It’s almost the weekend (woo hoo!) and I’m craving pizza! I’m so addicted to the crispy prosciutto and the tangy artichokes in this recipe. The pizza is super cheesy and then topped with MORE cheese, because ummm…well why wouldn’t you!?
It’s so easy to make and you really just need to raid your fridge and pantry for the pizza toppings. You practically have all the ingredients in your kitchen. YES!!!!
It’s been a busy week (what’s new?!) so I’m totally ready to sit back with this pizza on Friday night with a big glass of wine. And this weekend is going to be quite busy too, but I’m excited for it! I’m ready to get my mind off of work and start cooking, photographing and eating all the delicious things. So, here’s our plan for the weekend,
Make this pizza…
Eat ALL of this…OK and maybe share with my husband…maybe…
Shop for fabric for our dining room…
Eat more delicious food…
Practice for my cooking class coming up next week…
Eat more delicious food…
Hmmm, maybe there’s a pattern there! But I’m OK with that. Food always seems to be a good motivator for me, I tend to get more things done when I know there’ll be delicious food at the end of it!
This pizza will be my motivation this weekend. It’s so easy to make and you can have this on the table in quick time. No joke, from start to finish it was on the table within 30 minutes, so how can you NOT make this pizza!?
The artichokes are tangy and flavorful and the prosciutto is crispy, salty and tastes like bacon. SOOOOO GOOD!! It’s cheesy and gooey and the crust is crunchy but soft on the inside.
This pizza is my new favorite meal. I’m obsessed with homemade pizza lately and this charcuterie pizza has been my go to recipe. It’s so easy because you really get to throw whatever is in your fridge onto this pizza! Grab any cheese, olives, meats from your fridge and raid your pantry for the unused bottle of marinated artichokes that I KNOW you have in there. Or hey, mix it up and add sundried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, salami and/or ham (because I would never make you choose between them), mushrooms or olives. There are so many ways to make this charcuterie pizza, I’m so excited to see what you all come up with!
