can (14 oz) Progresso™ artichoke hearts, drained, chopped

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease 15x10x1-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. Sprinkle with cornmeal, tapping off any excess.

  • 4 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.

Expert Tips

Look for basil pesto in glass jars in the pasta aisle or in the refrigerated pasta section in plastic containers.

If you’re an olive fan, top the pizza with sliced ripe olives or Greek olives to continue the Mediterranean theme.

Garnish with chopped fresh basil after baking to add more color to this pizza.
