Broccoli Pizza

We stop at the same pizza place a few times a month for a quick slice for lunch when we are out shopping or running errands. This particular pizza place has the best broccoli pizza. It's topped with broccoli, lots of garlic, and ricotta cheese—and is out of this world! I decided to try and copy the recipe and the results were great! It was cheesy-garlicky goodness. The crust was the only difference. I really have to conquer my fear of crust and try my hand at homemade.

Broccoli Pizza
1 crust (homemade or store bought)
1/4 - 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup broccoli, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons canola oil   

Preheat oven to temperature indicated on crust.
Brush top of crust with canola oil.
Drop heaping tablespoons of ricotta cheese on top of crust.
Sauté broccoli with garlic and canola oil over medium-high heat.
Pour broccoli over ricotta.
Cover with shredded cheese and any remaining ricotta.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes.
