Broccoli, Ricotta and Golden Garlic Pizza

Broccoli, Ricotta and Golden Garlic Pizza
(makes one 8 or 9-inch pie)

pizza dough for 1 pie (try DJ’s whole wheat recipe, mine, or buy one from a pizza shop)
8-10 cloves garlic, chopped or sliced
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
about 1 cup finely chopped broccoli florets
about 1 cup of Shredded Mozzarella
about 4 oz. ricotta
salt and pepper

Follow pizza dough recipe and prepare an 8 or 9-inch pan with the dough. Preheat oven to instructed temperature.

Heat the garlic and olive oil over a very low flame. Add a couple pinches of salt and cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until the garlic is just turning orangeish-brown and looks soft and more translucent. 

Remove from heat. Toss the chopped vegetables in the pan and season with a little more salt to taste and freshly ground pepper. Evenly scatter the mixture onto the pizza dough. Top with an even scatter of the ricotta & Mozzarella.

Bake for about 6-8 minutes or however long it takes to cook the dough through. Let cool a moment before serving.
