White Broccoli Pizza

white broccoli pizza recipeWhenever I go back to my hometown in New Jersey, I have to have a slice of broccoli pizza from Primo Pizza as soon as I get there. I dream about it, and it makes the long drive back to NJ tolerable because I know that I will soon have my favorite pizza on Earth. I love the thin crust, garlicky ricotta cheese, and the thick layer of mozzarella cheese that is melted over all of it. Broccoli might seem like a strange pizza topping, but it works perfectly with the creamy cheese and adds a little crunch. Primo’s makes a tomato and broccoli version and a spinach one, all good, but straight broccoli is my favorite.

I made my pizza on the grill, but you could easily just bake this in the oven. I love how the crust gets brown and the underside super crispy on the grill. I made a red sauce version for the kids and they loved this crust for their pizza. Perfect for a make-your-own-pizza party. It was a lot easier to grab some crusts out of the bag, and a lot less messy than rolling out the dough. I have been a long fan of Flatout and use them for sandwiches all the time, but it never really occurred to me to use them for pizza. I will from now on. I loved how this turned out.

  • I love broccoli pizza – we were able to get it in upstate NY when we lived there… but in the midwest no one has heard of it! This looks yummy!

  • I noticed the grill you were using actually has a removable round designed for a pizza stone. Is there a reason you didn’t make an actual pizza dough and use the stone? I mean, you would end up with a significantly better pizza and recipe.

    • Yes, because it was a quick weeknight dinner and the post was sponsored by Flatout.
