If you associate sprouts with Thanksgiving food or a holiday feast, this brussels sprouts pizza will surprise you.

Created by Brandon Matzek at the food blog Kitchen Konfidence, the Brussels Sprouts and Prosciutto Pizza recipe is topped with cured ham and deep fried brussels sprout leaves. The blogger explains "the nuttiness of the charred leaves is a perfect contrast to the salty richness of the pork and cheese." The salty prosciutto slices become crispy and the brussels sprout leaves blackened when the pie cooks in the oven, and neither needs to be pre-cooked first.

The brussels sprouts pizza makes a delicious dinner as it incorporates the idea of incorporating nutrient-dense greens in a typically less healthy dish.
