Homemade pizza is totally my jam. It’s become a bit of a hobby actually and my boyfriends knows to expect it on Wednesday nights. Why Wednesday – well because that’s farmers market day for me. Well, technically I go Wednesdays and Sundays, but that’s besides the point. I always come home from the farmers market with way too many things for 2 people to actually eat. So I try to stuff as much of it as I can on a pizza for dinner. It just makes sense. (at least to me!) So this past weekend I came with the most beautiful squash blossom. ummm yes. totes obsessed.
They were just begging to be made into a pizza, especially because they only last a few days after being picked, so you’ve got to use there morsels of fabulousness stat!
So, on top of my crust I added, heaps of pepper jack cheese, salty pancetta that I sauteed with the zucchini ends of the squash blossoms and then the edible flowers to finish things off. Then off to the oven it went and about 12 minutes later it was dinner time. The pizza was perfect. The squash blossoms were delicate, the cheese gave the pizza just the kick it needed and the pancetta and sliced zucchini that were cooked together made it a slightly salted bite of heaven!
You can totally make your own dough for pizza, but if not either pick up some frozen dough from your local Italian market and let it thaw and then roll out, or pick up a pre-made crust from the grocery store
Also, if you don't have a pizza peel or pizza stone, you can easily place the pizzas on a baking sheet and bake in the oven.
