  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces pre-made basil pesto

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss onion, broccoli, mushrooms and olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Divide and spread pesto evenly on both crusts, leaving a ½-inch border. Place half of mozzarella on each pizza. Evenly distribute roasted red peppers and onion-broccoli mixture over pizzas.
  4. Place both pizzas on baking sheets or pizza stones. Transfer to oven, reduce heat to 425°, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn on broiler and continue to cook for another 2 minutes, until veggies and cheese are browned (watch carefully).
