Maybe pizza isn’t quite the right term – it doesn’t have tomato sauce or pepperoni on it.
And it doesn’t use a bread-dough pizza crust.
Using puff pastry rather than the traditional pizza crust gives a much lighter aspect to this, late-summer pastry.
Cut everything very thinly, with a knife or food processor, 1/16th inch (.3cm), and don’t be too generous with the cheese.
Scoring a line around the edge of the pastry will help it puff up.
Preparation and cooking time: 45 minutes
- 1 red onion
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 zucchini, medium, 7 – 8 inches (20cm) you may not use it all…
- 2 tomatoes
- 6oz (180gr) deli or baked ham or smoked turkey, sliced thinly
- 3oz (90gr) shredded cheese
- 2 tbs Parmesan
- 1 sheet puff pastry
- Lay the puff pastry out on a baking sheet.
- With a dull knife (butter knife) lightly score a line around the pastry, 1/2″ (1.25cm) from the edge, being careful not to cut all the way through. If your pastry is frozen you may have to wait until it thaws a bit.
- Chop onion.
- In a medium skillet sauté onion in oil until tender, about 7 minutes.
- Add thyme and stir to combine.
- Remove from heat until needed.
- Thinly slice zucchini
- Thinly slice tomatoes, about 1/16th” (.3cm). You should get 8 – 10 slices from each tomato.
- Cut the ham into strips.
- Spread the onion on the puff pastry, staying inside the scored line.
- Lay the zucchini slices on top in 2, slightly overlapping circles.
- Spread the ham on top of the zucchini.
- Lay the tomatoes on top of the ham, touching, but not overlapping.
- Sprinkle with shredded cheese and Parmesan.
- Bake, 420F (210C) until edges of the crust are golden and vegetables are tender, 25 – 35 minutes.
- If zucchini has given off much liquid, score a slit in the edge and tilt slightly to drain.
- Cut into wedges and serve.
