Zucchini Flower Pizza

I followed my old Italian friend's pizza dough recipe, then topped the pizza with my flowers.  Amazing results.  Unique, rustic, and extremely delicious! 
Moral of the story...anything goes, even flowers on your pizza!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Rising Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 45 minutes


  • 900 grams flour about 7.5 cups
  • 20 grams fresh yeast
  • 4 TBS potato flour or 1-2 mashed soft potatos
  • 1 TBS olive oil drizzle
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 to 2 cups water warm, until dough is the perfect texture and not sticky


  • Go about making this typical and simple dough as you would any pizza dough.  Combine your ingredients with the wet, by adding the warm water slowly until you are happy with the binding, and it's not sticky.  
  • Lay out on a board and cover with a warm water towel, set aside and let it rise.
  • when it's risen and doubled in size, take the towel off, and cut the dough in half, right down the middle.  This will form 2 large pizza's.
  • spread rounded, flattened dough on a pizza pan, and begin to add your toppers.  Begin with olive oil, then your sauce, cheese, and the final topper.
