Well, today was the epic day I decided to climb out of my "chicken with a side of broccoli" box and get creative. Sure, I've made cauliflower pizza crusts and coconut flour deep dish pizza crusts but never played around with the green stuff. Okay, so maybe I have. But I promise I didn't inhale. I must say that even though it was time consuming (read: impatiently checking the oven and salivating while waiting for the crust to get crisp) it actually is quite simple. And cheap. Did I mention I like simple and cheap?
It really was simple and if my McDonalds lovin husband approved, then that definitely gives me some vegetable cred. Ya know, I did get retweeted by Whole Foods the other day. That being said, I think I've officially won the most popular food blogger award. Look for my picture at your nearest Whole Foods:)
Well, I've kept you crazy broccoli lovers in suspense long enough; On to the directions! And don't worry all you fellow ADD'ers , I promise to keep it short.
Cook 3 cups of broccoli florets
Mash the broccoli with potato masher (it wont get mad that you are cheating on it with broccoli)
Mix one egg and stir really well
Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
Form your "mean green" into the shape of a personal pan pizza (okay so broccoli isn't mean and this ain't no pizza hut)
Put in the oven at 400 degrees for as long as it takes to get crispy. My oven took about 25 minutes
While cooking, heat your marinara (I use Munir organic) Since I mentioned them, can I get free samples for life?
Chop up your toppings
Remove pizza crust and transfer to new sheet of parchment paper
Add them to pizza (if you're blonde like me, this may or may not have been obvious)
Take pizza crust out and add sauce and toppings
Return to oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes
Ok so I didn't keep it short. You can't hate me. I just shared genius with you. Now go get your broccoli on!
