Chicken Bacon And Artichoke Pizza

I know, another pizza, but YUM. Oh, yum.. I was in an artichokey (yes, you are correct, that is not a word. However, I am still going to use it!) mood the other day so we had this Chicken Bacon And Artichoke Pizza and let me tell you, IT WAS DELICIOUS!
How can you not love that garlic in the background with soft shredded chicken and then that crisp turkey bacon? YUM! You definitely have to give this pizza a try.
Even if it is just a little bit out of your comfort zone, trust me. You are going to love it! The whole wheat crust is so soft and really adds extra depth to the whole dish. I can still taste how delicious it was. Not even kidding. You must try this! Have I said that before? Let me say it again, you MUST try this! If you don’t think that the rest of your family will be on board make personal pan pizzas so that they can still have all their favorite toppings and you can treat yourself to this and you will be in heaven. Do it. You can thank me later.

Is Artichoke Good For You?

Artichokes are packed with nutrients that are good for you.

Artichokes are low fat, and high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Artichokes rank among the most antioxidant-rich of all vegetables.

Can Pizza Be Made Ahead and Frozen?

You can make pizza ahead and then freeze it til you are ready to bake it.

For best results, you should par-bake the crust.

Par-baking for 3-5 minutes before freezing will help the crust be crisp when baked.

How Long Will Pizza Keep? 

Left over pizza can be kept for 5 days in the refrigerator.

Pizza should be stored covered with foil or in a plastic storage bag.

  • This was perfect – the sauce especially came together, even after looking a bit thin (we’d used lower-fat milk) – really worked like magic. Thank you for introducing us to a new kind of pizza!

  • This looks so good! I made a pizza that had artichokes on it last summer and it was delicious.
    I am in the mood for pizza too.
    About the asparagus recipe- I reduced the amount of oil in the vinaigrette and didn’t toss the asparagus in it, because I like just a little dressing. I just drizzled it on there. I really liked. It isn’t something I would want to eat every day because I like my veggies simple mostly, but I really liked it. If you try it and don’t like it- I apologize in advance!
