Preheat oven to 400ºF. Unroll both packages of dough side by side over bottom of Large Bar Pan, trimming excess dough even with long sides of pan with Utility Knife. Place oil in (1-cup) Prep Bowl; brush over dough using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush. Bake 16-18 minutes or until golden brown; remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. Sprinkle cheese over hot pizza crust.
Drain artichoke marinade into Classic Batter Bowl. Add Italian seasoning and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; whisk using Stainless Whisk. Coarsely chop artichokes and olives using Food Chopper; add to batter bowl. Cut stem from squash; cut squash crosswise into quarters. Slice using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped blade; cut slices in half. Slice tomatoes in half lengthwise using Utility Knife; scrape out seeds and dice. Add artichokes, olives, squash and tomatoes to batter bowl; mix well using Small Mix 'N Scraper®.
Spoon vegetables over pizza, draining off as much marinade as possible. Sprinkle with parsley and pine nuts, if desired. Cut pizza into squares with Pizza Cutter; serve using Mini-Serving Spatula.
