A great way to use veggies fresh from the garden! With fennel basil, and fontina cheese, this is a taste treat!
- 2 cups thinly sliced onions
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons ground fennel
- 4 cups sliced zucchini, quarter lengthwise,then slice crosswise into bite-size pieces
- 4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh basil
- pizza dough (homemade or storebought)
- 2 cups grated Fontina cheese (optional)
- In a skillet saute the onions, garlic, and salt in the olive oil on medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes, until translucent.
- Add the ground fennel and zucchini and cook until the zucchini starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and add the tomatoes and basil.
- Allow to cool somewhat and drain any excess liquid before spreading on the pizza crust.
- Then top with cheese, if you wish, and bake according to the pizza crust directions.
While I like the taste combination, there was way too much toppings for the pizza, Maybe twice what we needed..
This was awesome and very easy to make. I served it to friends at my Oscar party and everyone loved it. Only thing I'd do differently is to drain the veggies and tomatoes one more time before applying to pizza. Mine got a little soggy with the extra liquid, but it still tasted great.
Though I didn't use the onions, I'm giving this 5 stars for the flavor. I did use onion & garlic powder however when I sautéed the zucchini. I also used Roma tomatoes to cut back on the water content. It was a nice change to meat pizzas. Thanks for posting.
