Creamy Broccoli Pizza

45 MIN
50 MIN
4 medium pizzas
Chock full of veggies, this riff on one of Ricardo’s favourite pies is a real slice of freshness. We took our classic pizza dough and slathered on a base of broccoli purée, cheese (Parmesan and ricotta), cream, garlic and scallions (for an ultra-green spin on traditional red sauce), then loaded it with broccoli florets, asparagus (all organic options), melty mozzarella and smoky, sliced capicollo. Topped with a cloud of creamy burrata and a scattering of baby kale, just call it the new all-dressed.


Broccoli Cream



Broccoli Cream

  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the broccoli until tender, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove the broccoli (keep the pot of water). In a food processor, purée with the remaining ingredients until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


  1. Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. In the same pot of salted boiling water, cook the broccoli until tender, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove the broccoli and run under cold water. Cook the asparagus in the same water until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and run under cold water.
  3. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out one piece of dough into an 11-inch (28 cm) disc. Place on a square of parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  4. Cover each pizza with about 3/4 cup (180 ml) of the broccoli cream. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Divide the cooked vegetables and capicollo among the pizzas.
  5. Place 1 pizza at a time (with the parchment paper) on the pizza stone. Cook for 10 minutes or until the dough is cooked through and nicely golden. Immediately garnish with the burratas and kale.
