Add Cookin’ Greens Designer’s Mix to pan and combine to mix with the artichokes. Season with salt. Continue cooking for another 6 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender or reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from the heat.
Spread 2 tbsp (30mL) pesto over the pizza crust; top with ½ the amount of Mozzarella cheese, then the cooked greens making sure to create a nice pattern with the artichokes. Add the tomato halves and finish with the remaining Mozzarella cheese and 1 tbsp (15 mL) Parmesan cheese.

Bake pizza in a preheated 400 degree F (200 degree C) oven for 6-8 minutes or until the crust is browned and the cheese is bubbling. Turn the stove to broil and lightly brown the top of the cheese for 1 minute if necessary.

Variations:
Replace the pesto with pizza sauce; tomatoes with roasted red pepper strips, sausage rounds or cooked chicken breast strips or ham; other cheeses can replace the Mozzarella and Parmesan.

In the summer, bake the pizza on a BBQ heated to medium.
