White Pizza with Chicken, Artichoke Hearts, and Red Bell Pepper

I found this recipe earlier in the year and have made it several times. It's easy, it's quick, and works great with left-overs. I made chicken quesadillas Sunday night and had a lot of chicken and peppers left over. I also had artichoke hearts in the pantry (a staple for me) and I always have plain yogurt in the fridge these days too. It's light and I promise really yummy!

White Pizza with Chicken, Artichoke Hearts, and Red Bell Pepper


Cubed cooked chicken (feel free to use baked, roasted, or purchased rotisserie chicken)

Marinated artichoke hearts (I buy mine in a jar so I can refrigerate what I don't use)

Sautéed Red Bell Pepper (does not have to be red, can be green, yellow, etc.)

Mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup plain yogurt

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

2 minced garlic cloves (I used jarred minced garlic for convenience)

salt/pepper to taste

Pre-prepared pizza crust, tortilla, flatbread, or home made crust (I made a crust for this pizza but I have used tortillas in the past and flat bread. All work great! The tortilla makes a really thin crispy crust.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

First, prepare your crust if you are making one. I would be glad to show you a couple of different pizza crusts if you like. The only thing I would say with this pizza is don't use a raw pizza crust for this recipe, use something precooked.

Second, mix up your pizza sauce. Mix together your 1/3 cup yogurt, 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, garlic, salt, and pepper. You will have way more sauce than you need for one pizza, but it refrigerates well.

Third, prepare your pizza. Put a thin layer of sauce on the crust, don't just glob it on. A thin even layer works best. Then add your toppings, chicken, artichoke hearts, and bell pepper. I cut my artichokes into smaller pieces. Lastly sprinkle on mozzarella cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven until cheese is melted and bubbly. I like there to be just a little bit of brown to my cheese, but cook to your preference.

Enjoy! I love it with a little salad and a great big glass of unsweet tea. It's simple enough for every day but I think would do great for ballgames or a quick impromptu party. Plus it comes together fast! Easy peasy. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. Let me know if you make this! I cook a la' Justin Wilson, meaning I eyeball just about everything. (Unless I'm baking, then I'm a measuring fool!) So I never know if the recipes I give out turn out for people like they do for me.

Have a great day my lovelies!
