Crunchy winter pizza with cabbage, mascarpone and gorgonzola

Flower Sprouts or Spearmint are my favorite veggies this winter and, above all, crunchy roasted on a great winter pizza , I've spotted them already last year and have already seen them in recipes from Ottolenghi, but this year their time has come and they are so popular that you can easily get them on the market. As the name suggests, it is a kind of mixture of Brussels sprouts and kale. Pretty, tiny little cabbages, tender as young kale, not too bitter, but spicy. I love these adorable little florets! Of course, if you do not get them, you can also make the pizza either with young kale (use the tender leaves) or with normal Brussels sprouts.
