Try It......You'll Like It!

I got this recipe from my blog friend Ashley over the winter. Ashley lives in Brazil, so it was summer for her. I planned to make it when we came into summer, but I forgot. It's unseasonably warm and my zucchini is still producing, so I made pizza for Sunday dinner. It is delicious and my tomatoes that I used were really tangy.

I used 2 medium zucchini, sliced thick.
Place zucchini on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil & a sprinkle of salt and roast for about 30 minutes.
I quartered a couple of tomatoes and put into the oven with the zucchini for the last 10 minutes.
I added some greek olives and fresh oregano
Ashley's recipe calls for mozzarella and parmesan. I only had parm and I think it was good without the mozzarella.

This is a raw sauce made in a blender or food processor:
 4 small quartered tomatoes
1/2 small onion
4 large cloves garlic
bunch of fresh basil
1/2 cup tomato puree
hefty drizzle of olive oil

Use whatever pizza crust you like. I make a thicker, Sicilian style crust.


  1. This looks incredibly good! I will give it a try!

  2. Ohhh! That looks amazing...I am inspired. Friday is pizza and movie night at my house...might be homemade pizza this Friday.

  3. That looks wonderful :-)

  4. Oh, yum! I had a slice or two of pizza for lunch and it came no where near what this one looks like! Next time, I'll have to close my eyes and picture a good slice...just like yours!

  5. Yes please. This sounds fantastically delicious.

  6. To everyone: it's good, do yourself a favor and try it. Hint: my tomatoes were TANGY and it added a lot.

    Queen, I haven't been to Nevada in a long time, maybe I'm due?

  7. Wow! My mouth is watering! That looks like one delish pizza!!

  8. Oh yeah! That pizza was our staple for awhile : )
    I am going to bring that one back. Thanks for reminding me about that old favorite!



I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
