Microwave-in-bag fresh vegetables help this meal come together lickety-split. A hot cast-iron skillet helps to crisp the bottom of the crust while the surface gets golden brown under the broiler--no baking required.


How to Make It

Step 1

Place dough on counter at room temperature; cover to prevent drying.

Step 2

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 3

Microwave broccoli according to package directions. Carefully open bag; cool slightly. Halve or quarter larger florets.

Step 4

Cook bacon in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat 6 minutes or until crisp; remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Add broccoli to drippings in pan; toss well to coat. Remove broccoli from pan.

Step 5

Place cheeses and garlic in a bowl; stir to combine (mixture will be thick).

Step 6

Heat pan over medium-high heat. Roll dough into a 10 1/2-inch circle. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Remove pan from heat. Fit dough into pan, pressing slightly up sides of pan. Spread cheese mixture evenly over dough. Return pan to medium-high heat; cook 2 minutes or until browned on bottom. Place pan in oven; broil 2 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Top pizza with broccoli mixture; broil 1 minute. Remove pan from oven; sprinkle bacon over top. Cut into 8 wedges.

This turned out well even though I don't have a 10" cast iron skillet (I used a regular 10" nonstick skillet) and I didn't pay close enough attention to the recipe and wound up broiling with all the toppings on for about 5-6 minutes.  It was a little too doughy in the middle but with the right pan and a bit longer cook time, I think it could be perfect.  Will try it again.

This pizza's amazing. You have to try it. The cheese combo is awesome! It balances well with the broccoli & bacon
