Green Pizza

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound  prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup water, or chicken or vegetable stock
  • 5 ounces kale ,any tough stems removed, chopped (about 6 cups)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup  prepared pesto (recipe in previous weeks and online at www.justfarmed.com)
  • 1 cup  shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

DIRECTIONS

Position oven rack in the lowest position; preheat to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

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.

Meanwhile, cook broccoli and water (or chicken/vegetable stock) in a large skillet over medium heat, covered, until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in kale and cook, stirring, until wilted and not as tough. Season with salt and pepper.

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.
