Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the zucchini in the oil until golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch pizza pan with cooking spray.

  • Combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Slowly stir in the vegetable oil and warm water. Knead the dough until well blended. On a floured surface, roll the dough out with a rolling pin to fit the prepared pizza pan. Roll the crust thin, and fold over the edges to form a rim. Spread the pizza sauce over the dough, and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top. Arrange the zucchini slices over the cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned, about 15 minutes. Spoon dollops of mascarpone cheese over the pizza. The cheese will melt onto the pizza and spread naturally. Allow the pizza to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

I have my own recipe for pizza crust from Rose L. B. But these toppings were delicious. Really excited to make it for some friends next time. I made it on a super thin crust. That and the mascarpone made the pizza crisp and creamy at the same time. Loved it. Read More

Awesome! We used Pillsbury thin pizza crust instead of making the crust (following the instructions on the package). The toppings were delicious. We were looking for zucchini recipes because we had a ton of zucchini from our garden and this was one of our favorites! It will be a keeper for years to come. Read More
