Broccolini, Red Capsicum & Garlic Pizza

1 pizza dough ball
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Low moisture mozzarella cheese
1 garlic clove
Red capsicum
Chilli flakes
Extra virgin olive oil

Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.

Prepare Cheese: Place your fresh mozzarella in a container or bowl with a paper towel at the bottom to allow some of the water to drain. Tear both the fresh mozzarella and low moisture mozzarella cheeses into medium-sized pieces. Set aside.

Prepare Broccolini, Capsicum & Garlic: Cut the broccolini into small to medium lengths, finely dice the red capsicum, and thinly slice the garlic.

Preheat Oven: If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.

For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.

Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.

Assemble Pizza: To assemble the pizza, distribute mozzarella pieces (around 2 cm in diameter and at least 1.5 cms apart) evenly across the dough. Add broccolini, red capsicum, and garlic slices, drizzling extra virgin olive oil evenly over the toppings.

Bake Your Pizza: If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.

For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.

Serving: Once done, remove the pizza from the oven and place it on a serving board. Now its time to enjoy your healthy, low-calorie, and delicious Broccolini, Red Capsicum & Garlic Pizza!
