Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 2 large heads broccoli, broken into florets
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 125g dairy-free soft cheese alternative
  • 3 mixed peppers, chopped
  • 125g red cabbage, shredded Handful basil leaves
  • 2 x 125g bags Co-op baby spinach


  1. Put the broccoli florets into a food processor and blitz until they resemble fine breadcrumbs — you may need to do this in batches
  2. Dry fry the broccoli crumbs in a large nonstick pan for 8 mins, stirring frequently, to dry it out
  3. Season with black pepper, then transfer to a bowl and set aside
  4. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7
  5. When the broccoli mixture has cooled slightly, stir in the ground almonds and shape into two balls
  6. Put onto lined baking trays and roll out into round pizza bases
  7. Brush with the oil and bake for 8 mins
  8. Remove the bases from the oven
  9. Gently spread them with the soft cheese alternative, then top with the peppers and red cabbage — the bases will be quite soft, so handle with care
  10. Cook for 8-10 mins more, until the veg has softened
  11. Season, then scatter with the basil leaves and serve with the spinach on the side
