Step 4. Top the parbaked pizza crust with pizza sauce and a sprinkle of Italian seasonings. Add the mozzarella cheese and sliced tomato. Add spoonfuls of pesto on top of the tomato slices.

FAQs for Trader Joe’s broccoli kale pizza
Here are the broccoli pizza crusts cooking instructions from the package:
“Conventional oven: Preheat conventional oven to 450°F. Remove all packaging from the crust and place upside down on a lined sheet pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, turn the crust over, and bake for an additional 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are crispy.
For a crispier crust, broil for an additional 4-5 minutes or until browned. Top with desired sauce and toppings and return to broil until topping is bubbly and browned, about 4 to 5 minutes.”
The secret is in the crispiness of the crust. You don’t want it to be soggy, which could happen if you don’t cook it thoroughly. In the recipe video, you’ll see the bottom of the pizza crust was browned before adding on the toppings and broiling them. A crisp crust is key.
It’s definitely a great pizza for keto friendly diets. You can tell you’re eating broccoli. But the consistency and texture is delicious. It tastes slightly healthier than traditional pizza dough. It tasted like eating a pizza with broccoli on it. The pesto is a really nice flavor combo for this gluten free pizza crust.
