pizza pizzazz!

Serves 4-6
The Dough: 1 pre-made 12 oz ball of dough (thawed), 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp rosemary, 1/8 cup flour (for rolling). Prep: Roll out dough into a round shape (should be about 1/2" thick all around). Pinch the border of dough, to form a crust. Take a fork and puncture the dough evenly about 12x over surface. Bake on 400 degree F for 9-10 min. Note if using a pizza stone, place stone in oven while pre-heating, so pizza enters oven on a hot stone.
The Sauce: 1/2 c artichoke hearts, 1/4 c sun dried tomatoes, 1/8 c pine nuts, 1/2 c ricotta cheese, 1/8 cup olive oil, pinch of salt, pinch of pepper. Prep: Blend all ingredients in food processor (about 60 sec until smooth). With a spatula, evenly spread the sauce over the crust.
The Toppings: 1/2 c fresh spinach, 1 med vine tomato thinly sliced, 1/4 of a white onion thinly sliced, 1/4 c thinly sliced mushrooms, 16 pieces of turkey pepperoni, 1 c mozzarella cheese, 1/4 tsp black pepper. Layer all toppings on top of dough/sauce. Bake an additional 10-14 min (until ingredients look softened, cheese is melted and edges of crust are slightly browned). Remove from oven and evenly pour 1-2 Tbsp of melted butter atop pizza. Slice w/ a pizza cutter. Enjoy w/ a glass of pinot grigio if you'd like.
