Artichoke and Red Pepper Pizza
A sophisticated pizza for garlic lovers - that is ME.
This is soooooooooooooooooo good. Can’t remember where I got it from, though. It is not mine.
5 garlic cloves - I used 7
¼ to 1/3 cup olive oil
2 red bell peppers cut into ¼-inch strips
1 jar Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms drained - I actually didn’t use mushrooms
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves - I forgot to put that in too
1 (6-oz.) jar marinated artichoke hearts - drained and chopped - I put them in the food processor
1 can sliced ripe olives - 2 1/4 oz. can
8 oz (2 cups) shredded Mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Heat oven to 350.
In food processor bowl with metal blade or blender container, process garlic 10 to 15 seconds or until finely chopped. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the oil. With machine running, add remaining oil all at once through feed tube or opening in top of blender lid. Process 20 to 30 seconds or just until blended.
Spread Garlic Mixture over pizza shell.
Heat reserved 1 tablespoon oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat until hot; cook and stir pepper in oil until crisp-tender - 3 to 5 minutes. Layer peppers, mushrooms, basil, artichokes and olives over garlic mixture; Top with cheeses
