Flatbreads are a quick family-friendly weeknight meal that the whole family can enjoy. Paired with a green salad it is a balanced meal bursting with flavour.
Preheat oven to 425°F (220C) and position a rimmed baking sheet in the bottom third of the oven.
To make pesto, steam broccoli florets until tender. Add broccoli, lemon juice, basil, water, almonds and Parmesan cheese to a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. Add up to 2 tbsp (30 mL) water as needed to get desired consistency.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook until browned, about 8 minutes. Drain cooked beef on paper towel.
To assemble the pizza, sprinkle parchment paper with cornmeal. Roll pizza dough into an oval or rectangle. Top with broccoli pesto leaving a ½-inch (1 cm) border. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese, red onion and cooked ground beef.
Bake for 20 minutes until bubbly and golden. Slice and serve.
