Zucchini Flower Pizza

 

Yes, it's Zucchini season and end of summer.  My plants have multiple male flowers on them, so I decided it was time to pick them and cook.  I didn't want to fry them today, but instead, do something I've never done...use them as toppers on a pizza.  I followed my old Italian friend's pizza dough recipe, then created the toppers on my own. 

Moral of the story...anything goes, even flowers on your pizza! 

Buon Appetito

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. 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.  

  2. Lay out on a board and cover with a warm water towel, set aside and let it rise.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. meat version I also prepared with the second pizza

  6. Bake in a hot oven (200 Celsius), and use the convection fan, along with the under grill setting.  Bake until golden and crust looks ready.
