Amazing Artichoke Pie

This artichoke pie is versatile enough to be a snack or complete meal, but consider serving a thin wedge as an appetizer before a meat entrée. We are using canned artichoke hearts but if you prefer to use cooked fresh artichoke you can do that. We are also using parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, eggs, breadcrumbs, garlic, and a piecrust. Enjoy this warm from the oven or cold. It goes to show how tasty an Italian vegetarian appetizer can be, and everyone will enjoy the amazing flavors.

This does not take long to prepare but it does need about 45 minutes to bake. You can tell when it is done because the top will be golden brown and the aroma will be incredible. Your whole kitchen is going to smell amazing when you make this. As you can see, all the ingredients are typically Italian, so of course the end flavor will be Italian as well. If you want to tweak the recipe you can add spinach, ham or fresh sliced tomatoes, or you might want to use marinated artichokes instead of plain ones for a slightly richer flavor in the finished pie.

This is a very simple pie and you need very few ingredients. Some people prefer to make their own piecrust but it is easier just to buy a readymade 9-inch pie crust and use that. If you want to make this a low-carb recipe just omit the piecrust altogether and use a lightly oiled baking dish instead, so you end up with a crustless pie. If you do not want to serve this as an appetizer, consider a wedge of the pie with some salad for lunch. This serves 8 as an appetizer or perhaps 4 as an entrée with a side dish.
