Do you ever have a craving for some flavors or ingredients and you come up with an idea and know it could turn out bad, but want to try it anyways? That was exactly what happened last week when all I wanted was a pizza with zucchini, corn and bacon on top. Who knows why I chose those 3 toppings, but it seemed like a good idea and I was determined to make it.
Zucchini, Corn & Bacon Pizza
- Pizza crust
- Pizza sauce
- Mozzarella cheese
- 1 ear of corn
- 1 zucchini
- 1 Tbsp butter
- Salt / pepper / Old Bay to taste
- 4 pieces of bacon
Preheat your oven based on the instructions for your crust. I went with the Pillsbury pizza crust because I wanted it to be a little thinner. Spread the crust out on your pan, cover the top in your pizza sauce, and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Now work on your toppings. In one pan let your butter melt while you cut your zucchini into slices. The thinner, the crispier they will become. Saute the zucchini in the pan with the butter, and add some salt, pepper and Old Bay to taste. Cut the corn off the cob and put in a bowl. As the zucchini is close to being cooked, a the corn so give it a little crisp as well.
In another pan, cook your bacon strips over medium heat. When they’re to your crispy liking, dry them on a paper towel and crumble them into smaller pieces.
Now top your pizza with the zucchini, corn and bacon and put into the oven! Bake it according to the crust directions (I baked mine a little longer for a crispier crust) and enjoy!
Results: I really liked the different ingredients together. It was like having a somewhat healthy pizza since there were veggies on it.. Next time I might add some red pepper flakes for a lil kick. Hunter enjoyed it too and we both finished off the leftovers later that week!
