I find it hard to believe that I went a solid chunk of my life avoiding Brussels sprouts. These little brassicas heads, when prepared well, are an absolute cold-weather treat. For the most part, I roast the Brussels sprouts as it’s near impossible to cook them into mush or a horrible flavor. This Brussels sprout pizza is a favorite of mine on pizza night and one the whole family can agree on making. I like to include all those loose leaves that fall off as you cut the Brussels. They turn into crisp chips on the pizza, adding a fun texture to the overall recipe.

Brussels Sprout Pizza Variations
I know it can seem strange at first mixing up pizza toppings. One of my favorite things to do is find pizza places that are experimenting with different flavors/toppings. I’ve found that even the weirdest of combinations, in the right hands, can make for an awesome pizza.
- Brassicas: I love this pizza with many different vegetables! Broccoli, cauliflower, or even kale would work great in place of the Brussels sprouts. I recommend roasting the broccoli or cauliflower before adding it to the pizza.
- Cheese: Try smoked mozzarella, gouda, or fontina for different flavors of cheese.
- Gluten-Free: Try your hand at homemade gluten-free pizza dough.
