Pizza was served tonight on a Large Zucchini sliced lengthwise.The past few weeks Peas Farms has been offering large Zucchini. I questioned, "What do you do with a 32oz Zucchini. I was given a handful of suggestions. The one that stuck with me was to core out the seeds and make a pizza.
Tonight I did just that after bringing home one larger than life Zucchini.I began by pre-heating the oven to 400 F. Sliced off both ends of the Zuke and cored out the centers and began making my Tomato sauce. I first shaved thin pieces of bacon and heated them in a sauce pan. Next I diced up the the zucchini centers and added it to the hot bacon. This was stirred until the zucchini seeds and flesh turned brown. I then added what was left of SamM salsa that I found in the fridge. And 2 cups of prepared tomato sauce. Brought this to a bubbling boil and turned off the heat. Covered and held for final assembly. I reached for a block of Mozzarella and diced it up for the topping.
Assembly was quick. Into the Zucchini boat went the hot sauce until it was level with the top. I added in a combination pizza meat and topped with the Mozzarella cheese. Baked my creation for 40 min at 400F. Another option would be to place Pepperoni slices on top. My Wife and I discussed this meal on Saturday at Market and she did not want pepperoni on her Zucchini pizza. So I hid her meat under the cheese.
The Fresh salad greens with Fresh raspberries tossed in was a greater hit for My Wife tonight. And even that was a refrigerator clean-out salad, Romain leaves, Red leaf lettuce, Coleslaw, Raspberry jello, and well hidden Mac n Cheese. I made sure the Fresh Raspberries and Black berries were on the top of the salad.
