Broccolini and Goat Cheese Pizza


Sunny weekends call for light and fresh fare that doesn't overpower the warmth of the weather, yet still provides bursts of flavor complementary to the season. This recipe has been sitting in my imaginary recipe box and the ingredients have been gathered for two weeks, waiting for the perfect opportunity to enjoy al fresco. With highs in the 80s for the past few days, I decided to spend some time cooking up an early Sunday evening dinner that satisfied my every craving. And, it was semi-homemade (hold the cocktail, Sandra Lee)! This is the perfect recipe for last-minute guests, a great addition to a Sunday brunch, or when you just feel like digging into a warm, creamy, gooey, and healthy (Broccoli! Healthy!) treat.
