Shaved Brussels Sprout Pizza, a simple pizza with hearty earthy flavors, from the golden crispy crust to those wonderfully infused Brussel sprouts, and all pulled together with wonderfully melted fresh mozzarella! Totally scrumptious!
The prep time does not include the making and proofing time for the pizza dough.
We never use a rolling pin to stretch the dough, only our hands. The rolling pin compresses and takes out the air pockets making the dough dense. Drizzle some olive oil at the bottom of the pizza pan, spread it with your fingers, then grab the pizza dough ball and start stretching it gently in the pan with your fingertips from the center outward, leaving a thick border.
The cooking time will be less on a very hot pizza stone so watch it carefully.
Optional toppings for this pizza: walnuts and dates; bacon or prosciutto strips. Or let your creativity flow.
