It’s Friday and I know a month ago I thought I would be posting my last pizza recipe for the year with the holidays and all the festive eats. Well that changed with one bite, yes one bite, followed by me devouring a whole pizza! Yep that good and so I just couldn’t hold out in sharing this AMAZING Roasted Brussels Sprouts Neapolitan Pizza.

So being honest I can count the number of times I’ve had pumpkin this year with my fingers, and those times were on a pizza (hey that was a good one but I held out on posting it, well other than on Instagram Stories), the couple pumpkin drinks I had a couple months ago, and all the Toasted Marshmallow Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie recipe testing. Oh and some pumpkin cranberry sprouted tortilla chips, and pumpkin peanut butter. So I guess more like I can count the times I’ve made something with pumpkin. This is not normal for me, usually my family is burnt out on pumpkin before November even rolls around. I’ve checked and nope I don’t have a fever and my taste buds are still working.

This year I just can’t get enough cranberries (haha duh you probably knew that) and all the roasted veggies! Talking squash, sweet potatoes, greens, cauliflower, beets, and Brussels sprouts!! My husband is burnt out on Brussels and has been for a couple months now. It’s all S’s (our oldest daughter) fault, well and mine. She loves them more than me and for weeks we had roasted Brussels on repeat at least twice a week. Yes at least 4 pounds of them a week.

The family decided on homemade pizza on Sunday, yes not a Friday. I gave in since it had been a month or so since we had a pizza night. Not what I wasn’t really feeling pizza, well I was but I really wanted Brussels. As you already know I got them. I took shaved Brussels I make to add to potatoes or veggie bowls, my fav dairy free “pizza” cheese Fresh VeganMozz, and to really add to it coconut bacon and a drizzle of truffle oil. I had wanted Brussels with truffle oil so I had to keep with it. I also love my pizza with balsamic and olive oil but having the truffle oil I didn’t need the olive oil.

Craving it again on Monday I took a pizza we also made with just evoo, garlic, and Fresh VeganMozz as a cheese pizza and added my roasted Brussels to it and yep it wasn’t a fluke it was GOOD! Now just hoping we really don’t have to wait until New Years Eve for our next pizza night. Maybe S will decide to have homemade pizzas at her birthday party in a couple weeks. Don’t worry thought I won’t post any, this is for real my last pizza post of the year!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Neapolitan Pizza


Roasted Brussels Sprouts Neapolitan Pizza
Makes one 10-12″ pizza
1 10-12″ pizza crust (used our homemade Neapolitan Pizza Crust)
8-10, about 3c, shaved Brussels sprouts, or leaves removed
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
4-6oz fresh mozzarella (Miyoko’s Fresh Veganmozz)
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
2-3 TBSP bacon, optional (Organic Matters Vegan Coconut Bacon)
2 TBSP truffle oil, optional

I also like to enjoy mine with balsamic vinegar, Coconut Balsamic Vinegar, for dipping.


Shave Brussels sprouts if you haven’t already, I use a mandolin. You can also buy shaved Brussel sprouts from many stores like Trader Joe’s or you can just pull the leaves off the sprouts. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, shave in garlic cloves and add Brussels sprouts. Sauté the Brussels and garlic stirring frequently to prevent burning until they start to turn golden brown and just start to get crispy Remove from heat.

Heat grill or oven, with pizza stone placed inside, to 550F if using my husband’s crust recipe otherwise heat per your pizza crust directions. Toss or roll your pizza dough and place on a piece of parchment paper. Brush crust with remaining tablespoon of olive oil and top with roasted Brussels sprouts. Crumble mozzarella and sprinkle pieces over top. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Place pizza, keeping it on the parchment as it will easily slide on and off your pizza stone, onto the pizza stone. Check at 6 minutes, the crust should start to be golden brown and slightly blackened on the outer edges like a traditional Neapolitan pizza. If using your own crust bake per your crusts instructions. Remove pizza, sliding a baking sheet under the parchment paper. Top with coconut bacon and a drizzle of truffle oil. Serve with balsamic vinegar, optional. Enjoy!

