Yields5 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time50 mins

This pizza is not only Paleo-ed, it's pesto-ed, sausaged, and Dairy Free cheesed. And made in a cast-iron skillet for an absolute taste-fest.

 ½ cup chopped peeling broccoli stems plus 1 cup bite-sized broccoli florests (I'd chop them ... about 4 ounces), divided
 ¼ cup fresh basil, packed
 ¼ cup toasted walnuts
 1 clove garlic, smashed
 1 tbsp llemon, zest, reserved
 1 tbsp lemon juice
 ¼ tsp salt
 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
 6 oz Italian sausage (I used hot), casings removed
 4 oz Paleo pizza crust mix
 4 oz Dairy Free fresh mozzarella, grated
 12 grape tomatoes, halved
 2 tbsp Dairy Free Parmesan cheese
 ¼ tsp ground pepper
1

Preheat over to 450 degrees F. Coat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray or olive oil.

2

Combine broccoli stems, basil, walnuts (to toast, place in nonstick pan over medium heat and shake the pan until toasted), garlic, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add oil and process to combine.

3

Cook sausage in a skillet over medium-low heat, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 6 minutes.

4

Prepare pizza crust mix according to package directions. Pat in 12-inch cast-iron pan and a little up the sides.

5

Spread the dough with the broccoli pesto and sprinkle with the sausage, chopped broccoli, lemon zest, mozzarella,, tomatoes, Parmesan, and pepper.

6

Bake the pizza until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from over. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

NOTE:

You can make the pesto ahead and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
