At its core, a good artichoke pizza recipe is all about balancing flavors and textures. You want to create a crust that's crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside.

Then, you'll need to layer on a delicious tomato sauce and toppings that complement the artichokes' delicate flavor.


1 lb. pizza dough, 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, 1/4 cup red onion, 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, 1 tbsp. olive oil

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 450°F. This will ensure that your oven is hot enough to cook the pizza quickly and evenly.

Step 2: Roll Out the Dough

Roll out your pizza dough on a floured surface. Make sure to create a circular shape that's about 1/4 inch thick. If you're using store-bought pizza dough, make sure to follow the instructions on the packaging.

Step 3: Add the Pizza Sauce

Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the pizza dough. Use a spoon to make sure that the sauce reaches the edges of the pizza.

Step 4: Add the Artichoke Heart

Spread the chopped artichoke hearts, red onion, and Kalamata olives over the pizza sauce. Make sure to distribute the toppings evenly so that each slice has a balanced flavor.

Step 5: Add the Cheese

Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese over the pizza toppings. Again, make sure to distribute the cheese evenly.

Step 6: Add the Fresh Parsley 

Finish off your pizza with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. This will add a bright, fresh flavor to the pizza and help it cook evenly in the oven.

Step 7: Bake the Pizza

Place your pizza in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Delicious Artichoke Pizza!

Once your pizza is finished baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, slice it up and enjoy your delicious homemade artichoke pizza!
