Grilled Zucchini Pizza with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Posted Jun 24 2009 6:09pm

I don't have too many claims to fame... I can only think of 2 or 3 on this blog - my famous sugar cookies,pumpkin buttercream, and my Twilight cake. All baked goods, interesting!
Anyway, if there's anything on this blog you ever make, it should be this pizza. It was something I dreamed up one day and it's just wonderful. I decided to make it again, but rather than top it with the goat cheese, I spread it on the bottom and sprinkled a tiny bit of parmesan on top. My balsamic drizzle wasn't as thick as I wanted, but all in all, it was a great pizza!
See the original here!

Grilled Zucchini Pizza with Goat Cheese and Proscuitto

(half this recipe makes one pizza)
1 packet active dry yeast
1 tbsp. brown sugar or honey
1 c. warm water
1.5 c. whole wheat flour
1.5 c. all purpose flour
2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise and grilled
1/4 lb. sliced prosciutto
2 slices of red onion, grilled
4 oz. herbed goat cheese
Salt and Pepper
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. cornstarch

Add water, yeast and sugar to a mixing bowl.
Let it sit for 10 minutes, yeast will bubble.
Turn the dough hook on and add in the flours.
If the dough is too sticky, add another 1/4 c. all purpose flour.
Let it knead for 5 minutes.
Cover with a damp towel and let it sit for 1-2 hours.

Slice zucchini, salt and pepper both sides very well.
Lay zucchini on grill and cook 5 minutes on each side, or until a bit charred.
Add onions, be careful with them, they fall apart easily!
Add prosciutto to a cooler part of the grill, keep an eye on it!
Remove everything from the grill and lay on a sheet pan.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk vinegar and cornstarch until it's thick and hot. Set aside.
Roll out dough, and place on a pizza pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
Add toppings and put back in the oven for another 3-5 minutes.
Drizzle with balsamic reduction, slice and serve.
