Basil, Artichoke, and Prosciutto Pizza

This pizza is extremely easy to make and extremely delicious to eat! You still get your crust, meat, and cheese without feeling too heavy after finishing a couple of slices J. There’s a funny story to this particular pizza, too, that I will post soon. In the meantime, whip one up and enjoy!

1 homemade or pre-made pizza crust (Trader Joe's has awesome dough!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
10 thin slices of prosciutto
10-15 fresh basil leaves
Preheat oven to 425ยบ F
Allow raw pizza dough to rise before cooking. Place dough on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread a light layer of olive oil over it and cook for about 10 minutes, or until dough is lightly browned and slightly risen.
Remove from oven and spread tomato sauce over crust. Top crust with garlic, salt and pepper. Add cheese. Place chopped artichoke hearts over cheese. Lay strips of prosciutto side by side over entire crust. Bake until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Top baked pizza with fresh basil.
