Squash Parmesan Pizza

Squash Parmesan Pizza

Ingredients

  • Breaded yellow squash (egg, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: Throughout my pizza adventures I’ve tried chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan as pizza toppings. I prepared this pizza the same way. First, I cut the squash into bite sized pieces. Next I dipped the pieces in an egg wash, then in bread crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. I then baked the squash until it became crispy on both sides. I pre-baked the dough, spread on a thin layer of pizza sauce, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese and added the squash parmesan.

Hot Pepper, Potato, and Onion Pizza Recipe

Hot Pepper, Potato, and Onion Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Sauteed hot pepper (wear gloves while chopping)
  • Sauteed onion
  • Roasted sliced potatoes
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Note: This pizza packed a lot of heat. Even though I wore gloves while chopping the onion, I still burned my eye when I rubbed it later. And I inhaled some of the fumes while chopping the pepper leading me to decide that wearing a face mask would have been a good idea.  The heat didn’t hit Andrew until he ate a lone pepper slice and then he tried using the crust to numb the burn. It was totally worth it though; the pizza was great!
