  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 packet instant yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)

  • 3/4 cup warm water


For Building the Pizza :

1 jar of Artichoke hearts (store-bought)

1 cup pesto sauce (store-bought)

1 jalapeno (chopped)

1 cup Mozzarella cheese


Drain the water and rinse the artichoke's hearts. Then slice them into smaller pieces and keep them aside as a topping.


Store-bought or you could make your own pesto sauce.

  • After 2 hours, when the dough has risen, use your hands to gently deflate it and transfer it to a lightly floured surface.

  • Then knead the dough for 2 to 3 mins or until it turns into a smooth ball.

  • Divide the dough into four equal portions.
