    O.k. as is, but to me it's way better when using a white sauce (olive oil w/ minced garlic, warmed in microwave to infuse the oil) or a pesto sauce. We also like it with a stronger cheese like romano mixed w/ mozzerella. Fresh basil is really good on this too.  -  11 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! I used a whole-wheat Boboli thin pizza crust, and instead of spaghetti sauce I just used plain tomato sauce sprinkled with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheece. The artichoke hearts were sooo good cooked with the garlic. I had some Gouda cheese that I had to use, so I used that instead of Colby. This was the best pizza I've ever made! I think next time I will double the garlic. Oh, and I definitely didn't use that much cheese! Maybe 1.5 cups of shredded cheese.  -  29 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This pizza tasted really good for the first time that I made it with a good cheesy texture and delicious artichokes that make it worthwhile eating for one.  -  07 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
