National Artichoke Hearts Day | Creamy Green Pizza for #SundaySupper – The Foodie Patootie

National Artichoke Hearts Day | Creamy Green Pizza for #SundaySupper

This Sunday Supper is all about greens. After all, St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and let’s face it- greens are delicious! Today is also National Artichoke Hearts Day. If you are new around these parts, I’m cooking through the food holidays on this blog so it totally worked out that I could participate in Sunday Supper and have my recipe for the food holiday.

Creamy Green Pizza via | #recipe #foodholiday #pizza #artichokeheartsA week ago I had the unbelievable experience of visiting HSN and meeting some quality chefs whom I’ve followed for quite a while now. (You can read my part 1 recap post here. Part 2 is coming soon.) Since I was part of the live audience the next day and had the chance to watch Chef Curtis Stone and Chef Donatella Arpaia in action on the set, I received a goodie bag packed with a Curtis tote, recipes from all #HSNCooks chefs and 3 bags of Donatella’s pizza dough. I received regular, Italian Herb, and Garlic pizza doughs so I used the Italian Herb for this recipe, but any pizza dough will do (although probably won’t be as great, hehe).

I had a small struggle with this pizza, quite honestly. I originally used fresh artichoke leaves, but they browned really quickly in the oven. Then I made sure to use a fair amount of lemon juice on new leaves, but they still browned. In the end, it worked out just fine. Plus, how can anything be bad when goat cheese is involved?

My favorite part of the pizza was the topping of arugula and fresh lemon juice that I finished the pie with. Peppery arugula and bright, sour lemon makes a combo of flavors that I’ll never tire of.

Creamy Green Pizza via | #recipe #foodholiday #pizza #artichokeheartsMy love for pizza exists for more than just the grease, believe it or not. I love that with a pizza, your possibilities are endless. Any combination is fair game, as long as it’s something you enjoy, right? Therefore, you won’t find any measurements in the recipe that follows. Just put as much, or as little, of each ingredient as you’d like.

You can even change the whole pizza pie and make something entirely different. Just make sure yours includes artichoke heart for the food holiday, mmkay?

    Hahahaha I agree… pizza is much more than “grease”. 😉 I love your version, healthy yet packed with flavour and delicious! Believe it or not my favourite pizza topping is prosciutto, arugula and Parmigiano! YUM! 🙂

    Your pizza looks terrific! I am a huge artichoke fan…but have never added them to pizza. I’m going to remedy that ASAP!

  4. I am so with you on the goat cheese! This sounds like amazing pizza.

  5. Cheryl — March 16, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    • Jennifer — March 20th, 2014 @ 11:20 am

      Haha, she is amazing, and so are her products and food!! To me, a pizza isn’t complete with fresh arugula and goat cheese, it’s just not.

  11. Tracy — March 18, 2014 at 6:12 am

    That pizza looks absolutely delicious! Can’t wait to try it!

  12. Laura Hunter — March 18, 2014 at 10:24 am

    I love, love, love artichoke pizza. I really need to start making pizza more often again.

    • Jennifer — March 20th, 2014 @ 11:19 am

      I love artichoke anything!

  13. That’s an unbelievably beautiful pie!

    • Jennifer — March 20th, 2014 @ 11:06 am

      Thanks, Dorothy!

  14. Tammi @ Momma's Meals — March 19, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    I love this! I always make pizza differently every time I make it! 🙂

    • Jennifer — March 20th, 2014 @ 10:59 am

      Me too. 🙂 And it’s so much fun to make, especially when it comes to making your own pizza dough.

  15. Anne @ Webicurean — March 22, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    I definitely want to get in on those artichoke hearts! I could eat them all day, but they do have to be fresh. I don’t know why, but the marinated and canned varieties just aren’t as good. I’ll bet this pizza is amazing!

    • Jennifer — March 25th, 2014 @ 1:38 pm

      I had to stop myself from eating the whole pie!
