    Tasty pizza recipe. I substituted the artichokes with peperoncino peppers and feta cheese with ricotta cheese which gave it the Mediterranean pizza style taste.

    So good! Substituted diced chicken in place of the ham, added chopped red onion and used 1/2 black olives -1/2 Kalamatta Greek Olives.

    I've made this pizza over and over again and get rave reviews everytime. It is also amazing as an appetizer. I sometimes make my own pizza dough for it which works beautifully as well.
