Cast-Iron Broccoli and Ricotta Pizza

Cast-Iron Broccoli and Ricotta Pizza
In This Article

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 2 hours

Cooking homemade pizza on the stove in a cast-iron pan and then finishing it in a very hot oven yields a perfectly crispy crust in very little time. The crust is a super-quick food processor dough that requires little work and we top this pie with creamy ricotta and part-skim mozzarella, plus blanched broccoli and juicy roasted peppers. Feel free to substitute your own favorite vegetables — torn kale leaves, sautéed mushrooms and roasted cauliflower are all delicious on this “pizza bianca.”

RD tip: This meal is great if you want the satisfaction of pizza without abandoning your health journey. You get a serving of vegetables plus a good dose of fiber and keep a moderate fat intake by using part-skim cheese.
