Pizza with Brussels Sprouts, Salami, and Goat Cheese

Brussels sprouts on pizza? You bet! Just slice them thin (no need to precook) and you get this delicious, nutty, roasted-Brussels-sprouts flavor on your pizza. I made this with some local goat cheese from Hillman farm and the last of the Brussels sprouts from our garden. Substitute bacon or pepperoni for the salami if you like.

1 14-inch pizza crust
Olive oil
3/4 - 1 cup thinly sliced Brussels sprouts
2-3 ounces shredded mozzarella
2 ounces salami, sliced thin or diced
2-3 ounces goat cheese
1/2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly brush the pizza crust with olive oil.

Combine the sliced Brussels sprouts with a little more olive oil in a small bowl and toss to coat.

Spread the mozzarella over the pizza crust. Distribute the sprouts and salami over it, then dot with goat cheese. Sprinkle with the rosemary, salt, and pepper.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crust is done and the cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-4.
