Zucchini Tuesday...

29 January, 2013

Bring on the zuke!  Many thanks to Louise for giving cause to celebrate the humble zucchini.

Finally my two plants seem to be producing some decent crops.


So I decided to make pizza.

Probably not the first thing you think of when you think zucchini, but it's one of my favourite pizza toppings.

I use a mandolin to thinly slice the zucchini.



Then a standard pizza base with a tomato sauce is topped with a thin layer of zucchini.


 Then add mozzarella chunks, microplaned parmesan and basil.


 Chucked onto a preheated tray and into the oven on its highest heat. 5-8 minutes later...


Zucchini heaven.

  1. Looks very tasty. The boys had pizza three times this weekend while I was away and I see they had a zucchini or 2 I expect on theirs. As well as anything else they could pile high

    1. Wow, pizza three times over one weekend. Impressive! I myself am a fan of minimal toppings but sometimes I admit more is more...

  3. I made pizza yesterday and did something very similar except i used barbecued eggplant. I will have to try this zucchini version with the portion of pizza dough I put in the freezer.

    1. Mmmm, eggplant. When my eggplant is ready I'll have to give that one a go.
