Zucchini pizza with goat cheese, avocado and cilantro

Man, this was a good pizza.

I got these baseball-sized squash in my CSA box this week. Aren't they cute?

My cat thinks so, too.

I used my standard pizza crust recipe (1 cup of warm water + 2 teaspoons or so yeast; when the yeast bubbles, add two cups bread flour and mix well; knead in another cup of flour; let rest until doubled) and added to it, in order:

olive oil
a thin layer of ricotta
one zucchini and one yellow squash, sliced very thin, in a thin layer (I had some left over)
lots of goat cheese
a thin layer of parmesan

I baked that at 475 for 15 minutes or so, then when I pulled it out of the oven, I added a sliced ripe avocado and a good handful of chopped cilantro.

Can I just say: YUM.

  1. I've never seen zucchini/squash that looked like that. are they (accidental?) hybrids with something else??
