meek little blog.
And my appetite.
- 2 cups grape tomatoes, washed
- 1 14 oz can artichoke hearts, quartered (you'll probably use half the can)
- 1 batch pizza crust
- 1 cup prepared pesto
- 2 oz prosciutto, torn into pieces
- 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, place tomatoes and artichoke hearts. drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper. Roast for 10-15 minutes, or until slightly browned and sizzling.
- Increase oven heat to 500.
- Drizzle a baking pan with olive oil and spread half of the pizza dough out thin. Drizzle with more oil.
- Spread pesto over dough, sprinkle with artichokes, tomatoes, prosciutto and feta.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, until edges are starting to brown.
- Cut into squares.
