Guys, I have a problem or rather a habit, that’s a problem… I tend to cook the SAME exact meals over and over again for dinner! Let’s keep life simple right? Right! This totally works, up until I eventually, which sometimes happens quickly, get bored of a meal and then it somehow drops off the recipe rotation and gets lost among all those 1980’s casserole dishes I probably ate too much of as a kid. Just seeing a can of Cream of Mushroom soup makes me fly past the grocery store aisle with abandon.

Maybe those lost recipes will surface years later and maybe not… Some repeat meals have stood the test of time, but I realized it’s because these long-standing dishes have actually transformed as I’ve continued to make them. A small change here a new ingredient there and you’ve basically got a new recipe.

This Farmers Market pizza, being one such example, has gone from zucchini pesto pizza to 3 cheese squash pizza to what you now see in these pictures. Really, though is it even possible to get sick of pizza? I don’t know if we can be friends if so… Thus, this ever-evolving recipe is still around.

Another subtle change in my recent prep was cooking it in the skillet versus a pizza pan and I’m so glad I did. Guys, this crust is dreamy! Because it was cooked in a skillet the crust is perfectly dough-like and soft. I’m still kicking myself for not stuffing it with cheese. Note to you: stuff that crust! I’m not going to judge if you don’t but you might need to re-think priorities. Just sayin’…

Just gaze upon that perfect crust up there!!!

And if you need redemption (don’t we all?), there’s plenty of veggies happily sitting atop that doughy crust. The whole hidden vegetable thing works just as well for me as it does our kids, and I actually like veggies. Next time you’re shopping your local farmers market purchase some zucchini, corn, and yellow squash so you can make your own farmers market pizza, which by the way takes LESS THAN 30 MINUTES!

Life is good friends! Life is good…

Farmer’s Market Skillet Pizza


  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 15 Mins
  • Cook Time: 15 Mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 Slices

Description

Use all the ingredients such as zucchini, yellow squash, and corn that you just picked up at the farmers market to make this summer skillet pizza.


Ingredients

  • 1 Pizza Dough
  • 1/4 cup Pesto
  • 1 medium Zucchini (sliced thinly)
  • 1 medium Yellow Squash (sliced thinly)
  • 2 tablespoons Corn
  • 2 ounces Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 ounce Shaved Asiago Cheese (or similar cheese such as parmesan)
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Spinach (chopped (optional))

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475.
  2. Spray a 12-inch heavy bottomed skillet such as a cast iron skillet with oil or cooking spray (I pour in a tiny amount of coconut oil and spread it around with a towel). On on floured surface roll out the Pizza Dough to form a 14-inch disc. Place the dough into the skillet and roll the edges toward the center to create a fold.
  3. Spread the Pesto on top of the pizza dough. Layer your pizza with the Zucchini, Squash, Corn, Mozzarella Cheese, Asiago Cheese, and top with the Spinach and some salt and pepper for seasoning.
  4. Place the skillet into the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crust edge begins to brown. Remove and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Notes

I always get my pizza dough fresh from the deli, but you can also find it in the frozen section of most grocery stores. There’s also the option to make your own if you’re going for a gluten-free version or something similar.

If you want to get really crazy I suggest stuffing your crust edge with some cheese before rolling it over!
