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

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


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.


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


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


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


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.


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