      1/2  teaspoon      salt -- divided
    4      ounces        ricotta cheese
    2      ounces        Asiago cheese -- coarsely grated
                         divided use
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh basil
                         or half that amount dried
      1/4  teaspoon      freshly ground black pepper
    1      pound         pizza dough -- thawed if frozen

    5      ounces        mozzarella cheese -- cut in small cubes

 In a stainless-steel strainer, combine the chopped tomatoes and 1/4

 Roll out or stretch pizza dough to fit a 12-inch round pizza pan.  Drizzle
 1 teaspoon basil oil over the dough and spread evenly with the ricotta
 mixture.  Scatter 1/2 the tomatoes and 1/2 the mozzarella over the ricotta.  
 
 Arrange the artichoke hearts on the pizza and scatter with the remaining
 tomatoes and mozzarella.  Drizzle with the remaining teaspoon basil olive oil.
 
 Bake pizza 15 minutes.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Asiago and return
 to oven for 5-10 minutes until crust is golden brown and cheeses are
 melted.  [approx per slice: 260 cals, 11g fat]
