TRUST when I say that you need to put broccoli on your pizza.

After blanching the bite-sized florets, they’ll get seriously roasty and delicious when finished in the high heat Stoke Outdoor Pizza Oven.

We like to pair these beauties with a traditional red sauce, kalamata olives, thinly sliced red onions and hunks of mozzarella.

Oh, and don’t forget the drizzle of a good extra virgin olive oil and fresh crack of salt and pepper.

It’s *chef’s kiss* amazing.

  • Pizza dough
  • Broccoli florets, bite-sized
  • Kalamata olives, pitted
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • Pizza sauce
  • Fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • Fresh cracked salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper


Step 1

Preheat your Stoke Outdoor Pizza Oven on high heat for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Blanch your broccoli florets by adding them to boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes, or until bright green in color.

Remove from boiling water and rinse with cold water to cool.

Set aside. 

Step 3

Flour your pizza dough.

Poke, knead and stretch dough until it’s at your desired size.

We were looking for rustic 10 inch pizzas in this recipe.

Step 4

Generously coat your pizza peel with semolina flour and add dough to build your pizza on the peel.

Spread pizza sauce on dough, leaving about an inch around the edges for your crust.

Add red onion, then kalamata olives and mozzarella slices.

Top with broccoli.

Hit with a light drizzle of olive oil and season with fresh cracked salt and pepper.

Step 5

Slide pizza into oven using your pizza peel.

Rotate your pizza 90 degrees every 20 to 30 seconds using the peel.

If you’re struggling to turn the pizza with the flip of your wrist, don’t hesitate to use tongs to help you out. This oven is HOT and you definitely don’t want to use your hands.

Step 6

Your pizza will be done when it has a nice leopard color on the crust.

Remove from oven using the pizza peel.

Cool slightly, cut and enjoy!

Pro Tip: Go light on the toppings. Less is more with these pizzas.
