Expert Tips

Artichoke hearts add distinctive flavor to this easy pizza. Serve the pizza for a light supper, or cut into small squares for a great meatless appetizer. If roasted red bell peppers aren't available, use jarred pimiento.

Chicken, Artichoke and Red Onion Pizza: Add 1 cup cubed cooked chicken or turkey with the artichokes in step 2.
