Zucchini Pizza

August 17, 2010

I had a productive afternoon at school getting ready for the first day of school tomorrow!! Yikes!!

My afternoon snack was my favorite kind of pear–D’Anjou. I like that they are slightly crunchy because I heart crunchy foods!!

After work, I “sprinted” home and got busy prepping dinner.

When I saw Jenna’s post on Cheesy Zucchini Pizza a while back, I knew I had to try it!! It made my mouth water when seeing the pictures, and tonight was the night I finally was able to make it.

Craig and I were not disappointed!! This recipe was a winner!!–easy, only 5 ingredients, and incredibly good!!

I had two pieces of this cheesy pizza for dinner.

Zucchini Pizza

Ingredients:

  • pizza dough (I made KG’s Homemade Pizza Dough on Sunday.)
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Either dust cornmeal on a baking sheet (or pizza stone–even better!) or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Grate the zucchinis and press with paper towels to soak up the liquid. Mix the zucchini with the mozzarella cheese and a dash of salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
In a small bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and garlic. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
Work the pizza dough into whatever shape your heart desires. Spread the ricotta cheese on top and then top with the zucchini mixture. Add some pepper flakes if you like spice in your life.
Reduce oven temperature to 450 and bake pizza for about 12 minutes, or until the crust begins to turn golden and the cheese has started to bubble.
Enjoy!

    1. That pizza looks AMAZING! If only I could figure out a lactose free version… hmm. It could happen!

    1. I have the most prolific zucchini plant! I harvest several flowers and zucchini daily. Thank you for this ah-mazing recipe! I will try it tonight and use Trader Joes’ whole wheat pizza dough. Thanks!
