Cheesy Zucchini pizza with whole wheat dough

Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini pizza

2 large zucchinis
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 3/4 cup white flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/3 cup warm water
1 1/4 oz package yeast
2 tsp sea salt

Recipe Directions for Zucchini pizza

  1. Dough (makes 2):

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the warm water and yeast.

  3. Stir in the salt and flour and mix on medium high speed on your KitchenAid for 5 minutes. While the mixer is going, drizzle in the olive oil.

  4. When the dough is soft and elastic, take out of the bowl, rub with olive oil and then place back in the bowl, cover with a dish towel and let rise for one hour.

  5. After the dough has doubled in size, cut in half to make two large pizza doughs or make mini doughs. You could also do what I like to do and freeze the dough in a plastic baggie for another time! When you are ready for your pizza, roll out the dough, cover with your toppings and bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.

  6. Pizza:

  7. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Either dust cornmeal on a baking sheet (or pizza stone?even better!) or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

  8. Grate the zucchinis and press with paper towels to soak up the liquid. Mix the zucchini with the mozzarella cheese and a dash of salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.

  9. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and garlic. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.

  10. Work the pizza dough into whatever shape your heart desires. Spread the ricotta cheese on top and then top with the zucchini mixture. Add some pepper flakes if you like spice in your life. Reduce oven temperature to 450 and bake pizza for about 12 minutes, or until the crust begins to turn golden and the cheese has started to bubble.
