Summer Pizza with Goat Cheese, Walnuts and Cauliflower Crust

Entrees, Recipes | 4 comments

Fresh zucchini and yellow squash delightfully squeal summertime is here. What better way to enjoy them than on a pizza!!! Yes, a pizza- a healthy pizza. I served this as an appetizer at a party and it was hit. It could easily be an entree as well.

I made a trip to my local farmer’s market this past weekend. I had fresh squash, zucchini, onions, basil, tomatoes, and even mozzarella cheese. I was excited to find a cauliflower crust at my local Whole Foods- and it is good! I have made my own cauliflower crust many times, and love it. This store-bought crust is a yummy easy button- I LOVE a healthy easy button =)

Okay, zucchini and squash are pretty mild in flavor, but we will kick it up a notch with some red pepper flakes.

The cheese is delicate and creamy and the
walnuts give a surprising crunch.

 

My hubby is not a fan of tomatoes, so I made one pizza with tomatoes and one without. If there is a veggie you don’t like, just omit it.

This pizza is refreshing and absolutely delicious.

“I am down 9.9lbs and a bunch of inches in 30 days. I didn’t measure before because I didn’t know if I was gonna stick to it (bad move on my part), but I didn’t realize how much wheat I was eating until I cut it out during this slimdown.

Thank you, Amy. I feel so energized and not only that – my mind is clearer and more focused.”
