Brussels Sprouts and Meyer Lemon Pizza

This pizza is a bit untraditional, but you will be blown away by the explosion of flavor it delivers. The nuttiness of the charred Brussels sprouts are a perfect contrast to the bright flavor of lemon and creamy goat cheese. Topped with thin slices of prosciutto, it’s irresistible!

Brussels Sprouts and Meyer Lemon Pizza


1 ball of pizza dough, large enough for a 9-inch pizza

3 cups of thinly-sliced Brussels sprouts

1 shallot, sliced into rings

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 Meyer lemon, cut into thin slices

4 ounces goat cheese

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

3-4 slices Prosciutto (optional)


Olive oil





Preheat oven to 550 degrees F with a baking stone inside the oven. If you don’t have a baking stone, you can make your pizza on a heavy duty baking sheet.

Prepare your crust by sprinkling cornmeal on a sheet of parchment paper. Work the dough into a roughly 9”circle. Drizzle dough with olive oil.

Top dough with an even layer of mozzarella; scatter with sliced Brussels sprouts, thyme, lemon slices and shallots. Drizzle with more olive oil, salt and pepper, and then top with hunks of goat cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden, cheese is bubbly and sprouts are beginning to caramelize.

Chef's Notes:

Meyer lemons are much sweeter than regular lemons. They are also smaller and more round with thin skin that is a deep yellow-orange in color.  Unlike regular lemons, Meyer lemons aren’t in season all year. They are typically available from December to May.   Need a quick and simple pizza crust option? Try using our Simple Pizza Dough recipe.
