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.
