Spinoccoli Pizza

It's really surprising that it has taken me this long to get this recipe up.  I made it for the first time years ago and it's one we have enjoyed many times since then.  The recipe is slightly adapted from Annie's Eats.

For the white sauce:
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 clove garlic (smashed)
Salt and pepper to taste
6 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

For the pizza:
Pizza dough (this recipe or store bought)
Olive oil
1/2 cup packed baby spinach leaves
1 cup very small broccoli florets
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 450. In a small saucepan melt the butter over medium heat then whisk in flour.  Continue to stir and let bubble and turn a golden brown color. Whisk in heavy cream, garlic, salt and pepper.  Stir until it thickens up then remove from heat, remove the garlic clove and stir in parmesan cheese.

Roll out the pizza dough on a pizza stone or sheet pan.  Brush the outer crust with olive oil Pour the sauce on and spread evenly over the dough.  Top with spinach, broccoli and cheeses.  Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until pizza is done.
