Broccoli Rabe, Artichoke and Olive Pizza Recipe

We love broccoli rabe and this one with artichokes and the combination of fresh tomato,olives, sauce and alfredo has a unique taste! I put some on top so you can see how good it looks!


 
I really over did it with the cheese... sorry folks all the olives and chopped artichokes are on underneath, you will have to just use your imagination. I can assure you this pizza is worth every minute of your time to make!

1 homemade pizza dough (around 1 lb or store bought dough)
1/2 cup Alfredo sauce sauce homemade or store bought
1 cup chopped cooked Broccoli Rabe or( spinach frozen and drained then blotted dry)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 minced garlic cloves in olive oil
2 fresh plum tomatoes sliced thinly on a slicing tool (mandolin) or sharp knife
1/4 cup sliced Kalamata olives
1/2 can artichokes hearts chopped  (around 4 to 6)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup of marinara sauce homemade of store bought
oregano, basil and parsley dried
Shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
olive oil

Stretch your dough, brush with the Alfredo sauce. Mix the broccoli rabe or spinach, garlic powder and salt, drop by tablespoons of the broccoli rabe or spinach onto the dough trying to evenly distribute. Next place some artichoke hearts on top and sliced olives. Next end with thinly sliced tomatoes and the tomato sauce just dropping on top with a spoon . Add minced garlic, sprinkling evenly. Add lightly with a little of all three dried herbs and then a generous amount of shredded mozzarella of cheese on top. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake in a hot oven till brown and bubbly on 425 degree hot oven around 40 minutes.

Alfredo Sauce Recipe: (makes a large amount) So have pasta too! Great on Fettuccine

1 quart heavy cream
5 ounces Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Fontina cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
4 tablespoons butter


Add butter and garlic in a pan saute till garlic is soft. Add the spices, cream and stir. Simmer on very low around 15 minutes, add cheeses at the end till blended and melted.

Sounds like a great combination. I don't very often find broccoli rabe around here, but when I do, I scarf it up. Next time I find it, I'll be making this pizza, Claudia. Thanks
