Ingredients
  • 1 Pizza Base
  • 1 Cups of Mozzarella (Grated)
  • 300 Grams of Artichoke Hearts (in Brine)

Recipe

Make Artichoke Sauce:

Preheat oven to 250°C. Wash the fresh produce. Pick parsley leaves, discarding stems. Drain artichokes, (reserving 3) and add to food processor, along with parsley, parmesan and 2 TBS olive oil. Blitz to a thick paste, season with salt and pepper.

Add Mozzarella:

Spread artichoke sauce over the pizza base. Spread grated mozzarella over the base with more on the outer edges than in the centre.

Add Tomatoes & Asparagus:

Break up the remaining artichokes and sprinkle over the top. Remove woody ends of asparagus and add to the pizza, along with tomatoes (we left ours whole).

Cook Pizza:

Add pizza to the oven. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes until the base is browned and the tomatoes have blistered, or until done to your liking.

You Plate It:
