night healthy pizza night!!

  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough,
    preferably whole-wheat
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 5 ounces arugula, any tough stems
    removed, chopped (about 6 cups)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim
    mozzarella cheese


  1. Position oven rack in the lowest
    position; preheat to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly
    floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the baking
    sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook broccoli and
    water in a large skillet over medium heat, covered, until the broccoli is
    crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in arugula and cook, stirring, until
    wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread pesto evenly over the
    crust, top with the broccoli mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until
    crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
