Prosciutto Brussels Sprouts Broccoli Pizza. Brussels sprouts and broccoli are good-for-you green cruciferous vegetables that are believed to protect against diseases such as cancer. These green veggies offer the healthy green portion of this sauceless pizza. Crispy Prosciutto ham provides an additional crunch to the creamy goat cheese chunks and shredded mozzarella cheese on a delectable dough.

Set aside while you prepare the toppings. Also preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and blanch some broccoli florets (boil some water, add broccoli florets, cook for 4 minutes, then plunge the broccoli into ice water, let sit a few minutes, drain and set aside).
