Happy Friday!!! And that calls for some pizza! Friday night got to be pizza night right?! Today it’s not any regular pizza we are going to talking about, we are going a little wild. Put on that experimental hot on and let’s do zucchini pizza y’all!!
Servings: 4 people
- 2 no pizza base (check homemade pizza base recipe on the blog)
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 1/2 cup basil pesto
- 1/2 cup green zucchini, sliced
- 1/2 cup yellow zucchini, sliced
- 1 teaspoon garlic(minced)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
- 1 tablespoon pizza spice mix
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- Few fresh basil leaves
Slice zucchini, toss with salt and minced garlic and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Squeeze out all the liquid from zucchini slices. Pat dry on clean kitchen towel.
Generously spread pizza sauce over the pizza base. If using basil pesto, spread that too over the pizza sauce.
Arrange sliced zucchini over the pizza base.
Add the grated mozzarella cheese covering the top. Place a few fresh basil leaves on top.
Bake in preheated oven at 150 degree centigrade until the cheese melts.
Remove from oven, Sprinkle all the seasoning, evenly on top.
Slice and serve immediately.
Homemade pizza base it a bit time consuming but all worth it. I have recipe for making pizza base at home on the blog do check it out!
You could skip the pizza sauce from the topping list and just add mozzarella cheese and zucchini with all the seasoning. That takes so simple, yet delicious too.
