roasted broccoli and garlic white pizza

May 13, 2019

I LOVE this savory garlicky pizza!

Ingredients:
– 1 pizza crust
– 1 batch of white sauce from scratch or alfredo from a jar
– roasted broccoli and garlic
– shredded cheese
– ricotta

Make a batch of your favorite pizza crust. I recommend Kenji’s New York style pizza crust. It’s great on a super thin-crust, too. Of course, you could also use a pre-made crust from the store!

Preheat oven to 500F, or whatever your oven’s highest setting is.

Roast your favorite veggies. I love whole roasted cloves of garlic and broccoli for this pizza. You can add anything from roasted sliced sweet potatoes to caramelized onions! I also think this would be incredible topped with “garlic chips” (cloves of garlic sliced thin and roasted on super high heat til crispy). I like to toss everything in olive oil, and roast everything on a SUPER high heat for this pizza (think 425). That leaves the florets crispy like broccoli chips, while the bits of stem stay a little crunchy. Very texturally interesting and amazing on a pizza. If you want it even healthier, though, chisel and fork just barely cooks the broccoli in a skillet, so it retains its raw crunch.

Start a white sauce. You can make a simple white sauce in five minutes flat. You can also use alfredo from a jar. Season to taste with whatever you like. I like garlic powder, cayenne, a pinch of oregano, and tons of black pepper with this pizza.

Build your pizza! Get the crust ready, then top with sauce. Shred a bunch of cheese over that. I like brick mozzarella, but any melty cheese will work. You can even mix in a little sharp cheddar for that “broccoli-cheddar soup” taste!

Top with glops of ricotta. (That’s fun to say out loud.) If you want to go super-fancy, top with spinach and basil leaves, fresh grated parmesan, maybe even a sliced cherry tomato or two or some crumbled bacon. This pizza really doesn’t need meat, though!

Bake at your oven’s highest heat until the cheese starts to brown in spots.

My favorite homemade pizzas on Earth are:
1. a caramelized onion and lemon cream sauce pizza,
2. a sausage, bleu cheese, and caramelized onion pizza,
3. THIS broccoli and ricotta pizza!

It’s a real crowd-pleaser.
