Broccoli and Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

Broccoli and Cauliflower Pizza

The winter  solstice is next week so this broccoli and cauliflower pizza recipe will be my last fall pizza of the season. I was motivated to try cauliflower on a pizza because it is in season and I have yet to include it as a topping on a pizza.

I roasted cauliflower and broccoli florets in some of my favorite garlic and herb basting oil. After pre-baking the dough I spread on my homemade sauce, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Then, to give it a kick, I sprinkled on crushed red pepper.

The roasted cauliflower and broccoli tasted wonderful with the heat from the crushed red pepper. And the cheeses and pizza sauce complimented these flavors well. This broccoli and cauliflower pizza tasted great and was an excellent way to wrap a season of fall pizza recipes.

Thanksgiving Pizza Recipe

Thanksgiving Pizza

The menu for the day after Thanksgiving usually includes a turkey sandwich for lunch and turkey casserole or turkey soup for dinner. But this year I decided to forgo the traditional recipes and turn the leftovers from one of my favorite meals of the year into a pizza.

Our Thanksgiving day leftovers included mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, roasted vegetables, and turkey.  I pre-baked my dough and then spread on a layer of mashed potatoes. Then I added the stuffing, corn, and mixed vegetables. Next, I cut the turkey into small pieces and arranged it on top. I put the pizza back in the oven for 10 minutes, removed it, and then drizzled on some warm gravy.

Special credit goes to my mother-in-law who cooked this wonderful Thanksgiving meal and gave me the leftovers. My day after Thanksgiving pizza was like having Thanksgiving dinner all over again. The turkey remained moist, the flavors from  the apple in the stuffing popped, and the veggies were just right. I hope my Thanksigiving pizza recipe becomes an annual tradition.
