If this doesn’t get your kids to like broccoli, nothing will.
For the cheese sauce:
Start by melting the butter/margarine in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Once it is melted, add the flour. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes or until the gummy flour taste is cooked out of the flour. Whisking constantly to avoid lumps, add the milk. Once this is incorporated, turn the burner down to low and add the cheese and cayenne. That’s it, cheese sauce is finished! Set it aside for a moment.
For the pizza:
Preheat the oven to 450 F. Put your pizza stone in the oven while it preheats, if using one.
Place the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for about a minute. I used a rotisserie chicken so it came fully cooked. Shred the chicken into large bite sized pieces.
Roll out the pizza dough into your desired shape. Place dough on a pizza peel or inverted jelly roll pan that has been generously dusted with the cornmeal. Spread the cheese sauce over the dough. Top with the chicken, broccoli and shredded cheese.
Place pizza in the oven onto the pizza stone or directly in the oven if using a jelly roll pan. Bake for about 10 minutes then check on the pizza. It should be turning golden brown and the cheese should be melted. If it needs a few more minutes add a minute at a time. Mine took about 11 minutes.
Remove pizza from the oven, slice and enjoy!
**Note, you can switch things up very easily with this recipe. Adding ham and using Swiss cheese would be great! Get your kids involved and let them make individual pizzas to their liking. Flip one side of the pizza over on top of itself, pinch the edges together and make it into a calzone. The possibilities are endless!
