I’ve been trying to make a new kind of pizza each Friday. I came up with a bunch of new and creative ideas, because while I love regular pepperoni, or ham and pineapple, it’s fun to try something new. Here’s one week’s invention:

Hope you like it! I made it for dinner with friends, along with my Philly Cheesesteak Pizza, and we ate all of both of them! Next I’m making Chicken Club Pizza. Hope it’s yummy!

Roasted garlic and broccoli are some of my favorite tastes. On one of my favorite things, they’re even better!
  • 1 pizza crust (see below for a link to our favorite)
  • 1 head garlic (roasted – 350 or 375F 45 min to 1 hour)
  • 1/2 – 1C milk
  • 1t red pepper flakes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3/4 C broccoli
  • 2T oil
  • 1T flour
  • 1t cornmeal (opt. – can also use flour)
  • 1 1/2 C cheese (sharp cheddar and monterey jack)
  1. Roast garlic 375F 45-60 minutes or so – until it’s soft. Roast broccoli – 375F 10 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle cornmeal/flour on greased pizza pan. Roll out dough.
  3. Mash garlic. Set 1/4 of it aside.
  4. Prepare sauce: heat oil, whisk in flour, 30 seconds; add milk a little at a time, whisking constantly. Once thickened, add mashed garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  5. Spread remaining garlic on dough. Top with sauce, cheese, broccoli, and a little more cheese.
  6. Bake according to pizza crust directions (or 375F for 15-18 minutes).
  7. Enjoy!

Cook time includes roasting time for garlic, which is inactive.
