Rustic Spinach, Artichokes and Basil Pesto Pizza
Today, I am sharing with you rustic style pizza with homemade basil pesto, meaty artichokes and my all-time favorite spinach. Artichokes and spinach are two ingredients which I will happily eat on any pizza any day!! I adore these two ingredients.

Homemade pizza is like a blank canvas, you can paint it with any yummy flavor combinations, fresh vegetables and what not!! When I don't have time to make pizza dough at home, I often buy pizza base form local bakery/store. This vegetarian pizza with basil pesto, artichokes and spinach comes together very fast, is economical and great for game nights. Drizzle a little olive oil on top and you will have the authentic rustic Italian pizza at home.

I have used canned artichoke for this pizza, if you like you can also use frozen artichokes. Just wash frozen artichokes under hot water for 1 minutes before using and do squeeze out any extra water.

Feel free to add more toppings to this yumm pizza. Chicken strips, red onions, roasted peppers, zucchini will also be great for a tasty variation.
