pizza alla zucchina/zucchini pizza

Secret Recipe Club, how you’ve been missed! After a much deserved break, Group C is back for Reveal Day.  For this big day, I was super excited to take a trip to Calera de Tango, Santiago, Chile to visit Gloria and her delicious creations.

While culling through the myriad of choices, my first thought was dessert.  What can I say?  I always move toward dessert first. However, I scrolled through and came across Gloria’s pizza con vegetales y zapallitos italianos, or zucchini and tomato pizza.  I had just picked up a few zucchini from the store and knew these little pizzas had my name written all over it.

I did make a couple of tweaks to the recipe, but believe the changes don’t jeopardize the integrity of Gloria’s original vision.  First, I sautéed the zucchini prior to adding them to the pizzas, seasoning the slices liberally. Secondly, I substituted the sliced raw tomatoes with slow roasted tomatoes I had made a few days prior to making the pizzas.


Overall, I thought these pizzas were mini rounds of scrumptious comfort food. I made this determination after realizing I didn’t share, not one. I ate each and every pizza over several days.  Pretty successful Secret Recipe Club, day, I think.  Agreed?

These little mini pizzas look really delicious and tasty. I cooked from your blog the apple crumb bars and they were so tasty they disappeared in jiffy.

This is HEAVEN to me – seriously this is my type of comfort food – doughy pizza with garlicky veggies. I got to remember this one when I’m overloaded with zucchini in the summer!
