It’s Squash Season – Let’s Make a Pizza!

The other day a friend of mine gave me a whole bag of home-grown yellow squash and zucchini from her garden.  I was so grateful for the thoughtfulness.  My friend knew I enjoyed cooking and she didn’t want all of her squash and zucchini to go to waste.  I brought the bag home and had made the typical roasted squash with a touch of oil, salt and pepper that night. A couple days later I realized it had been awhile since I made pizza.  So, I mixed some ingredients together and made this beautifully earthy and vibrant colored pizza.  I used mozzarella because it melts so nicely into the crust and feta cheese because it adds a nice salty bite.  The aromas from the garlic and onions are so comforting, too.

I sliced the onions, zucchini, and yellow squash into thin medallions and then sliced them in half so I could decorate my pizza dough.  If you make this pizza with family and friends I find that pizza decorating makes for good memories and fun.  My son, Rayden, who is almost 2 years old now doesn’t really decorate the pizza.  However, he sure does like to taste test all of the ingredients and scarf down the finished product – ha!  This white pizza with yellow squash and zucchini is perfect comfort and play food for the summer season.

White Pizza with Yellow Squash and Zucchini

Ingredient List

1 Yellow Squash
1 Zucchini
1/2 White or Sweet Onion
Black Pepper
Dried Parsley
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Feta Cheese
Fresh Mozzarella
Garlic Powder or 1-2 Cloves of minced Garlic
Pizza Dough or Simple Bread Recipe*
Red Pepper Flake

To begin, start by prepping or making your pizza dough

  • Once the pizza dough is ready, flatten it out into any shape you like
    • I used my Simple Bread recipe, which is made with coconut oil and raw honey. I rolled and cut the dough into a square and then laid it onto a baking tray.  The dough covered a little more than half the tray


  • Place slices of mozzarella over the pizza dough
  • Then cover with yellow squash, zucchini, and onions
  • Drizzle EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL on top
  • Then sprinkle a good amount of crumbled FETA CHEESE all over the pizza

Bake the pizza at 400° Fahrenheit for 18-20 minutes White Pizza with Yellow Squash and Zucchini 2

Slice and serve.  Enjoy!
