Does anyone know how to break down the sprouts so they look like this? I think they'd cook better this way than if they were simply hacked up.

Trying my first BSprouts pie tomorrow!

Core them pretty deep and simply peel off the leaves. You can kind of just turn them inside out after you get the outermost leaves off. Throw away the dirty ones on the outside of course.

Nevermind.  I saw that my question was already answered in the thread.

I make BS pies all the time. It's one of my favorites. I've realized that its worth the extra effort to peel the leaves off whole. It takes a long time to do it but the flavor of the whole leaves is really worth it.  They're still good when you chop them, but much better with whole leaves.

You have to do the whole leaves - at least in the WFO version - the charring on the tips is absolutely key to the flavor of the pie.

We should also mention the incomparable Rosa from Pizzeria Bianco: red onion, Parmesan Reggiano, pistachios, and rosemary.  I like to add tomato sauce as well, but it's great either way. The pistachios and the onions do something extraordinary together. 

And what about olive oil, garlic, Parmesan and Aleppo pepper with a big pile of arugula thrown on at the end. Now that's delicious!

A few things I haven't seen on this page yet

Capers
Jalepenos, pickled even
Red onion
Olives
Zuccini, optionally soaked in lemon juice
Cherry tomatoes
Grapes
Pineapple
Pumpkin (pre-cooked - boiled or roasted)
Seeds... careful not to burn them


I'm not personally a giant fan of the faux meats on pizza - not that they can't be good, but for some reason they always seem superfluous to good natural ingredients.

Thin-sliced roasted eggplant, marinated artichokes(drained), orange peppers, onions, olives and feta cheese.

No sauce, sautéed shiitake mushrooms on top of fontina cheese, a little shredded mozzarella, a hint of fresh ground black pepper and finish with a healthy drizzle of white truffle oil when it comes out of the oven.  This is one of my favorites!

Fruit is "vegetarian."  Try some mozzarella, dollops of brie with fresh peach slices and a swirl of olive oil.  Add balsamic vinegar reduction and basil (or arugula) post bake.

I do Greek toppings.

Bottom to top:

Roasted garlic oil
Fresh sliced tomato
Oregano
Spinach leaves
Mozzarella (fresh and LM)
Kalamata olives
Feta

It all the rage to be hating on truffle oil these days.  I don't give a @%&#.  It's really good on this pie.
