white garlic broccoli pizza

Oh man, I love a garlic and olive oil pizza! Well, this time I decided to add some broccoli. I like to use an inexpensive pizza crust mix, Wal Mart brand, 49 cents a packet.

It's quick and easy! Follow the directions on the back of the packet to make the crust. Basically, you par bake the crust first. Don't burn it like I did!! I heard the timer go off and then I went on to do something else...and forgot about it!!

So, anyhow, after the crust par bakes, in my case...completely bakes..overbakes..brush the crust with extra virgin olive oil. Smear crust with a very thin layer of ricotta cheese.

Season ricotta with salt and pepper and a tiny bit of oregano. Next add minced garlic. I cooked my garlic in a little olive oil first to soften. Then sprinkle with chopped cooked broccoli bits.

Next, cut thin slices of fresh mozzarella and place all over pizza.

Finally, brush the mozzarella slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Bake pizza for about 10 minutes under cheese is bubbling and slightly browned.

Oh my gosh! This pizza was sooooo good! If you like a white pizza, give it a try! Next time I'm going to add slivers of sun dried tomatoes! Mmmmm!


  1. OMG! That looks so good! I'll be right over. Ha ha. Wish I was there to try that out. I guess I need to try that out. Maybe this weekend.

  2. Mmmmmmm. This looks amazing. I am working on my grocery list now & adding all the ingredients. :)

  3. Peggy, thanks for stopping by...and I do hope you give the pizza a try this weekend!...even if you decide to change up the toppings, give the pizza crust mix a very good and very quick. I use the crust for just regular ole pizza as well and my kids and husband love it. I think the key is the par baked crust. It makes the crust so much better! Let me know!

  4. Martha Complex, I'm so glad you are going to try this pizza...I don't think you will be sorry! Yum!

  5. Bonnie I had to stop the drool from dripping onto my desk. You're killing me. :)

  6. That looks really good. We have only tasted fresh mozza within the last year..really nice variation from regular. We grill pizza a lot in the summer. .wondering if you have tried that?? Enjoy!

  7. Thank you for the looks so yummy! We will definately be trying this soon.

  8. Oh yum! We just had homemade pizza over the weekend, though I haven't tried a white pizza yet. Definitely want to try this one.
