Artichoke Pizza with Fig and Scamorza Cheese

This artichoke pizza combines the earthy taste of artichokes with gooey strong cheese and the sweetness of tomatoes.

Note: If you cannot find scamorza cheese you can replace with provola, provolone or a firm mozzarella. You can also try with a matured cheddar, but the gooeyness is not the same.
