I know I just posted a chard pizza a few weeks ago. Maybe it’s too soon to post another pizza blog? This will be the last one for a while. I promise. In my defense, pizza is a quick easy summer meal and it is a perfect vehicle for all the beautiful vegetables we get, like the zucchini and zucchini blossoms in this weeks share. I made some pizzas and calzones with them and took a few pictures to maybe inspire some meals for you.
For the filling for the calzones I used the onions and parsley we got too, oh and some beet greens.
I sauteed all that in olive oil and salt and pepper until they were just tender. Then I mixed up the parsley with some ricotta and Parmesan cheese. I don’t measure anything. I just mix what I have up.
I then rolled out some pizza dough in an oblong shape and piled the vegetables and cheese parsley mixture on half and pulled the other half over the filling and make some slits in the top of the dough to let the steam escape.
My oven was about 450 degrees and it cooked in about 25 minutes.
And it was delicious.
For the zucchini blossom pizza, I just threw some zucchini blossoms on a pizza with some cheese. In hindsight I wish I stuffed the blossoms with some of the ricotta mix and then put them on the pizza. Oh well. Next time.
There will be a next time too, I’m sure.
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer vegetables. Have a great week.
