Homemade pizza in 30 minutes — yes, it's possible, and it's shockingly easy to pull off. The key to any speedy pie is a ready-to-go pizza dough so you're not waiting on the yeast to rise. After that, it's all about layering the sauce and toppings and baking it for just a few minutes.

In this go-to recipe for Broccoli Pesto Pizza, a store-bought whole-wheat dough provides the crust for this fuss-free pie, while a blanket of no-cook broccoli-basil pesto serves as the base layer of flavor on top. When it comes to the cheese, opt for a creamy, crumbly goat cheese for a welcome tangy bite in place of the usual mozzarella, and add fresh tomato slices for brightness. After just a quick bake in the oven, finish this top-rated pizza by sprinkling it with nutty Parmesan, fragrant basil and red pepper flakes for subtle heat.
