Green Pizza

Why not use cooler-weather vegetables like broccoli
and arugula as an unconventional pizza topping?
The arugula adds a slightly bitter, peppery taste–for
a milder flavor, use spinach instead. Serve with
wedges of fresh tomato tossed with vinegar, olive
oil, basil and freshly ground pepper.

  1. Position oven rack in the lowest position; preheat to 450 °F. Coat a large
    baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking
    sheet. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on
    the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook broccoli and water in a large skillet over medium heat,
    covered, until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in arugula and
    cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread pesto evenly over the crust, top with the broccoli mixture and
    sprinkle with cheese. Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 8
    to 10 minutes.
