Recipe: Pizza with Broccoli, Red Onion and Veggie Italian Sausage

30 Jan

There’s no big recipe for this pizza.  Pizza’s one of those things that great no matter what you put on it.  Here’s what I made:


  • 1 head of broccoli, cut up into small florets and blanched for about a minute
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 veggie Italian sausage, thinly sliced and browned
  • 1/2 jar Trader Joe’s pizza sauce
  • 1 bag of Trader Joe’s pizza crust
  • 1 bag of Trader Joe’s quatro fromaggio shredded cheese

Stretch out the dough, spread a thin layer of sauce, scatter the cheese and toppings on the pizza and top with lots of red pepper flakes.  Bake according to directions.  We enjoyed this with a simple salad with a garlicky balsamic vinaigrette (make a classic French style vinaigrette and grate a clove of garlic into the mix with a microplane).
