Preparation steps


For the pizza dough, clean broccoli, wash and divide into florets. Blend in a food processor at several intervals until fine but still chunky. Stir in chickpea flour, 2 ounces water, and 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Blend the mixture into a malleable dough, adding more water or chickpea flour if needed.


Pour the broccoli mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, spread into an oval patty about 1/2-inch thick, and bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C / 350 °F for 15-20 minutes.


Meanwhile, for the pesto, wash basil and parsley, shake dry and pluck leaves. Peel garlic, cut into quarters and finely blend with basil, parsley, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt, pepper and lemon zest and mix in enough cold water to make a creamy pesto. Season the pesto to taste.


Spread pesto on broccoli pancake and bake for another 5-8 minutes. Meanwhile, clean and wash zucchini, radishes and green onions. Cut zucchini into thin slices. Slice radishes into thin slices. Cut spring onions into rings. Wash spinach and spin dry.


Wash asparagus, cut off woody ends and peel lower third if necessary. Blanch asparagus in boiling salted water for approx. 2 minutes, then rinse, drain and cut in half lengthwise.


Top the pizza with spinach and spread the prepared vegetables on top. Season everything with fleur de sel and pepper and drizzle with remaining olive oil.
