You all know I have a serious love for pizza. I made it at home at least once a month and every single time I make it I try to do something just a little bit different. This pizza was born out of my new found love of puttanesca sauce AND my need to create a gourmet potluck item for my friends at Anolon. I personally think pizza is the best potluck item because all you have to do it pull it out of the oven, cut it up and let the feasting begin!

PLUS because this baby is packed full of flavor you’ll be getting all the praise!

Now, if you’re thinking “what in the heck is on this pizza?” I’m happy to help! It’s ground beef combined with capers, black olives, basil, tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Man oh man, it’s beyond delicious! I also sprinkled it with crushed red pepper because I’m always a fan of a little heat. Oh, and don’t skimp on that sprinkling on of basil at the end. Totally worth it!

You should also know that you don’t need a fancy pizza stone to make pizza at home. All you need is a nice non-stick baking sheet and some parchment paper or a Silpat liner. For this pizza, I used my new favorite baking sheet from Anolon. I love the silicone grips because it makes pulling it out of the oven a dream!

Now, get in the kitchen and make this pizza! It’s 100% worth it!

    Capers, olives, artichokes? You can count me IN!!! Plus, I agree that pizza is the perfect item for a potluck. Not many people do it though, but I’ll bet now they’ll start. Tasty recipe, Brandy!

    Mmmm capers and artichokes! We must be soul (food) mates haha! I do like some heat myself – sprinkling pizza with a little bit of crushed red pepper works for me 🙂
