Before moving to New York, my husband and I lived in San Francisco. Our first few weeks there were a little uncomfortable, to say the least.

Our furniture was being shipped from Chicago, and we spent a lot of time sitting on our air mattress. Let’s just say that I was very excited when our furniture finally arrived … ha!

It was February, and after all of our moving expenses, I wasn’t expecting anything special for Valentine’s Day.

Our plans were to order pizza and drink some wine. When I opened the pizza box, I was surprised by a heart-shaped pie.

It was so sweet and made our night even more special!

We were lucky enough to have a great pizza place around the corner from our apartment, and that was the first time I had their Green Pizza with Pesto, Feta, Artichokes, and Broccoli. It was so delicious that I could have eaten it every day!

Now we’re in New York, and it’s been over a year since I had that Green Pizza. I’m not sure what took me so long, but I finally decided to recreate it.

Making Green Pizza with Pesto, Feta, Artichokes, and Broccoli

This Green Pizza with Pesto, Feta, Artichokes, and Broccoli is packed with delicious ingredients! I made my own pesto, but if you’re in a time pinch, then feel free to use your favorite prepacked variety. It will still be super tasty.

Next, I topped the pizza with fresh broccoli and artichoke hearts, just like they did at my fave pizzeria. It’s finished with a generous serving of tasty feta chunks and lots of ooey, gooey mozzarella. Yum!

After you bake your pizza it’s time to eat … the best part for sure!

Give my Green Pizza with Pesto, Feta, Artichokes, and Broccoli a try. I think you’ll love it, too!

This Green Pizza with Pesto, Feta, Artichokes, and Broccoli is packed with delicious veggies, flavorful homemade pesto, and lots of ooey, gooey cheese!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 470 kcal
Ingredients
For Basil-Spinach Pesto:
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup basil leaves lightly packed
  • 1 cup spinach leaves lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • salt
  • pepper
For Pizza and Toppings:
  • 2 heads broccoli (not bunches)
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • nonstick spray or olive oil
  • 1 (14 oz.) can quartered artichoke hearts drained
  • 8 oz shredded mozzarella (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If pizza dough has been refrigerated, remove from the fridge so it can warm up a bit.
Prepare pesto:
  1. Add walnuts to a small skillet over medium heat; cook until lightly toasted, stirring often. Let cool.
  2. Combine walnuts, garlic, basil, and spinach in a food processor; process until minced.
  3. Add Parmesan, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Process until completely smooth. Set aside.
Prepare pizza:
  1. Cut broccoli into small florets and place in a microwaveable dish with a lid.
  2. Drizzle with a couple tablespoons water, cover, and microwave until just tender (about 3-4 minutes).
  3. Drain water from broccoli and set aside to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or cooking spray. (I usually put a little oil on the pan, then spread it with a paper towel. That way the oil is distributed evenly, and the paper towel soaks up any excess oil.)
  5. Place pizza dough on pan and press to the edges of the pan. (If the dough draws back from the edges, let it rest for a few minutes and then press again. Repeat until dough is relaxed and covers the entire pan.)
  6. Top dough with a thin layer of pesto. (You will have pesto left over; I only used about half.)
  7. Sprinkle 3/4 of the mozzarella cheese over the pesto.
  8. Evenly distribute broccoli and artichokes over cheese.
  9. Top with remaining mozzarella and then sprinkle with feta.

  10. Bake pizza for 25 to 35 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheese is lightly golden.
  11. Let cool slightly, then cut and serve immediately. Enjoy!

This is such a beautiful pizza, Ginnie! We arrived in San Francisco before our furniture did too. Luckily it was only a few days for us and not a few weeks, but we spent some quality time on our air mattress and a couple lawn chairs. Fond memories! We are still here and don’t plan to leave any time soon 🙂

Love this recipe! Although I usually use store-bought pesto (since I am without a food processor), I love adding spinach and grilled chicken to the pizza! Thanks again for the idea!
