Few weeks back we’re visiting our friends in one lovely small city on the lake Huron. Usually, If I have some free time, I make some kind of a baked dessert. Something which easily survive a three-hour car trip. However, this summer I’m not baking any desserts (with a few exceptions, haha) so my plans had to be altered. 

What about pizza? Why not? Who doesn’t love pizza, right? For breakfast, that could be a great thing to bring.

The only one issue I faced with I wasn’t planning any pizza because while making grocery shopping that trip didn’t pop up yet. That was kind of a challenge. The challenge was accepted.

First aff all, I always make dough enough for large two pizzas. I mean who wouldn’t do the same? Two pizzas are better than one. Am I right? That’s the same story with the cakes. Remember Karlson On the Roof saying that 8 cakes with one candle are better than one cake with eight candles. He was so right! I didn’t have any doubts about the first topping. Originally, I was going to make pasta on that day, so I just turned the pasta idea into one of the pizzas. Intrigued?  Just stay tuned, and I’ll post this recipe too.

Talking about the second one, I got a dilemma. I could have made just a tomato, mozzarella, and basil pizza. But you know me – that would have been the way too simple. Good old classic. Okay, if honestly, I just didn’t have any fresh tomatoes and mozzarella:)

But I did have one humble zucchini and some ricotta, and this combo sounded quite good! But I was kind of worrying my man won’t be impressed with that topping. That’s why I grabbed a package of frozen chicken breast in the morning and by the time I started to cook it was ready. I don’t need to say, but the combo of zucchini and ricotta always is better with some chicken:)

You may not agree on some steps such as cooking the zucchini on a dry skillet. It always works for me because the excessive water evaporates and zucchini turn not that soggy like they could be. Sure you can omit this step. As for chicken, I cooked it simply in boiling water but feel free to use any other method.

So those unplanned pizzas turned out quite scrumptious!

Sometimes a good pizza is even better that a good cake.

There is one thing, though. Our friends didn’t happen to try them. First we ate a whole pizza few pieces before the trip. Remember, folks you should always degustate any food before serving not to be embarrassed. I mean we needed decent dinner too. The remaining pizza wouldn’t make it either.I don’t know. It must have got lost during that trip.

Any ideas what might have happened to it?

Do you love zucchini in pizza? Have you ever tried Zucchini Chicken Ricotta Pizza? What’s you favorite summer combo?

    So far I have only been making cauliflower pizza base; this was my first attempt at a regular pizza crust. And a very successful one, if I may say so myself. Not to mention, I have never thought of cooking the zucchini on a dry skillet before … So this recipe not only turned out great but it also opened a whole new world of culinary possibilities ;) Thanks!

    Amazing photos, Ben! But I love your story about the pizza. Pizzas tend to get “lost” around our house, too. I don’t know what it is. Perhaps we need to do a better job keeping an eye on those sneaky little buggers…haha! I love this version with zucchini on it. Well done!

    Ben, this pizza looks picture perfect and mouthwateringly good! I love everything you used on the topping. I had zucchini and summer squash with dinner tonight. I wanted to try something new, but due to my lack of creativity and motivation, I sautéed them the same way I always do. The next time I need to use up zucchini, they are going on a pizza! Pinning this for future use!

    Lol. You are tooooo funny, Ben. I haven’t the slightest idea what happened to the second pizza… maybe my old neighbors got ahold of it? ;) I’m not a huge sweet person (chocolate allergy kinda kills it for me), so I will take pizza over cake any day. And I’d rather have 8 pizzas with no candles! : D anyways, one can NEVER go wrong with any type of pizza but I LOVE this one! Zucchini and ricotta is quite delish! Throw it on a pizza pie and add some chicken? Yes please!!! LOVE!!
    P.s. looks like you had a great time at the lake- gorgeous photos!!!
    ♡ Cheers buddy!

    Nice trip photos! Never had zucchini on a pizza before but have a bunch of zucchini every week in my CSA box and trying to find new recipes for it. Will probably make this pizza this week. Thanks for the yummy (and creative) recipe Ben :)
