YIELD: 1 pizza; 8 slices
1 baked pizza crust (whole grain preferred)
1 cup spinach pesto
2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 (10-ounce) package frozen (or fresh) broccoli florets, steamed until tender-crisp and drained
4 ounces mozzarella-style non-dairy cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1/4 cup Parmesan-style non-dairy cheese
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon no-salt Italian or garlic herb seasoning blend (such as Mrs. Dash)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Place the unwrapped, baked pizza crust on a large baking sheet or pizza pan. (I prefer one with tiny holes, especially designed for baking pizza).
Spread the pesto sauce evenly over the pizza shell, leaving a small rim around the edge.
Arrange the tomatoes and broccoli over the pesto, distributing evenly.
Sprinkle with shredded non-dairy cheeses and sliced onions.
Drizzle olive oil over the onions, then sprinkle lightly with Italian or garlic herb seasoning blend.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the non-dairy cheese is melted and beginning to lightly brown.
Inhale deeply while baking – you can almost live off the aroma alone. Remove pizza from the oven, slice and serve.
