Pizza a la Zucchini

Behold: The easiest, dare-I-say-yummiest pizza you’ll ever make! Inspired by the GARGANTUAN zucchini I found in our garden the other day. Also, inspired by Pinterest. (What isn’t these days?) I wrote this post a while ago, but China kind of held things up. What an unforgettable experience! Okay, on to the recipe…

Five ingredients. Hydrating rather than bloaty-bloating. Yes, you’ll probably need a knife and fork, but now you can look classy while you eat your pizza.

Pizza a la Zucchini

PAM cooking spray or olive oil spray
1 zucchini, any size
Tomato sauce
Pecorino romano or mozzarella cheese, shredded
Basil leaves or pesto or both

Turn on oven broiler. Place aluminum foil on a pan and spray with PAM.

Slice zucchini about 1/2 inch thick, either in rounds or in huge slices (like above). Place onto prepared pan and spray or coat with PAM/olive oil. Broil for 5-7 minutes, on each side.

Once broiled, spread sauce on each slice, then top with basil, pesto, cheese. Broil 1 minute or until cheese is delightfully melted and/or browned.

These were so delicious–and as my dad said, “Fun!” I love almost anything in a tomato sauce and pecorino combination. The basil was fresh from the garden, which was made into pesto as well as placed directly on the pizza. The zucchini filled up that entire pan (a huge jelly roll pan) plus three more pieces that are not pictured. I think it was like 16 inches in length! Ridiculous.
