This pie turned pizza is just too tasty to resist! A simple pie crust is loaded with broccoli and onions perked up with spices, herbs and of course, pizza sauce.


Loads of cheese grated atop the pie before baking gives a luscious, cheesy texture and fab taste. Serve the Broccoli Pizza Pie immediately on preparation, while the cheese is still soft and gooey.


Pair the Broccoli Pizza Pie with a refreshing glass of Shirley Temple or Mock Sangria and enjoy as a snack or pair it with one of you favourite Soups to make a hearty meal.
