Broccoli pizza

By Jenna Sinclair (

Serves 2 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 15 mins | Calories 403 (per serving)


  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 100g (3½oz) ground almonds
  • 1 medium-sized broccoli
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • oil, for greasing
  • toppings of your choice
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and grease with oil
  2. Blitz the broccoli in a blender. Transfer to a heatproof bowl, cover with clingfilm, then microwave for 5 minutes. Empty the steaming hot broccoli onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, squeeze all the moisture out. Mix well with the almonds, eggs and seasoning in a bowl.
  3. Place the mixture on the baking tray and shape into a pizza-base, with slightly thicker edges. Bake in the oven for 6 minutes, or until a little golden round the edges and crispy. Remove from the oven, top with your chosen toppings and return to the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
