Roasted Broccoli, Cherry Tomato and Crispy Capicola Pizza – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Weeknight pizza can be a cinch, especially if you use store-bought pizza dough.  Most grocery stores and several pizza places sell dough that you can stretch into your own homemade pie on a sheet pan, and have an delightful meal in minutes.  Roasted broccoli, cherry tomatoes and capicola make the best toppings for an incredible tasting pizza and chunks of mozzarella give it a super cheesy finish.

I used a bag of dough from Trader Joe’s in this recipe, and pulled it as long and wide as it would go, so I could top it with these delicious ingredients.  I used capicola instead of pepperoni for a different flavor profile that I think makes a statement on top of roasted broccoli and cherry tomatoes.  It’s my pizza rendition of a BLT – one I think you’ll enjoy.  I moved the pie onto a cutting board to rest before I sliced it into rectangles to serve. Pretty tasty stuff.
