Sourdough Pizza Dough

Whenever I bake homemade pizza from scratch am I brought back to my childhood. Making pizzas with my best childhood friend and on special occasion her nonna would be there making pizza with us. The smell of oregano and veggies filled the air while her father would laughingly try to teach us how to eat whole garlic cloves and pizza. This was my first time making pizza with the baby, and when asked what toppings we should put on top it sounded like he tried to say broccoli. A topping that just so happen to have been his sisters favourite when they were toddler they “invented” it. You can imagine their surprise when they came downstairs and saw their favourite pizza sitting there (all thanks to the baby).

Watching the kids smile as they toss cheese on a homemade pizzas is always one of my fondest memories. The key to making broccoli pizza is to cut the little flowers off the broccoli and use them as if they are a spice. I suppose you could use whole broccoli florets but that would give it a different flavour. Making pizza with my family is one of my favourite things to do it is always fun and the best part is getting to eat homemade pizza at the end. I really hope you enjoy this recipe and get to make delicious memories of your own.
