Cheesy Zucchini Pizza

Boy oh boy, do I have dinner for you tonight.

Hush! No questions yet!! First, you must drink wine. It’s Friday, after all.
That’s better. Now, sit back and relax while I entice you with this cheesy zucchini masterpiece.
First things first: get yo’ dough.
I really like the recipe I have for pizza dough, but since I was at work all day I decided to just pick up some whole wheat dough from Trader Joe’s. This stuff is great and only, like, $1.99! If follow my lead and cheat like me, it’s important to take the dough out of the fridge about twenty minutes before you plan to use it so it has some time to warm up.
The rest of the ingredients you will need for success:
Zucchini! They’re everywhere! My favorite way to eat zucchini will always be in a sweet bread form, but this pizza is definitely a close second. And, let it be noted that for this recipe I actually only ended up using two of the three zucchini you see here.
So first things first, wash the zucchini and then GRATE them! Yep, you heard me—grate ’em!
I heard about the grating zucchini idea from an article on Babble a few days ago. How interesting!
Once you’re through grating, press down with a paper towel to soak up some of the zucchini-water (zucchini-water?).
I also like to just take the zucchini in my hands and squeeze over the sink to get out all the zucchini-water that I can. Plus, who doesn’t like to see bright green liquid dripping from their fingers?
Moving on.
Put one cup of ricotta cheese in a bowl.
I don’t buy part-skim ricotta because I don’t like the way it tastes. But you could if you really wanted to….it doesn’t make much difference. When it comes to cheeses, I say go big or go home!
Now, add two minced garlic cloves and a pinch of sea salt and pepper to the cheese and stir well to combine.
It tastes like a deliciously cheesy cloud. Mmmmm
Set that aside. In another bowl, combine the zucchini plus two cups of shredded mozzarella cheese.
Stir and then add a pinch of sea salt and pepper to that as well.
Set all that business aside now and start to work on the dough.
I lack talent in the pizza dough throwing competition, so my crusts always end up looking a bit rustic, if you will. Ain’t no thang!
Tonight I felt like forming a rectangle, so I did.
Remember to either dust cornmeal or spray your baking sheet with cooking spray so there won’t be any stick action happening. That’s the LAST thing you want!
Spread the ricotta cheese gently on the dough.
Top with the zucchini mixture.
Since I like some spice in my life, I like to do a little of this right here:
Then bake that sucker! I baked this guy at 450 for about twelve minutes. I never use a timer because in culinary school we didn’t have them. It sucked at the time but forced me to always be aware of what was in the oven and learn to bake things based on “feel” and not on time. If you ever ask a chef how long something takes to cook they will simply tell you “cook it until it’s done”. And that’s that.
Ain’t it purdy? I love the bright green color. This would also be great cut into tiny squares and served as appetizers for a dinner party.
I never have dinner parties though (anyone want to come over for dinner? please? friends?) so I cut this into HUGE squares and proceeded to stuff my face.
+ vino vino
I’m in my happy place right now and it feel so gooooooooooooooooooood.
Zucchini Pizza
Makes one pizza (square, “rustic” or pie shaped)
2 large zucchinis
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
sea salt
red pepper flakes
pizza dough: either regular or whole wheat.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Either dust cornmeal on a baking sheet (or pizza stone–even better!) or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Grate the zucchinis and press with paper towels to soak up the liquid. Mix the zucchini with the mozzarella cheese and a dash of salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
In a small bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and garlic. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
Work the pizza dough into whatever shape your heart desires. Spread the ricotta cheese on top and then top with the zucchini mixture. Add some pepper flakes if you like spice in your life. Reduce oven temperature to 450 and bake pizza for about 12 minutes, or until the crust begins to turn golden and the cheese has started to bubble.
Cool, slice and stuff your face.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! We have an abundance of zucchini in a garden I’m sharing with a friend. A friend shared a yummy, yummy recipe for pineapple zucchini bread but I can’t wait to make this pizza. Like you, a bought a hearty basil plant at the store a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to add a bit to one side of the pizza. And maybe tomato? Or should I keep it virgin zucchini?

    I commented about the pizza on the last post – it wouldn’t go through on this on. But just know that pizza and wine and seeing you write about it the way YOU do…makes me happy. Very, very happy.

