Broccoli Pizza

As I was blogging this morning, Lee and I were watching Rachel Ray's show "Fitness Legends". Her guest Daphne Oz showed how to make "broccoli pizza", which is basically roasted broccoli with pizza seasonings and parmesan cheese. Hey, we have broccoli. We have shredded Parmesan. I have lemons somewhere... We are making broccoli pizza for lunch!!! Yum yum yum.

Daphne Oz's Cheesy “Pizza” Broccoli
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried chile flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Sea salt and fresh-cracked black pepper


Steam the whole head of broccoli for a lovely presentation, or speed the process along by breaking or cutting into bite-sized florets. Steam the broccoli until you can easily insert a knife into the center of the broccoli head (about 20 minutes) or fork into the large florets (5 to 6 minutes).
Preheat the broiler. Drain the broccoli and place it in a baking dish. Drizzle it with the oil, and sprinkle it with cheese, chile flakes and oregano. Broil the broccoli until the cheese is golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice onto the broccoli, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
