Poll: Squash on Pizza, Way or No Way?


Pizza vox populi.

After a watery slice last week, my enthusiasm for zucchini as a topping was totally squashed. I blatantly ignored the warnings of my esteemed colleague and my best judgement in opting for the vegetable topped pie. Not only was it watery, but it added nothing to the pie in terms of flavor. However, some very thorough research by a fellow Slice'r reveals the right treatment can make pumpkin and zucchini worthy toppings when properly prepared. I believe it can be done (like maybe this slice with courgette julienne solves the problem), but I have yet to meet a pizza with squash that I like. So what's the general consensus?
