I always love food but there is just something about summertime food that can't be beat. I love harvesting all that's ripe and then figuring out what delicious thing I can make with it. I mentioned before that I tend to over do it with zucchini so I was so pleased when E found this recipe for zucchini mushroom pizza. We've had our variation of it twice now and it is a big hit. We use the dough recipe in that link (it is a much chewier, thinner dough than our regular recipe) then for the base we use pesto and olive oil.
I use our old mandolin (yes, another yummy thing I can make with this gadget that I spent so many years pestering my poor husband to get rid of. I've actually bought two more since at thrift stores for other people) to julienne the zucchini and we just use regular mushrooms as well as a few cherry tomatoes for toppings. We top that with grated cheese and bake it 'til golden.
I can see a lot of our zucchinis getting used up this way. And good thing too because yesterday I noticed my "wart" zucchinis are starting to produce now.
Funny looking things. This is the first time I've tried this kind, I got the seeds at Seedy Saturday this spring. I assumed they would be a bush zucchini but the plants are sprawling out into my (already small) pathways. If you have any favourite zucchini recipes you'd like to share I'd be very happy to hear about them. ;-)
