Thirty-Minute Broccoli Crust Pizza for a Needed Break from Writing.

By: Layla from Gimmie Delicious

If you are like me, when I write and especially if I'm in the zone, I don't want to stop to eat. So I have a bad habit of grabbing anything handy. That usually means sugars and carbs. And, really, that's so unhealthy and, for me, translates into quick high energy and a faster loss of energy and brain power.

So, here's a great 30-minute recipe that's low in carbs and sugar. and, more important, healthy for the body and the brain! In the half an hour, you can take a break - we all need to take breaks to let our creative juices stir - and prepare a hot yummy meal.

PREP 5minutes mins
COOK 20minutes mins
TOTAL 25minutes mins



Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (highly recommend) or grease with oil; set aside.

Process the broccoli in a food processor or shred with a cheese grater until the broccoli is the same consistency as rice.

Place broccoli in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1-2 minute or until it is steamed. Cool for at least one minute then pour broccoli on a clean washcloth and squeeze as much liquid as you can out of the broccoli until you are left with a dry ball of broccoli.

In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, eggs, cheeses, and seasoning with a spoon until fully combined. Pour mixture into the pre-lined baking sheet and shape into a pizza crust, 1/2 inch thick.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and add the pizza sauce and cheese. At this point feel free to add desired toppings (veggies or meat). Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Cool for at least 5 minutes before cutting.

There you are! All in 30 minutes. Hope you try it and like it. What do you cook for a quick break when you are glued to your writing desk? Let's exchange recipes!
