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!!
A good pizza sauce spread generously over the pizza crust and zucchini slices scattered all over. A good pizza according to me has to have a good seasoning. So come on there, don’t be shy, be generous, go bold with seasoning.
A riot of green, yellow, red, this zucchini pizza is light and packed with flavors. The flavors are simple here. Fresh pizza base made from homemade pizza dough , mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, salt, fresh ground pepper and loads of Italian pizza seasoning! Then, top with zucchini slices and fresh basil leaves to enhance the flavour of the pizza. When the pizza comes out it has that perfectly balanced, well seasoned beautiful pizza.

Ok I know what you are thinking. Zucchini is the worst topping for a pizza! It’s so watery and bland. So how do you punch up the flavors of this typically bland zucchini pizza ?! I have found a very easy and effective way to do that. Once zucchini is sliced, toss it with salt and garlic (minced) for few minutes, then squeeze out all the liquids from zucchini. Then pat dry it with kitchen towel and then use it for the topping. So now your delicious pizza wont turn soggy while it cooks and absorb as much flavour as it can from the seasoning.
Making pizza at home is now very easy; Delmonte Pizza Sauce which has the authentic Italian taste makes every pizza delicious. Now you don’t have to spend a lot buying pizza from outside, make healthy and hygienic pizza at home.
