Perhaps you have heard brussel sprouts are one of the most unpopular vegetables that exist, at least according to pop culture. Is such a judgment accurate or not? You may be glad to hear it’s been wildly blown out of proportion, so to prove it’s not so bad, here we have a brussel sprouts pizza.
The layer of mozzarella cheese is essential in this recipe — cheese goes great with all sorts of vegetables, and brussel sprouts are no exception. With the cheese and the mushrooms you’ll get a rather filling meal. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this delicious, just those three plus the right sauce and dough are enough for you to see that brussel sprouts don’t deserve the infamy they currently have.
Brussel Sprouts Pizza
- 1 cup pizza sauce homemade or storebought
- 400 g brussel sprouts
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese sliced
- 1 cup mushrooms sliced
- Olive oil
- Paprika to taste
- Preheat the oven at 450 °F
- Prepare the brussel sprouts by using a knife to cut the leaves off the body of the sprout, and then slicing what's left. You can make the pieces as large or small as you want.
- Sauté the mushrooms in a pan with olive oil until they're well cooked. Once they have acquired some color, add the brussel sprout leaves and pieces, and sauté everything together with the paprika until the mushrooms and brussel sprouts have been coated well with the oil and the paprika.
- Cover the pizza dough with the sauce, coating a side thoroughly except the edges.
- Place the brussel sprouts and the mushrooms on the sauce, distributing them evenly. Sprinkle paprika over everything, if you wish to add more.
- Cover everything with a layer of mozzarella cheese. Don't be afraid about overlapping the slices, you need to have a layer of molten cheese over everything.
- Bake the pizza in the oven for eight minutes. Remember to keep an eye on the pizza, but make sure you don't remove it before the dough has been cooked properly.
