This pizza is probably one of my faaavorite recipes to make because its colorful and so freakin’ good. And I mean, seriously… stunning right?
The first time I ever made this pizza, I forgot to season it. I was so excited to have Joe and my bro, Tommy, try it out. Joe put on his best smile and ate it… my brother, not so much. Leave it to your younger brother to make it loud and clear that your dinner is bland! I was so mad! When I dug into my piece… yeah. Bland. Oops! Needless to say, dough with just olive oil and veggies alone is not going to taste that great. Fortunately, I didn’t forget this time ;)
Oven: 425 F
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes
- 1-lb dough (I use Trader Joe’s!)
- 1 zucchini
- 1 summer squash
- 1/2 medium onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- Olive oil (how much depends on how Italian you are, hehe)
- Garlic salt
- Red pepper flakes
- Salt & pepper
Step 1: Veggie Prep!
God, I love vegetables. Probably why I am obsessed with this pizza. IT’S COMPLETELY COVERED. Dice them up nice-nice, like I did below. Done? Set aside.
Step 2: Prep Dough
NOTE: I leave the dough to rise on the counter before I go to work. When I get home later to make it, light and fluffy!
Throw down some flour and roll out the dough. Some days, I am an absolute pro at this. Other days, oof, not so much. Sending good vibes your way for when you roll out your dough!
Once you have a good-looking circle, oil up the bottom of your pan and plop the dough right on there (and cross your fingers for no holes). Give it a good crust, and lightly oil the top of the dough.
Have your gorgeous garlic ready? Once it’s peeled, slice them in half and rub against the dough. Mmmmm… garlic. Once rubbed, I dice up and toss it on. This is also when I throw on my seasonings… all of the above, to taste!
Step 3: Dress Your Damn Pizza
For all the artsy-folk out there, here comes the best part. Pinwheels on pizza!
I toss my onions on top afterwards, and re-season the top with a bit of salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil… because olive oil was made for gods and goddesses.
Step 4: Cook
Step aside, because this is a job for your oven. I hope that bad boy is set for 425 degrees F. This pizza will take about 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven and how crispy you like your crust. I’m a crispy girl, myself.
