Weekend Herb Blogging - Grilled Zucchini and Proscuitto Pizza with Sage

Last month I finished up my ABC's of Food with Z is for Zucchini. It was one of my more favorite letters because we enjoy zucchini so much - not only is it so good for you, being low in fat and calories, and a good source of Vitamin C, but it is also very versatile. In addition to the 2 recipes I posted there were some others that didn't make the cut because they are works in progress, a zuke bread that needs tweaking, and there were some ideas I didn't get to try before it was time to post.

This is a dish that I didn't get a chance to make before I posted Z.
Grilled Zucchini and Prosciutto Pizza.
I was hoping that it would look a little prettier for the picture, that the grilled zucchini slices would stand out a bit more, but after one bite I didn't care anymore. This pizza was wicked-delicious.

I sliced some small zucchinis lengthwise and tossed them with some oil, pepper and chopped garlic. Then we grilled them up until they were all pretty. I made my own pizza sauce and used sage instead of basil and oregano. Sage and Zucchini are so perfect together, you know? And garlic. Always garlic in our pizza sauces. The sauce went on to the crust, followed by a bit of cheese, then the prosciutto and zucchini, and a bit more cheese. Into the oven, then out and look at this:
You're drooling aren't you? Me too.

Since this recipe features zucchini and sage it is perfect for Weekend Herb Blogging, started by Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen and this week hosted by Rachel's Bite.

My parents are coming today for the weekend (yay!), so I'll see you next week. Have a great weekend.

I am drooling, yes. For months I've been saying I'm going to start making pizza, even bought two whole grain baking books with pizza crust recipes, but I still haven't done it!! I love the idea of using sage in the crust too! Just dellicious!

It certainly looks delicious. I just drooled over my keyboard. I got to make this for my other half who loves pizza. He could eat it every day.

Judy said...

Yum. This only worsens my already bad pizza craving.
