Ingredients

  • Pizza dough homemade or storebought
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • pinch of red chili flakes optional
  • 3 Campari tomatoes we get our tomatoes from Costco, cut into thin slices
  • 1 Baby Broccoli head cut into florets
  • 3-4 small sweet peppers cut into slices
  • ½ cup fresh mozzarella cheese cut into cubes (4 ounces)
  • 4 –6 pieces of fresh basil chopped

Instructions

  • Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 550 degrees F or as high as it can get. You want your oven as hot as possible. 
  • Prepare pizza dough.  If your dough was in the fridge, bring the dough to room temperature about 30 minutes before rolling it out. If your dough is ready, flour the surface and flour a rolling pin to roll the dough from the center to the edges until the circle is about half an inch thick.  Once fully rolled out, place parchment paper on your pizza peel, gently pick up the dough, and lay it on top. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, and red chili flakes.
  • Using a silicone pastry brush, gently add the garlic olive oil mixture on top of the pizza dough.
  • Assemble the pizza by adding the sliced tomatoes, baby broccoli, sweet peppers, and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly on top. 
  • Gently slide pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for about 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.  If needed, turn on the broiler on high to make the cheese extra brown on top. Be careful not to burn the pizza, as this process goes quickly. 
  • Remove pizza from the oven and add fresh chopped basil on top.
  • Cut into slices and serve immediately. 

Notes

  • Optional veggies to add: spinach (add after baking) or yellow squash cut into thin pieces (add before baking)
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat pizza on a skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Cover for about 2 minutes, and you have delicious pizza leftovers! The pizza crust becomes crunchy!
