Home-made `Green' Pizza Recipe

Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


  • 1 pound already-made whole-wheat pizza dough
  • 2 cups of chopped broccoli
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 cups of chopped arugula
  • 1/2 cup already-made pesto
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pinch of pepper & salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F and coat a large baking sheet or pizza tray with a bit of oil.
  2. Sprinkle a bit of flour on your counter top and roll your dough out to a nice shape. Make sure it will fit your baking sheet. Once done, transfer to the sheet and slightly bake it for about 8 to 10 minutes. The dough should be light brown at the bottom.
  3. While you’re waiting for your dough to cook, pour your broccoli and water in a large skillet and place over medium heat. Cover the pan and wait for about 3 minutes or until your vegetables are tender. Once done, stir in the arugula until it is wilted and add a bit of salt and pepper for taste.
  4. Take your pesto and spread an even layer over the baked crust and top it with your freshly cooked ingredients. Pour the cheese on top and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes.


The amount stated above serves about six slices, so just be sure to double the amount if your family loves to eat or be ready to triple it if you're hosting a party.

When you’re done, just serve! It’s amazing what you can do with just a little bit of green making your lifestyle healthier.
