Sheet Pan Broccolini Pizza


Total Time:

20 minutes



You know what my absolute favorite veggie is in the whole wide world. Broccoli. And it can’t just be regular steamed broccoli. I need roasted broccolini with charred edges so it has a little crispness to it with every bite. And you know what is even better than roasted broccolini… Sheet Pan Broccolini Pizza.

Yup. It’s perfection. Add in a little fresh mozzarella cheese to get that creamy cheesy flavor on top of the crispy broccolini plus a few red pepper flakes for some extra kick and plenty of fresh lemon juice to elevate everything times 10… omg we are in business!!

You could use regular broccoli too, or even broccoli rabe, but I’m all about that broccolini because it has smaller florets and longer thinner stalks and the stalks are my favorite part!! They are just so crunchy, I can never get enough!

I’ve been making this pizza for years (and actually posted it for the first time over 7 years ago) but have since made a few adjustments to make it even better! So here’s to this weeks pizza night – Sheet Pan Broccolini Pizza! I’ll fairly certain I’ll never run out of ideas on what you can put on top of pizza crust and let’s just all keep our fingers crossed for that!

    I’m wedding planning as well! When is your wedding? Fortunately, ours isn’t until October- so we have plenty of time. But yes, it can definitely be a little stressful and pizza sounds great. My fiance, Sam, also loves roasted broccolini. We sometimes sprinkle it with Bacon Salt- and it’s amazing (if you like the flavor of bacon)! Great blog, I look forward to reading more!

    I first had broccolini on pizza about 4 years ago, and it was HEAVEN! 😀 This one, with the spicy kick looks even more divine! Best wishes with the wedding planning! I’m kinda really excited for you 🙂

    I LOVE broccolini pizza. There is a place near me that makes one similar to this and it’s my fav!

    This sounds delish…I love broccoli on a white pizza and I love that you have pesto on here, too. I have gotten into this thing where I cannot eat pizza that isn’t spicy…so this is right up my alley!

    I’m new to your blog, and all the recipes sound delicious! I’ve never made homemade pizza before (I KNOW – crazy, right?) and was wondering about the pound of pizza dough called for in this recipe. Do you have a favorite recipe for that, or can I buy pizza dough somewhere?
