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.

Recipe Ingredients for Green Pizza

1 pound pizza dough,
2 cups chopped broccoli florets
1/4 cup water
5 ounces arugula ,any tough stems removed, chopped (about 6 cups)
1 pinch of salt
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup pesto
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Green Pizza

  1. Position oven rack in the lowest position; preheat to 450F. 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.
