  • Yellow cornmeal (for sprinkling)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • ½ Medium onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 Garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 cups Baby spinach
  • 3 bunches Broccolini (ends trimmed)
  • ½ cup Whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp Sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • ⅛ tsp Fresh cracked black pepper
  • All-purpose flour (for dusting)
  • 1 16 oz. Frozen pizza dough ball (thawed)
  • 1 8 oz. pkg Fresh mozzerella cheese (thinly sliced)
  • 1 10.6 oz. pkg Wholey® Cleaned Mussel Meat
  • ⅓ cup Roasted red peppers (drained & chopped)
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (for optional garnish)
  1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat; sprinkle underside of rimmed baking pan with cornmeal. In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 4 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and spinach; cook 2 minutes or until fragrant and spinach is wilted, stirring frequently.

  2. In medium bowl, toss broccolini and remaining 1 tablespoon oil; place on hot grill rack, cover and cook 5 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning once. Transfer broccolini to cutting board; carefully cut into 1" pieces.

  3. In small bowl, whisk ricotta cheese, heavy cream, sour cream, lemon juice and black pepper.

  4. On lightly floured work surface, roll dough into 12" circle; carefully transfer to prepared pan. With fork, poke dough several times to vent; slide dough onto hot grill rack. Cover and cook 8 minutes or until bottom of crust is browned, rotating once halfway through cooking; transfer crust back to pan.

  5. Leaving ½" border, spread crust with ricotta mixture; top with mozzarella, mussel meat, red peppers, onion mixture, broccolini and Parmesan cheese. Slide pizza onto hot grill rack; cover and cook 10 minutes or until edges of pizza are golden brown and cheese melts, rotating pizza crust if necessary to prevent crust from burning.

  6. Transfer pizza to cutting board; cut into 8 slices and sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired.
