Caramelized Broccoli and Red Onion Pizza

Dave ran a 1/2 marathon yesterday and was put in charge of deciding what we would eat for dinner. He asked for pizza and after going through a few recipes he decided that he would really like to have broccoli on his pizza. Although broccoli isn't a typical pizza topping, we both thought this recipe turned out pretty good.

This was incredibly easy to make since I made some tweaks to the recipe to avoid making my own dough and sauce. If you're feeling adventurous you can make your own crust or sauce using your favorite recipe.

Recipe adapted from Serious Eats.

-1 small head broccoli, cut into 1/2-inch florets
-1/1 small red onion, thinly sliced
-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
-Extra-virgin olive oil
-Kosher salt
-4 tablespoons pizza sauce
-1 prepared pizza crust
-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Stretch the pizza crust onto the pan you'd like to use (or onto your pizza stone, we love ours) and preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Bake the crust for about five minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, red onion, red pepper flakes, and about one tablespoon of olive oil.

After five minutes, remove the pizza crust from the oven. Spread the sauce over the crust, top with the cheese, and then evenly spread the broccoli mixture over top of the cheese. Bake for about 10 more minutes.

Slice and enjoy.
