Bertucci's Corporation, a casual-dining chain, owns a collection of full-service Italian restaurants that operate under the name "Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizzeria." During the early years of the 21st century there were roughly 80 Bertucci's restaurants scattered throughout the northeastern United States, each of which featured wood-fired brick ovens, which cook hotter than conventional pizza ovens, and served Tuscan-styled food, including gourmet pizzas, salads, soups, seafood, and pasta dishes. Founded in suburban Boston by Joseph Crugnale, Bertucci's expanded quickly during the 1980s and 1990s, growing from a single restaurant in 1981 to a sprawling restaurant chain by the mid-1990s. N.E. Restaurant Co. Inc., Bertucci's owner since 1998, adopted the Bertucci's name in 2001.

ROASTED ARTICHOKE FONDUTA
Artichoke hearts blended in a mozzarella, asiago and 
romano cheese spread, then baked and served with crispy flatbread.


1 (14 oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine artichoke hearts, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, white pepper. Mix well, and spoon mixture into a 1 quart baking dish. Top with remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
