Ingredients

  • sourdough crust recipe *
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese
  • goat cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 red onion medium sized, thinly sliced
  • 10 cherry or grape tomatoes quartered
  • 16 black olives sliced
  • 3/4 bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 10 ounces artichoke hearts halved
  • ground black pepper for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. The morning of or the night before, prepare sourdough pizza crust of choice.
  2. When ready to make your meal, pre-bake crust according to its instructions.
  3. Combine olive oil, thyme, and oregano in a small dish.
  4. Brush the oil paste over the pre-baked pizzas.
  5. Sprinkle about a 1/3 cup of the mozzarella cheese over each pizza. This will help your toppings stick to the crust.
  6. Add the rest of the toppings, except the remaining mozzarella -- crumbled goat cheese, red onion slices, quartered grape tomatoes, black olive slices, bell pepper slices, and halved artichoke hearts.
  7. Divide the remaining mozzarella between the two pizzas.
  8. Sprinkle each pizza with ground black pepper.
  9. Pop pizzas back in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 to 15 minutes, until cheese is crispy in places and bubbly.
  10. Let cool slightly before cutting into slices. Enjoy!
