Ingredients

  • 2 flatbreads, about 9 to 10 inches in diameter, preferably round, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • cups very small fresh broccoli florets, about ½ inch big
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (about 1½ teaspoons total)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons ricotta cheese, whole milk or part skim
  • 4 tablespoons freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • cups shredded mozzarella cheese, whole milk or part skim

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (use a baking sheet that will fit both of the flatbreads without them overlapping).
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the broccoli and onions, stirring frequently, until they begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for another minute, stirring constantly (turn down the heat, if needed, so that the broccoli doesn't burn).
  • Turn off the heat, taste the mixture, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place the flatbreads on the baking sheet. On each flatbread, spread 2 tablespoons of the ricotta cheese, leaving about a ½-inch border around the edges.
  • Top each flatbread with 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese, half of the broccoli mixture, and 2 more tablespoons of mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the middle of the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the flatbread is golden brown and crisp around the edges.
  • Cut each pizza into 4 slices; serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • I think fresh broccoli is best for this pizza, but you could use frozen broccoli. Thaw it first and then make sure to drain it and pat it dry so that your topping won't be wet, and then proceed with the recipe.
  • This recipe makes two 9-to-10-inch pizzas, each cut into 4 slices, which will serve at least 2 people and up to 4 depending on appetites and any appetizers and side dishes you might be serving.
