Preparing Artichoke Pizza
Preheat your oven to at least 450 degrees for 30 minutes or longer.
Spread out pizza dough on floured surface.
If you have a pizza peel, you can create your pizza on it (after flouring).
Start by spreading the sauce all over the base. This pizza uses Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce Thinly yet evenly, leaving a margin for the crust.
Add the largest toppings first – typically meat or seafood, then the smaller toppings.
Add cheese last, and sprinkle it all over to help keep the toppings in place when it melts.
This pizza has the following toppings:
- Black Olives
- Roasted Bell Pepper
Whilst this pizza is tasty by itself, yet why not make some homemade garlic bread as well?

Artichoke contain healthy chemicals that can reduce nausea, vomiting, spasms, and gas. They also help to lower cholesterol and protect the liver.
When making Artichoke Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
Having a good dough mixer can make all the difference. You don’t want to be manually kneading forever, do you?
Having a nice oil jug to pour olive oil gives you a decadent edge. They don’t cost that much either!
I use quality wooden boards constantly when making pizzas, botth to carry dough balls and to use when slicing baked pizzas.
Also called sweet pepper, paprika or capsicum, Bell Peppers are a fruit of plants in the Capsicum species. Green Chili Peppers are not a different species, but rather just the unripe state of red peppers. Green Chili Peppers are the most aggressively flavoured, being naturally acidic and sometimes a little bitter.
Red peppers are sweeter and gentler, and used either cooked or raw. Orange and Yellow peppers are individual varieties rather than stages between green and red peppers. They have been specially bred to be sweet and gentle.
These are all true, believe me!
