Sausage and broccoli pizza recipe

Sausage and broccoli pizza recipe
  • Serves: 6
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes


‘My daughter Olivia’s favourite food is pizza,’ says Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo. ‘She loves sausages and broccoli too. This pizza is nutritious and filling. It’s a meal on its own.’

  1. Preheat the oven to its highest setting. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and sweat on a medium-high heat for a few minutes. 
  3. Add the broccoli, sausage and salt, to taste. Sauté for 1 minute. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes. 
  4. Prepare the pizza bases. Sprinkle a little flour on a work surface. Using your fingers, spread the dough into a thin circle roughly 30cm in diameter. 
  5. Repeat with another ball of dough. Sprinkle flour over 2 large flat baking sheets. Place the pizza bases on them. 
  6. Put the tomatoes in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Add a drizzle of olive oil and stir. 
  7. Spoon the tomatoes over the bases. Add mozzarella, the sausages and broccoli, and drizzle with olive oil. 
  8. Reduce the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7. Bake the pizzas for about 8 minutes, or until cooked.

Pregnant? Broccoli is rich in iron, which helps make extra blood for you and your growing baby.
