Ingredients

1 pound pizza dough
whole wheat, or you can make your own
*
3 cups broccoli florets
chopped
cup water
10 cups swiss chard
about 9 ounces
¼ teaspoon salt
or more to taste
1 x black pepper
to taste
*
¾ cup basil pesto
*
1 cup cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
*

Directions

Position oven rack in the lowest position, preheat to 450°F.

Coat pizza pan with cooking spray.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the pizza pan.

Transfer to the pizza pan.

Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook broccoli and water in a large skillet over medium heat, covered, until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.

Stir in Swiss chard and cook, stirring, until wilted, 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.

Spread pesto evenly over the crust, top with the broccoli mixture and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes.

Cool slightly, serve warm.

I added sun-dried tomatoes and black olives, loved it. The cheddar and the brocolli really works well.

The 0g Fat Grams in this recipe is incorrect. Both the pesto and the low fat cheddar cheese contain fat. Additionally, you're stating that 11% of the calories are from fat. Could you please update your recipe for the correct Nutrition Facts? Thanks so much!
Sincerely,
