I have been looking forward to the week when our CSA, The Good Food Collective, would include fresh beets and broccoli in our weekly share because I have been super excited to recreate on of my favorite pizzas from last summer.
For this pizza I decided to replace mozzarella cheese with parmesan cheese and forgo spinach. I started by spreading on homemade pizza sauce, then I sprinkled on fresh parmesan cheese. I steamed the broccoli, chopped it, then tossed in on the pizza. The key to this pizza is the preparation of the beets – one of my favorite summertime pizza ingredients. Here’s how I like to prepare them. First, roast the whole beets a toaster oven for about 30 minutes. Next, cut the beets into bite sized pieces. Finally, toss them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper before putting them on the pizza.
Let the pizza bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese melted. Broccoli, beets and parmesan pizza is a summer delight!
