Why order a pizza when you can make one in less time than it takes for it to be delivered? If you keep the pantry stocked with tomato sauce and the freezer filled with pizza dough, fresh and delicious pizza is only minutes away. Tonight, top your pie with sun dried tomatoes and artichokes. This pizza makes an excellent impromptu dinner party meal when paired with salty olives and a quick side salad. For the recipe,
1 12- to 14-inch pizza crust
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup pizza sauce
1 cup chopped baby artichokes or artichoke hearts, frozen or water-packed and drained
2 cups shredded soy, low-fat, or regular mozzarella
4 oz. goat cheese, in small pieces
1 cup dry sundried tomatoes, reconstituted, or 1/3 to 1/2 cup oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Prebake fresh pizza crust, if using, for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool slightly.
- Brush oil on crust. Top crust with sauce and artichokes. Sprinkle with soy mozzarella, goat cheese, and sundried tomatoes.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
