Tomorrow is the first official day of summer! What's on your summer to-do list?
I've got one thing for you already: make. this. pizza. This pizza just screams summer with zucchini, corn, cilantro, lime... total summer perfection. If you have a grill, make it on the grill and make it that much more summery.
Since we don't have a grill, I fired up our oven to an ungodly temperature in the Texas heat. But it was SO worth it for this pizza! I'm seriously in love with it, and already can't wait to make it again.
Make this to kick off the official start of summer - you won't be sorry!!
cornmeal, for sprinkling
1 zucchini, very thinly sliced
1 cup fresh sweet corn
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 cup feta
1/2 grated parmesan
1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
Place a pizza stone in your oven, and preheat the oven to its highest temperature (mine is 550 degrees F). Allow to heat for at least 30 minutes.
Toss zucchini and corn in a bowl with olive oil.
Sprinkle a bit of cornmeal on parchment paper, then top with pizza dough and press out to a thin pizza (if it springs back, simply allow it to rest for 5 minutes and come back to it). Brush the crust lightly with olive oil (I used a garlic-infused olive oil). Top with zucchini, corn, red onion, jalapeno, feta, parmesan, and cilantro. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, then squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the entire thing.
Carefully(!) remove the preheated pizza stone from the oven and slide the pizza on parchment paper onto it. Return to oven and bake for 7-12 minutes, until cheese is beginning to brown and bubbly.
Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with an extra sprinkling of feta and cilantro with lime wedges on the side. Now devour.
