Ingredients

4 steamed artichokes
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for baking sheet
1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough
1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
2 plum tomatoes, thiny sliced crosswise
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
3 ounces Pecorino Romano cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
1/4 cup fresh basil


Use a paring knife to trim away all of the artichokes' fibrous leaves and chokes so only the hearts remain. Slice the hearts thinly crosswise. In a small bowl, toss artichoke hearts with lemon juice.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet. Stretch dough on prepared sheet and brush with oil, making sure to coat edges well. Scatter spoonfuls of ricotta over dough. Top with tomatoes, artichokes, olives, and 3/4 of the Pecorino. Season with salt and pepper.


Bake pizza until browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Top cooked pizza with basil and reserved Pecorino

Notes

The meaty artichoke hearts provide a nice balance to the light and creamy ricotta cheese. Take premade dough out of the fridge a few hours before you plan on using it to let it rise.
