Change Quantities:
  1. Put the flour, yeast and sugar into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Stir in the tepid water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the salt.
  3. Add a tablespoon of oil from the artichokes and mix well.
  4. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  5. Knead the dough in its bowl for 100 presses.
  6. Invert a large bowl over the dough bowl and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  7. Roughly chop the artichokes, cut the cheese into cubes and reserve these for later.
  8. Rub some oil around the inside of a large baking tray or insert a baking liner.
  9. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  10. Sprinkle flour on the work surface, put the dough in the middle and lightly dust it with flour.
  11. Shape the dough into a 50cm/20” cylinder and brush the ends with water.
  12. Transfer the dough onto the prepared tray pressing the ends together to form a circle.
  13. Flatten the dough so the circle is at least 10cm/4” wide all round.
  14. Spread the pesto over the dough.
  15. Arrange the artichokes and cheese cubes in the middle of the pesto.
  16. Season with salt and pepper and scatter the pine nuts over the top.
  17. Draw up the edges of the dough to roughly enclose the filling, pinching the dough together between the artichokes.
  18. Cover the dough with a large upturned bowl and leave it to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  19. Pre-heat the oven.
  20. Remove the bowl and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown and oozing.
  21. Serve warm or cold.
