Garden Pizza

We have a bounty of vegetables from our garden right now, great onions, tomatoes and lots of zucchini. We were hungry for a pizza so why not just use some of these awesome vegetables and create a pizza. The caramelized onions with seasoned zucchini and tomatoes make this a very flavorful pizza that we just love and will be making over and over. Take a look at that really used and well seasoned pizza stone, we have made lots of pizza on that stone.

Let rise 1 hour. Punch down. Brush pan with oil cover with cornmeal. Press dough down on the Pizza Stone or Pizza Pan.
  2. TOPPING - Slice the zucchini and lay them out on a paper towel. Sprinkle a little salt on top that will help draw the moisture out of the zucchini.

In a hot skillet heat the butter and begin to cook the onions and garlic on a medium low heat. Let the onions cook until they caramelize, be sure and stir them so they won't burn. On top of the crust begin with a layer of cheese, then zucchini and more cheese. Next layer tomatoes, olives and caramelized onions topping with cheese and fresh basil.
