Healthy Broccoli Pizza for Toddlers

  • one 8 gram package active dry yeast (equal to 2 and 1/2 teaspoons or 0.25ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 cups broccoli (cooked until tender, and diced)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • spray can of cooking oil
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Stir yeast, sugar and water together until dissolved. Wait 10 minutes.
  3. Add the olive oil and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add the flour. Mix until well blended.
  5. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Add any extra flour needed, in small amounts, until dough does not stick to your hands when kneading it.
  7. Lightly spray a large baking pan with oil.
  8. Roll the dough out so that it is pretty thin and covers most of the pan. Don't worry about making a crust. Kids prefer the cheesiness, so you can make the whole pizza flat.
  9. Spoon the sauce onto the dough and spread it out evenly. Again, since kids usually prefer not to eat the crust, you can spread it as close to the edge as possible.
  10. Sprinkle the broccoli evenly over the dough.
  11. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly onto the pizza.
  12. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese evenly onto the pizza.
  13. Place it in the oven for 12-14 minutes.
  14. Enjoy!
