Zucchini Pesto Pizza
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pre-made 12" pizza crust (e.g. Boboli)
  • 1 7oz. container of refrigerated pesto sauce, or fresh
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 zucchini or yellow squash sliced into 1/4" coins
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
DIRECTIONS
  1. Place the pizza crust in a rolled edged pizza pan, a two part pizza pan, or a baking tray with a rolled edge.
  2. This will keep the oil that bakes out of the pesto sauce from spilling over.
  3. Spread 1/2 to 3/4 of the pesto sauce on to the pizza crust.
  4. Place the zucchini coins randomly over the pesto sauce then cover with the mozzarella.
  5. Place small dollops (about 1 tsp.) of ricotta cheese over the mozzarella layer.
  6. Bake following the pizza crust manufacturer's directions.
