Quarter the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Broil or grill the peppers, skin side up, until the skin blisters and blackens. Peel the skin and slice thinly.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions, garlic and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until the onions are soft.

Place the pizza bases on baking sheets and spread with the combined tomato paste, olive oil and basil. Top with half the cheese then the chicken, artichokes, mushroom mixture, bell peppers, tomatoes and olives; top with the remaining cheese. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with extra olive oil, if desired. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until well browned and hot.
