  • 1/3 cup walnut pieces
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped curly parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • SALAD and pizzas
  • 1/2 cup slivered red onion
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 naan breads (3 oz. each)
  • 3/4 pound Italian turkey sausages, casings removed
  • 1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers
  • 8 pitted kalamata olives, quartered
  • 3/4 cup manchego cheese shaved with a vegetable peeler
  • 2 cups lightly packed baby arugula
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Start pesto: Toast nuts on a baking sheet in oven 4 to 5 minutes. Steam or simmer broccoli until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain, cool in ice water, and pat dry.
  2. 2. Pulse nuts, broccoli, parsley, garlic, and oil in a food processor until almost smooth. Add parmesan and salt; pulse to blend. Set aside.
  3. 3. Start salad: Combine onion, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a bowl; set aside.
  4. 4. Make pizza: Put naan on baking sheet; bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Brown sausage in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, breaking into chunks, 8 to 10 minutes. Spread naan with pesto, then arrange sausage, peppers, olives, and a layer of manchego on top.
  5. 5. Bake until cheese softens, 8 minutes. Add arugula and oil to vinegar mixture. Toss to coat; arrange over pizzas.
