Pizza is a staple in my house. It is one of our favorite meals. Bread and cheese and toppings. It may be the most perfect food. I recently threw a Farm-to-Table potluck and I wanted to use some beautiful squash and zucchini that I recently found at a farmers market.
This recipe is crazy easy and ridiculously good. With just a few ingredients, you will be surprised at the flavor that this pizza will bring. I decided to use goat cheese because, well, I love goat cheese. I wanted to use a cheese that would compliment the vegetables and not overpower them, but could hold its own with the crust.
You can peel the veggies any way you like. I just used a vegetable peeler and made long ribbons. This recipe is also a fave because of the delicious golden brown garlic that is in each bite. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this recipe. Your family will love you, and you may even convince them that this is a better option than delivery pizza. You can make this garden fresh pizza faster than calling out for pizza, and who doesn’t love that?
- 1 large farm fresh zucchini (if you need more ribbons, you may need 2)
- 1 large farm fresh yellow squash
- packaged pizza dough or phyllo dough
- 1/2 cup (4 oz.) goat cheese
- 8-12 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp butter or olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Saute the garlic cloves on medium heat in the olive oil or butter until golden brown. Add salt and pepper if desired. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Pre-heat oven to the directions of the phyllo or pizza dough states.
- Roll out the pizza dough and spread on goat cheese and sprinkle on the garlic cloves and salt and pepper.
- Weave the zucchini and squash ribbons on top of cheese and garlic.
- Bake in the oven as long as the dough direction advises, or until the dough has reached a golden brown.
I made this recipe for my Farm-to-Table Potluck with many other farm fresh recipes.
