Zucchini & White Bean Pizza (from scratch!)

Another meal that's often hiding in an emptying kitchen, waiting to be made, is pizza. Last week I decided to get ambitious and make my own crust for the first time. It was much easier than I expected, though of course not as easy as pita pizza. I couldn't find much to put on it; then I remembered the chopped zucchini in my freezer and the can of white beans in the pantry. Bingo.

Zucchini and White Bean Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

Directions (ingredients in blue this time)
  1. Prepare the crust according to your favorite recipe (I used this one from Andrea Meyers and it worked pretty well), or get out the store-bought crust or pita.
  2. Move an oven rack to the lowest position. Preheat the oven to 500 F.
  3. Spread tomato sauce (I used Prego onion & garlic this time) on the crust; add diced zucchini and white beans, some oregano and red pepper flakes, and shredded mozzarella.
  4. Bake for 10-20 minutes - watch for the crust and cheese to start browning.
Note: My future father-in-law makes AWESOME pizza. I'll try to get a guest post from him sometime.
