Sicilian-Style Pizza with Focaccia

This is the most basic way to make a Sicilian-style pizza, but we recommend adding any sort of toppings you find tasty. Also, this recipe is even better when served with salad or fresh vegetables!

Serves 8

  • 2 Round (8-10 inch diameter) pieces of focaccia bread
  • 1 cup of tomato pizza sauce (We recommend garlic or onion flavored)
  • 2 Tbsp. dried basil or oregano
  • 3/4 lb. canned artichoke hearts (Make sure to drain, rinse, and chop)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2-3/4 cup of shredded provolone cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped (chop more depending on your taste)


    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
    2. Put the bread on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil over it
    3. Mix the chopped garlic with the olive oil and brush over the focaccia bread.
    4. Mix the pizza sauce and the oregano or basil together and then spread evenly over the focaccia.
    5. Add 3/4 of the cheese
    6. Add the chopped artichokes
    7. Add the rest of the cheese
    8. Bake the pizzas for 10-15 minutes until cheese well melted
