Lift the bread pan out of the machine and fit the blade. Put the dough ingredients in the pan, following the order specified in the manual.
Fit the pan into the machine and close the lid. Set to the dough programme.
Drain the artichokes, reserving 2 tablespoons of the oil, and slice them into smaller pieces. Heat the reserved oil in a frying pan and fry the pancetta until it just starts to colour.
At the end of the programme turn the dough out on to a floured surface and roll it out to a circle 30 cm (12 inches) across. Transfer to a large, greased baking sheet and spread to 1 cm (½ inch) of the edges with the pesto. Scatter with the artichokes, then the pancetta, pine nuts and plenty of black pepper.
Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for about 15 minutes until the crust is pale golden. Shave plenty of cheese over the top to serve.
