Ingredients
  

  • 1 store bought pizza crust (*I do NOT recommend a super thin crust)
  • 4 oz basil pesto
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 oz shredded parmesan cheese (or parmesan & romano blend)
  • 1 medium head of broccoli
  • 4 handfuls arugula (enough to cover the pizza to your liking)
  • optional: pizza seasoning or dried oregano for sprinkling on top
  • optional: pizza sauce for dipping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to temperature noted on your pizza crust
  • Wash & cut broccoli florets into small pieces, place in a microwave safe bowl covered with saran wrap, & steam in the microwave (~3mins)
  • While broccoli is cooking, place crust on a pizza pan & spread pesto across the top leaving a 1/2″ ring around the edge (your “crust”)
  • Sprinkle half of your mozzarella over the pesto
  • Add arugula over the mozzarella
  • Once broccoli is cooked, drain & spread over the arugula*
  • Top with mozzarella & parmesan. If adding additional seasoning, sprinkle across the top
  • Cook per crust package directions & enjoy!

Notes

*At instruction step 6, we usually cut the broccoli into even smaller pieces after steaming using a kitchen shears before placing on our pizza
