Secrets of a Great Vegetarian Pizza: Try This Recipe for an Artichoke Potato Mushroom Pizza

Test chef Brian Hernandez explores a great vegetarian pizza recipe that will trick all those veggie haters into thinking they are eating meat!

PMQ's Brian Hernandez made this pizza himself and has pronounced it simply delicious. "The artichokes are imparting that marinade to the taste buds," he says. "The beautiful thing about artichokes, they are a blank canvas, so to speak, [so you can] impart them with whatever flavor you desire. The mushrooms give off that great meaty flavor from the Worcestershire sauce. There is a lot of savory flavor coming from the olives as well. And the potatoes ... Who doesn't love rosemary and garlic roasted potatoes? And the sour cream puts all those savory flavors in check with its cool creaminess."


1 dough ball, to be stretched to 12-14"
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. minced garlic
3-4 Roma tomatoes
1 1/3 c. potatoes roasted in olive oil, rosemary and minced garlic to taste
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 c. marinated artichoke hearts
1 c. portabello or brown mushrooms, thinly sliced, drenched in Worcestershire sauce (or steak sauce)
1/4 c. pitted ripe or Greek olives, diced
1 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
Drizzle of sour cream


Start roasting your potatoes in a mix of rosemary, minced garlic and olive oil. Roast until they are golden-brown and very firm, but not crispy. You want to finish the bake of the potatoes on the pizza in the oven.

Once your potatoes are roasted perfectly, spread the oil mix over your slapped-out crust. Arrange your Roma tomatoes, and spread your potatoes evenly over the whole pie. Spread grated Parmesan cheese over the potatoes, then top with marinated artichokes, mushrooms and olives. Final step is to top it with mozzarella/ Bake at 450° for about 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden-brown and the cheese fully melted.
