Skill Level


  • 2 Bunches BROCCOLINI® baby broccoli, divided
  • ½ cup walnuts, toasted
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 package prepared pizza dough
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • ½ red onion, very thinly sliced

The Method

  1. Preheat oven to 425℉.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add BROCCOLINI® baby broccoli and cook until bright green and crisp tender, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water and cool completely. Drain well and pat broccolini dry.
  3. To a food processor add half the broccolini, walnuts, Parmesan, garlic, lemon juice, and salt. Process until BROCCOLINI® baby broccoli is chopped into fine pieces and everything is combined. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in oil and process until smooth.
  4. Lightly oil a large skillet. Stretch or roll pizza dough to cover bottom of skillet and come halfway up the sides. Top with pesto, mozzarella, onion, and remaining BROCCOLINI baby broccoli spears.
  5. Bake 20-30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cheese is melted.
  6. Preheat broiler to high. Place pizza under broiler about 1 minute to brown the top.
