white garlic broccoli pizza

Oh man, I love a garlic and olive oil pizza! Well, this time I decided to add some broccoli. I like to use an inexpensive pizza crust mix, Wal Mart brand, 49 cents a packet.

It's quick and easy! Follow the directions on the back of the packet to make the crust. Basically, you par bake the crust first. Don't burn it like I did!! I heard the timer go off and then I went on to do something else...and forgot about it!!

So, anyhow, after the crust par bakes, in my case...completely bakes..overbakes..brush the crust with extra virgin olive oil. Smear crust with a very thin layer of ricotta cheese.

Season ricotta with salt and pepper and a tiny bit of oregano. Next add minced garlic. I cooked my garlic in a little olive oil first to soften. Then sprinkle with chopped cooked broccoli bits.

Next, cut thin slices of fresh mozzarella and place all over pizza.

Finally, brush the mozzarella slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Bake pizza for about 10 minutes under cheese is bubbling and slightly browned.

Oh my gosh! This pizza was sooooo good! If you like a white pizza, give it a try! Next time I'm going to add slivers of sun dried tomatoes! Mmmmm!
