Artichoke Zucchini White Pizza

Homemade pizza with goodness from A to Z: Alfredo sauce, artichokes, and zucchini. Delicious!
Love veggie pizza?  I do, too.  I've been hungry for something different and I had a jar of artichoke hearts in the pantry, so I decided to invent a veggie pizza with a bit of a twist - I decided to make it white.  So I bought some packaged pizza crust, a jar of Alfredo sauce, and a zucchini to add to the artichoke and here's what I came up with. 

A to Z Artichoke Zucchini White Pizza
(Serves 2 to 3)

1 purchased pizza crust
extra virgin olive oil
1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup sliced black olives
half of a 15-ounce jar purchased Alfredo sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place pizza crust on pizza pan.  Heat a drizzle of olive oil in iron skillet or saute pan.  Add sliced zucchini, the chopped onion, and the garlic; saute for about 5 minutes or until just barely soft.  Meanwhile, spread a thin layer of Alfredo sauce on pizza crust.  Top with mozzarella cheese, then the sauteed onion, garlic, zucchini mixture. Arrange artichoke hearts and olives on top then shake on a generous amount of Parmesan cheese.  Place in oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes until cheeses are melted and crust is brown.  Remove from oven, brush edge of hot pizza crust with olive oil.  Slice and serve. 


My homemade-up pizza recipe's a keeper!  We really liked it and I'm glad the pizza crust came two to a package because I'm looking forward to fixing it again.  As always, substitute to please your own tastes.  I hadn't planned on the black olives, but my husband suggested we add those and they worked well even though my "white pizza" wasn't quite as white. 

P.S. Did you know that February 9th is National Pizza Day? Use this pizza recipe to celebrate!
