Artichoke and Olive Pizza

Tomatoes have been my favorite food since childhood, but even hardcore tomato sauce lovers like myself need to change up our pizzas every once in a while. This Artichoke and Olive Pizza has an artichoke tapenade base. While it might seem that using artichokes and olives both in a sauce and as toppings would be overkill, the addition of roasted red peppers, fresh garlic and spinach create a medley of flavors that have landed themselves right at the top of my list of favorite pizza combinations. You won't miss the tomatoes, and you certainly won't miss the cheese!

This pizza is phenomenal! That sauce is amazing. Had my doubts. Sauteed up some button mushrooms and onions and put on top of the spinach with the artichoke hearts, olives and red peppers. Delicious!! Thanks so much!