      Thank you Annmarie! I get the Miyoko’s at Whole Foods but I’ve heard the almond milk mozzarella at Trader Joe’s is good for a vegan option although I haven’t tried it.

  2. This looks AMAZING!! I love roasted brussels sprouts and recently bought TJ’s shaved ones and roasted them – so delish! And with mozzarella?! Yummy!

  3. Genius! brussels sprouts on pizza great idea

  4. I’m going to need to find a way to make this gluten and dairy free!!! It looks amazing!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      It is dairy free already with the Fresh VeganMozz (seriously LOVE it, no affiliation), gluten free you can play with flour but the best one I found is Cup 4 Cup (the regular blue one) but it contains milk powder (not sure if they are changing this). The milk powder has never been an issue for me because I don’t think there is much there. If I were to play with other gluten free blends it would be something comparable to a bread flour, or like Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour or Paleo Flour. Let me know if you try it with a flour and how it turns out.

    This looks so good! I’ll definitely be making a GF version of this. I never thought of adding brussel sprouts to my pizza… amazing!

  6. Tee says:

    One word: Wow! ok maybe a few more, this looks amazing…. pizza is life, and brussel sprouts? Yes please!

  7. This is so delicious! I have been wanting to make something with shaved Brussels sprouts- so this Pizza would be a perfect choice! Plus Miyokos vegan moz is my fav too!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you I hope you love it as much as I do! Seriously my hubby perfecting this recipe and finding Miyoko’s has been life changing and I’m slightly obsessed with pizza. Haha!

  8. Kristin says:

    This looks insanely good! I love brussels sprouts, and this combo is so smart. Yum!

  9. Holy cow. I would have never thought to use Brussels Sprouts on pizza but DANG GIRL this looks good.

  10. Ricki says:

    That may just be the prettiest pizza I’ve seen! 😉 Don’t know why I never thought of Brussels sprouts on pizza–what a great idea.

  11. jill conyers says:

    Looks so so good! What was the name of the GF pizza crust you mentioned on FB?

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you Jill! You can use Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour which I find the best but it does have milk powder. I’ve always been ok with it. I have tried only one other gluten free flour and I wasn’t a fan. Let me know if you try any others and how it turns out.

  12. That crust… those sprouts. Just. Divine!!! Stomach is actually growling (I wish you could hear it!)

  13. The things you put on pizzas are crazy and genius Sarah! I’d never though to top with shredded brussels, but I do love those little cabbages.

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Haha I’ve fallen back in love with pizza in the last year (maybe slightly longer) and it’s so good. All our friends and family know that there is nothing off limits when it comes to pizza in our house and some pretty amazing combos have been made here. This has to be at the top of my all time favorites!

  14. What a fun combination of toppings for a pizza. I definitely need to give this a try, especially since Brussels sprouts have only started hitting the grocery stores.

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you! Oh I hope you do it’s so good! Brussels have been in full swing here for months but in the last few weeks I’ve been buying them on the stalk, I just love it!

  15. abbey says:

    This looks too good, I love brussel sprouts, and I ALSO love pizza, so combining the two just makes sense right?

  19. This looks awesome (and so unexpected too!!) I’ve never thought to put brussels sprouts on a pizza but that is something I could definitely get on board with!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you! We have fun with our pizza combos, or lately it’s more just me and they make favs as back-ups. Haha! It’s such a great combo!

  20. pizzzzaaaaaaa oh man it just makes me happy, maybe because it always signals friday night around here. I absolutely love this combo!!

      Thank you Mary Ellen! I know the love and yet it’s hard but it’s all about balance and this one’s closer to the healthy side! 😉

  23. “followed by me devouring a whole pizza!” Haha So glad I’m not the only one who has done this 😉
    Roasted brussels sprouts on pizza? Damn that’s a great idea! This sounds SO GOOD! Your pizzas are always so good. This one is so creative, the coconut bacon sounds especially delicious with the shaved sprouts.

      In my defense I had a glass of wine, was starving, and it wasn’t a big pizza (10″ ish)… and hey it was covered in veggies! Haha!
