1 recipe Quick Yeast Dough for Pizza
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup skinned and peeled plum tomatoes
1 package frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted and cut into thin slices
1/2 cup shredded ricotta salata cheese
1/2 cup grated pecorino cheese
Salt to taste
Grinding black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan; add the onion and sugar and cook until the onion softens. Add the tomatoes and nutmeg and simmer for 10 minutes. Cool slightly.
Roll the dough out to fit a 13 × 18-inch rimmed baking sheet. Brush the sheet with olive oil and spread the dough in the pan.
Top with the tomato sauce. Arrange the artichoke pieces on top of the sauce. Sprinkle on the ricotta salata and pecorino cheese. Add salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil over the top.
Bake about 25 minutes. The edges and bottom should be golden brown and crisp. Cut into squares.
