Zucchini and Goat Cheese Pizza
This is a gorgeous way to use up a couple of zucchini, adapted from a recipe on Smitten Kitchen.
12-inch pizza crust (for recipe, see this post)
3 oz. soft goat cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh lemon thyme (or 1/2 tsp dried, regular thyme is fine too)
Zest of 1 lemon
2 zucchini or other summer squash, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
Chop or rub the leaves of the thyme, and add them to the goat cheese with the garlic and lemon zest. Spread this mixture all over the pizza crust. Arrange the thin slices of zucchini in concentric rings over the top, overlapping each other, and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake at 450F for 20 minutes, or until the edges are golden-brown and the zucchini slices look cooked.
