This artichoke pizza is so cheesy and delicious, with a unique combination of flavors—garlic, artichokes, and of course cheese. It’s perfect for your next pizza night!
Does your family love pizza as much as mine does? Of course we love a classic pepperoni pizza, but it’s fun to make more unique flavors like Chicken Alfredo Pizza, BBQ Chicken Pizza, or even this artichoke pizza!
Spinach artichoke pizza – a family fav!
Hello again! It’s Alicia from The Baker Upstairs, and I’m back with another delicious recipe to share with you!
I think my kids would eat pizza for dinner every single night if I let them. We usually attempt to have pizza night at home every Saturday night. It’s always fun for me to experiment with different toppings and flavor combinations.
My go-to pizza dough recipe makes four balls of pizza dough, which is the perfect amount for my family and gives us enough for leftovers. I usually make one into a plain cheese pizza for my extra picky kid, but the sky’s the limit with our other pizza flavors!
This artichoke pizza is a new favorite at our house, and I love that it’s a little different than a typical pizza recipe. Instead of a red pizza sauce, it has a simple olive oil and garlic base. Next, the pizza is topped with chopped marinated artichokes, two kinds of cheese, and baked to crispy and cheesy perfection!
How to Make artichoke pizza
Besides the pizza dough, this pizza only requires FIVE ingredients for the topping!
- olive oil
- minced garlic
- marinated artichokes
- mozzarella cheese
- parmesan cheese
OVEN. Preheat the oven to 500 with a baking stone or overturned cookie sheet inside.
TOPPINGS. Spread the pizza dough out into a large circle on a piece of parchment sprinkled with cornmeal. Spread the olive oil over the top of the pizza dough, then sprinkle the minced garlic and chopped artichokes over the top. Top with the mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.
BAKE. Use a pizza peel or thin cutting board to transfer the pizza to the preheated baking stone. Bake 9-11 minutes, until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is hot and bubbling. Serve immediately while it’s nice and hot. 🙂
pizza Tips and Tricks
INGREDIENTS: I usually find marinated artichokes in a jar in the canned vegetables section of the grocery store, but I’ve also found them in the international section in some stores. I like to grate my own mozzarella so it will melt better. If you’re in a hurry, pre-shredded mozzarella will work just fine!
BAKING: Using a very hot oven is crucial for a crisp crust, and the most delicious melty hot cheese. Just be extra careful putting the pizza in and pulling it out! I prefer to bake my pizza on a piece of parchment paper, on top of a pre-heated baking stone, but you could definitely bake it on a pizza pan if you prefer.
LEFTOVERS: You can store any leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days. Just place slices in an airtight container, separating each slice with a paper towel or piece parchment paper. To reheat, put it back in the oven at a low temperature until heated through, or if you’re in a hurry you can reheat in the microwave.
The garlic and artichokes give this pizza lots of flavor, and the melty and gooey cheese is totally irresistible. If you love pizza as much as we do, you definitely need to give it a try!
