A great way to make a quick homemade pizza is to use fresh pizza dough from your local market.  You can  marinate artichoke hearts for three days, or you can

use olive oil flavored with herbs on the pizza dough, then add fresh chopped rosemary and a few dollops of fresh ricotta. Preparing this pizza in the evening is very simple and doable for even the busiest home cook. The longest part  is grating the fontina, which takes all of 2 minutes. Then  just layer on the ingredients, pop it in the oven and go about rounding up the troops for dinner.
