Broccoli, Bocconcini, and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza

Broccoli, Bocconcini, and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza – Since we began making pizza at home versus buying it out, I have found that it’s a great way to use up vegetables and cheese that are in your refrigerator. Pizza is not limited to pepperoni and mozzarella! (Although this pizza does use mozzarella.)

We had a bunch of bocconcini leftover from an appetizer that I made and we thought it would make a great pizza – and we were right! We also had broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes and that really rounded out this dish. With just a small amount of pizza sauce, the simple ingredients were really able to shine through. I love making different kinds of pizza with all different toppings – give it a try!
