This Roasted Broccoli Barbecue Pizza sums up how I eat a lot of the time. It tastes amazing, because food needs to taste good. It has an unexpected element (or two unexpected elements in this case) because food shouldn’t be boring.
And lastly, it has a healthy twist that at least lands it in the health-ish category. Sometimes, healthy-ish is just fine by me.
This pizza has broccoli on it, so that certainly gives it some healthy merits, right?
I know, I know. Broccoli on pizza.
Congratulations, Happy Healthy Mama! You ruined pizza!
Well, you’ll just have to trust me here. Because broccoli far from ruins this pizza. I used the Homemade Bourbon Barbecue Sauce I shared with the other day for the sauce and its smoky flavor along with the crispy roasted broccoli was fabulous.
I use a combination of mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese and cooked the crust long enough to get it slightly crispy.
If I haven’t caught your attention yet, maybe this next part will. This is a 25 minute dinner! Woot woot! I’m talking 25 minutes total, with prep time. That’s a weeknight dinner win in my book.
I used a pre-made organic pizza crust from Costco, but if you’re feeling ambitious and want to make your own, I have an easy recipe right here that I really love. Homemade pizza crust is more of a weekend endeavor for me these days.
I’m sure you’re wondering if my lovely children will gobble down this pizza with broccoli on top. The answer is nope to the nope. But, they will, somewhat reluctantly, eat their broccoli on the side and they like plain cheese pizza, no sauce. No extra work to me (I’d make two pizzas–one for them and one for the adults) and they are basically eating the same dinner. Works for us. 🙂
I hope you guys love this one!Print
