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!
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 Toppings: 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.
