Mediterranean White Pizza

     I was on the treadmill at the gym watching Food Network, of course, and I came up with this delicious white pizza recipe. Sure people find it odd that I workout to Food Network but honestly that's when I get my best ideas! Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives was on and Guy was visiting this great pizza place, right away I knew what was for dinner. I am huge fan of veggies on pizza and this time I was thinking more of a Mediterranean mix. In order to keep the pizza easy I used Pillsbury pizza dough. I usually opt for that or whole wheat dough if I can find it in the store. Another option is to stop by your local pizza joint and get fresh dough from them. It is much easier than making it yourself and especially if you are in a pinch. After I precooked my dough for 5 minutes I spread the part-skim ricotta over the top. Next I covered the ricotta with part-skim mozzarella and layered the toppings of artichokes, kalamata olives and arugula. I baked the pizza at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes until it was cheesy and crispy. This pizza was so delicious that I am already planning to make it again.


Pillsbury Pizza dough
1cup Part-skim Ricotta
2-3cups Part-skim mozzarella
1/2cup sliced artichokes
1/2cup kalamata olives halved
1/2cup arugala
Pepper and garlic powder for seasoning
