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.

"I love this Green Pizza, especially with homemade thin whole wheat pizza crust! I make the dough in my food processor the night before. I add other green veggies, like peas, spinach, and artichokes and I like to add goat cheese or feta...

Very good alternative to a tomato sauce pizza

I've made this several times, first with the arugula, second with a mixture of arugula and chopped fresh baby spinach, and lastly, baby spinach and baby kale along with some black olives, mushrooms and sliced tomatoes and the broccoli . The last one was the best. Arugula tends to taste bitter to me, so the combo of the spinach and kale worked well. I also used a store bought crust (the fresh kind) and that saves time in preparation. I use a lot of mozzarella cheese, so the baking time is extended to 20 to 25 minutes. I should have taken a picture, maybe next time.

healthy, yummy, easy to make
Absolutely Delicious!!

I made a few changes but it was AWESOME!
I used spinach/kale mix instead of arugula. I added the spinach/kale mix after I drained the crisp-tender broccoli instead of wilting it. It wilted enough when mixed with hot broccoli. Everything else was per the recipe. Great for weeknights or company.

Pretty Good!!

The first time I made this, I followed the recipe exactly. I thought it very good. I tried it a 2nd time but used whole what flat break instead of pizza dough. I thought it was much better that way,

Easy week night dish!

I used Whole Foods whole wheat pizza dough, broccoli, spinach, and artichoke hearts for this though I could see how arugula would work. Without the artichoke hearts I don't know if I'd care for this so much. I also added low-fat ricotta cheese and small clumps of goat cheese as I think they they compliment the other agreements much more than mozzarella. I definitely added more cheese than the recipe suggested, but it was delicious so I can't complain!

Versatile, easily made your own
Delicious Green Pizza

This pizza was heavenly, and I even burnt the crust! The pesto was the perfect base (not a big tomato sauce fan)...the broccoli cooked perfectly! Thought 6 cups of arugula was a little much so I scaled back...definitely won't do that again! That stuff shrinks to nothing once it's wilted! Used an arugula/spinach mix. Also mixed mozzarella and cheddar cheese because I'm a huge cheese fan. Also added tomatoes, so good. Even with the burnt crust, my boyfriend and I just scraped the top part off with out teeth! So delicious, definitely doing again.

Easy to prep & make, cheap
