It's here! It's here! It's finally here! The movie 'Inside Out' is out to buy, and just in time for movie night too. To celebrate the release I decided to re-create the infamous broccoli pizza from one of my favorites scenes in the movie.
"Congratulations, San Francisco! You've ruined pizza!" - Anger
I'd have to respectfully disagree with you, Anger.
"Who puts broccoli on pizza?" - Joy
I do! And I love it too. I mean... what goes better with broccoli than cheese? And what goes better on pizza than cheese? Besides, I will put vegetables in any sneaky place that I can to get my little one to eat more of them!
To re-create this pizza I used a thin and crispy whole wheat pizza crust, a reduced fat cheese blend, and lots of broccoli! For an added bonus I topped it all off with a good sprinkle of one of my favorite cheeses, feta.
I didn't want the pizza to have a traditional red pizza sauce since the one in the movie didn't appear to have a red sauce either. Instead I made my own herbed butter spread, just to give the pizza that bit of moisture that you would expect from a 'sauce'.
This pizza is so yummy that even 'Disgust' herself would give her approval!
There couldn't be a better pizza out there to go along with your 'Inside Out' movie night other than this one right here!
Thankfully, my little one is a vegetable fiend - even though she might say otherwise sometimes. She was stealing broccoli from the bag before I even had a chance to chop it up for the pizza yet. ...All the while telling me she didn't like broccoli. Hah!
