Green Pizza

I really wanted to make the Green Goddess pizza from Vegan with a Vengeance but my boyfriend balked at a pizza with no cheese and tofu. Apparently he thinks both those things are a crime against pizza. He would have tried it but he had a mental block against liking it.

I had heard this recipe from Eating Well is just as good but I will do the vegan pizza another time even though he insists he'll prefer this one. We shall see.....I think this pizza was a good "training" pizza to prepare him.

I use Eating Well's Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe for all my pizzas because it's so easy and never fails me. It also refrigerates well if you want to make it ahead of time.

The toppings were easy. Chop broccoli, steam, add chopped arugula and wilt. I did add some hot pepper flakes to the pesto because I like them. I'll definitely make this again as it's a great way to get your veggies and with the prepared crust it's an easy weeknight meal. Easier if you use a store bought crust or flatbread.

I have mental blocks about some foods, so I understand your bf :) That pizza looks super tasty - especially the cheese and broccoli!
