Brussels Sprout & Chicken Pizza with Parmesan Cheese


  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 lb roasted Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced (quick: use food processor)
  • 1 whole wheat pizza crust, thawed (I use Trader Joes)
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 small skinless grilled chicken breast (about 6 ounces), chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425°F or as high as it goes.

2. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion and garlic until onion is soft and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Combine onion mixture with Brussels sprouts in a large mixing bowl.

3. Place dough onto a pizza stone or large baking sheet and kneed out. Spread tomato sauce over crust and top with Brussels sprout mixture, sprinkle with pepper.

4. Bake for approx. 20 minutes, when crust starts to brown.

5. Top with chicken and bake until crust is crisp and lightly browned, about 5 more minutes. Then sprinkle with Parmesan and bake for another 3 minutes.

6. Remove pizza from oven and sprinkle with extra cheese (optional.) Cut into square pieces and serve.


Honey Sesame Shrimp & Brussels Sprouts Stir Fry


The day before spring and a major snow storm hits Montreal. Typical, I know, but disappointing nonetheless. With it being a snow day from work it was one of those days where I had to cook whatever I had left in the fridge. Luckily I always keep a bag of frozen raw shrimp in the fridge for unable-to-shop occasions like this. Combined with a bag of Brussels sprouts from Costco and I have a meal- honey sesame shrimp and brussels sprout stir-fry. (My sprouts took about 10min until they were browned.) The touch of sesame oil at the end adds the perfect flavour, and for a finishing touch drizzle sriracha on top if you’re like me and love spice.
