1-2 pre-made 12” pizza shells
1 1/2 c. crushed San Marzano tomatoes
3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 or 2 (depending on size yellow peppers, cut into thin strips
1 small jar marinated artichoke hearts, quartered
1 c. pitted kalamata olives, halved
Fresh oregano and rosemary, minced
Preheat a pizza stone in your oven to 450 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour before you want to bake your pizzas.
In a small bowl, mix the garlic into the crushed tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Brush the pizza shells with some olive oil and spread with a thin layer of tomato sauce. Top with the pepper strips, quartered artichoke pieces, and olives and season with a bit more salt, pepper, and the chopped fresh herbs.
Slide the prepped pizzas into the hot oven and bake about 10 minutes until the crust is crispy and the vegetables roasted.
