Zucchini Pizza

Courgette Tart

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.

Zucchini  Pizza 

Preparation and cooking time:   45 minutes

Layer thinly slice zucchini on browned onions

 Ingredients:

  • 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

Top zucchini with ham and thinly sliced tomatoes

 Instructions:

  • 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.

Slice and eat!

  To assemble:

  • 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. 
  • Remove. 
  • If zucchini has given off much liquid, score a slit in the edge and tilt slightly to drain. 
  • Cut into wedges and serve.
