Spring Vegetable Pizza


   Make me, make me....I'm super delicious!! We are pizza lover's in our family. Usually
   once a week we have pizza. Homemade pizza is the best! I love the fresh taste of this
   pizza. Try and enjoy!

                                            Spring Vegetable Pizza

   1 jar (12 ounces) marinated artichoke hearts, drained reserving marinade
   1 large bunch of asparagus trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces.
   1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
   1 fresh pizza dough, homemade or store bought
   1 or 2 garlic cloves minced
   salt and pepper
   1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
   7 ounces Gruyere cheese grated, about 3 cups

   Preheat oven to 500 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a medium
   bowl, combine artichoke hearts, asparagus and tomatoes. On a large sheet of
   parchment paper, brush dough with artichoke heart marinade and roll out dough
   into a long oval shape.
   Transfer dough on parchment to a rimmed baking sheet and top with vegetables
   and cheese leaving a 1 inch border. Brush border with marinade and season
   pizza with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Bake pizza 10 to 15 minutes,
   rotating halfway through. You want the pizza crust to be a golden brown.

  50. I don't like pizza...but after looking at this one I'm convinced I would like pizza if it looked like this more often! This looks AMAZING! And I love that it doesn't have pizza sauce (since I am not a fan). Even though I am lactose intolerant, I'm pretty sure that by looks alone this pizza is going on to my "worth it" list of forbidden foods.

  51. We would love this pizza. I was surprised to see the temp so high to bake, I don't think I have ever went that high. Thanks for sharing.
