INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine flour mix and yeast packet in a large mixing bowl with 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water. Stir with a fork until dough begins to form.
  2. Knead by hand for 3 minutes, or until dough is soft and smooth. Transfer to a clean, lightly oiled bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. (After this step, you can refrigerate for use within 1-3 days.)
  3. Meanwhile in a saucepot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of salt. Blanch broccolini by submerging in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Once bright green, remove broccolini with a slotted spoon and transfer immediately to a bowl of ice water to halt the cooking process.
  4. In the same boiling water, blanch the Brussesl sprouts by submerging for about 2 minutes. Once bright green, drain and transfer to a separate bowl of ice water. Once vegetables have cooled, drain and pat dry.
  5. Preheat oven to 500˚F.
  6. Cut prepared pizza dough in half. Roll out dough into a circle on a floured surface and spread evenly with pesto.
  7. Top with mozzarella, broccolini and Brussels sprouts.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust becomes golden. Remove pizza from oven and top with Parmigiano-Reggiano and pepper flakes.
