As I was making the pizza this week, my husband stated “this is a very you pizza.” He’s right – I love artichokes, I love beet greens, and I love goat cheese. This pizza is actually inspired by a pizza I had a couple years ago when we were visiting Maine, trying to decide if we wanted to move here. For one of our meals, we ate at Geddy’s in Bar Harbor and I had a most delicious pizza. I knew I wanted to recreate it eventually. They use spinach instead of beet greens but we got beet greens in our CSA share this week so that’s what I used.
For this pizza, I used my standard pizza dough. I topped it with some homemade basil pesto (also a CSA goodie), marinated artichoke hearts, torn beet greens, and goat cheese.
It cooked for about 10 minutes at 475 F.
I really enjoyed this pizza. I liked the tangy goat cheese with the artichokes. The husband said it was “not bad” but that he wouldn’t go out of his way to eat it. He’s not a big goat cheese fan. Or artichoke fan. I thought it would have been better with more goat cheese. Not surprisingly, the husband disagreed and thought it would have been better with mozzarella.
