This weekend included some pretty great things. Pizza (obviously).
Lots of time with this guy.
And this girl (even if she was asleep for a lot of it).
Yogurt! We don’t have a decent yogurt place in our town, which is fantastic and terrible at the same time.
Breakfast…made by my fabulous husband.
Wine and chocolate. Thank you, Trader Joe’s, for always having exceptionally good values on wine and chocolate to go with it.
This pizza is not particularly ground-breaking, but it’s a nice way to eat broccoli and have some not-typical-pizza-flavors. Be pretty liberal with the garlic and olive oil because it really helps out the flavor and texture under the cheese!
dough for 2 10″ pizzas
3-4 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 medium head broccoli, cut in florets
1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 red onion, cut into thin rings
Preheat oven to 500 F (with a pizza stone if you have one)
Steam the broccoli until crisp-tender (it should look bright green and still have a little bit of crunch).
Stretch out your dough and brush with 1 or 2 tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle evenly with minced garlic.
Top the oil-brushed crust with broccoli and a few red onion rings, then sprinkle with cheese.
Slide onto the pizza stone and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly, approximately 10 minutes.
