Even though zucchini and yellow squash are known for their mild flavor, this pizza is packed with flavor.
Summer Squash Pizza with Goat Cheese and Walnuts (Source)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling
1 garlic clove, minced
6 ounces pizza dough
Pinch of crushed red pepper
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ small onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup shredded part skim-milk mozzarella
1 teaspoon chopped summer savory
¼ pound summer squash, thinly sliced
2 oz fresh goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped, toasted walnuts
Preheat oven to 500. Preheat a pizza stone. In a small bowl, combine the 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the minced garlic and let stand. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to form a 12-inch round, ¼ inch thick. Transfer the round to a lightly floured pizza peel.
- Leaving a ½ inch border of dough, brush the round with garlic oil and sprinkle with crush red pepper, salt and black pepper. Scatter the onion slices over the round; top with the mozzarella and savory. Arrange the squash slices on top in a single layer, overlapping slightly. Dot with crumbled goat cheese.
- Slide the pizza onto the hot stone and bake for 5 minutes until the bottom is crisp and the squash is slightly browned. Transfer the pizza to a work surface, sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with olive oil. Cut and serve.
