The name quattro stagioni, or “four seasons,” is given to a pizza divided into four sections with four different toppings, one for each season. Our version of this Italian favourite uses artichokes for spring, olives for summer, mushrooms for fall, and prosciutto for winter, though we encourage you to play with different toppings! One fun dinner game is to take note of everybody's favourite sections when serving this festive pizza. Does their topping of choice match their favorite time of year? Serve this pizza piping hot with a lightly dressed green salad on the side.

Ingredients

Whole wheat pizza dough

10 oz, at room temperature

Store-bought pizza sauce

¾ cup(s)

Shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

4 oz, about 1 cup

Frozen artichokes

5 oz, thawed, squeezed dry, and quartered

Cremini mushroom(s)

1 cup(s), sliced

Olive(s)

8 large, pitted and sliced

Prosciutto

2 oz, thinly sliced, cut into strips

Black pepper

¼ tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Place oven rack in lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 500°F.
  2. Stretch or roll dough out to 12-inch round; if dough begins to pull back, cover it with kitchen towel, let it rest 10 minutes, and then continue rolling. Transfer dough to baking sheet, pressing dough back into shape as needed. Leaving 1-inch border around edges, spread sauce evenly over crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Top evenly with artichokes, mushrooms, olives, and prosciutto. Spray pizza lightly with nonstick spray and sprinkle with pepper.
  3. Bake until crust is golden and cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Cut pizza into 6 wedges.
  4. Serving size: 1 wedge