    This looks really good and I don’t even like cheese (gasp, I know!). My fiancΓ© makes this grilled bruchetta with ricotta, pesto, and sun-dried tomatoes. And I like that, and I LOVE zucchini (fried is my favorite form) so I totally think this would work for me. And it has cheese so it’d work for the boy. Perfection.

    Just a note on your recipe – pizza stones do not need to be sprayed with nonstick spray and should be put in the cold oven before turning it on to heat the stone up with the oven. If you use a pizza stone, you would dust a rimless baking sheet or pizza peel with cornmeal or flour and slide the uncooked pizza from the sheet or peel to the hot pizza stone.

    I’m starting to wish there was a Trader Joe’s where I live! I love to jog and yoga, and lead a healthy lifestyle so I was super excited to find your blog. For a while now I have been on a pescatarian, minimal dairy diet due to digestive disorders the Drs couldn’t figure out until recently (after 4 years) that hopefully, after yesterday’s surgery, will be gone! I am hoping I can make and eat this pizza in the near future! Until then, I’ll be enjoying your blog during my recovery and after. Can’t wait until I can get my running shoes back on (I’m at a snail’s walking pace right now), and enjoy this and that divine shrimp recipe from the other day.

    Love how you said if you ask a chef how long it takes to cook something they will say cook it till its done. I say that all the time – I thought it was a bad habit, but I never really pay attention to how long it takes I just keep an eye on it. I normally just guess at the temp. of the oven as well; I just set it to what I think would be right. That pizza looks really good, I will have to make it next time I get a pizza craving!

    seeing the candle in the background reminds me of how I am constantly trying to find a new candle that will really help me get rid of the smell of garlic and spices after I cook. I have a tiny apartment and sometimes my bath towels smell like garlic! It’s ok now because I can open windows, but in the winter I have to burn a candle constantly.

    It was good but not BAM! Do you have a great one? I still have one HUGE zucc left. Maybe I’ll try your zucc-pizza since we missed pizza-Friday last night. πŸ˜‰

    Also, how do you get your TJ’s pizza dough to s-t-r-e-t-c-h? I just use my hands but I LOVE a thicker crust and hate how there crust is more like flat bread. AND I always pre-bake for 5 mins @ 450 to avoid the sogginess. Any suggestions?

    So, I made this tonight and it was delish. I will say it needed a lil something. i did not put red pepper flakes because they are risky but i think slices of tomato on top maybe… I did put shredded chicken on top (extra protein) and a little but of shredded cheddar with the mozzarella. Nom nom, you are my bestie now…:)

    Just made this pizza last night and it was INCREDIBLE. the grated zucchini is a genius idea for a pizza topping.

    Made this for lunch with your dough recipe. . . it is FANTASTIC! I keep returning to the kitchen to cut a small bite off. Yikes! It’s gonna be a regularly made recipe from now on ( :

    I have died and gone to heaven. Seriously. I have made your pizza crust but for convenience tonight I used the basic “light whole wheat” bread from “Artisan Bread in 5 min a day” recipe, which I lopped off the stash in my fridge. O. M. G. I don’t use that term very often, but if there was ever a food I wanted to roll around in while sipping red wine, this would be it.

    Just made this last night for dinner – soo good! I used a pre-made crust and cooking is always trial and error for me so lesson learned: drain the zucchini really really good πŸ˜‰

    I just made this last night and it was awesome! Used yellow squash which was even better because my little ones did not know there was squash on the pizza. Eating the leftovers now. YUM!

    This was yum – although I changed it around a lot. Instead of zucchini I used broccoli, and blended up some of it with the ricotta and added lemon zest too, then spread it on the base and topped it with whole broccoli florets and cheese. Was so yum!

    I made this for my teenage daughter who just came in the kitchen and proclaimed “this is by far the BEST pizza you’ve ever made me!”
    Enough said! πŸ™‚
    Thank you for an easy and truly delicious recipe!!!!

    Many thanks for creating this ‘za. I was looking for ‘za-thing to do with zucchini I had and Google brought me here. SNAP – there’s a treasure-trove of goodies here. Very serious High-5s being thrown your way.

    Looks awesome, going to pull some dough out of the freezer and make some tonight. We make our own dough and freeze it for just such an occasion. My wife and daughter enjoy making pizzas too and we grill them year round here in beautiful northern Michigan.
