Zucchini Pizza—It’s What’s For Dinner!

Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s quick, simple and easy to make, although making pizza dough can sometimes be a pain. I had a hankering for pizza last week but didn’t feel like making dough and waiting for it to rise. So, using the last of the summer’s zucchini and some inspiration from Rainbow Veggie Cakes, I concocted this zucchini pizza. You can obviously top it however you’d like, but this combination is yummy! Enjoy!
