A Zucchini Blossom by Any Other Name
The yellow-orange blossoms lend a delicate zucchini flavor and striking contrast to the white pie.
To prep the blossoms, tear the petals away from the stem (and discard the stem).
Prep the Zucc
Season the Dough
To make the garlic oil, gently heat 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add 4 cloves of thinly sliced garlic and cook until the garlic is fragrant but not colored (about 3 to 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and let the oil cool. Cover the oil and let it steep for an hour. This stuff is great on pasta as well!
Zucchini and Mozz
Ben emphasized the importance of bringing the toppings all the way to the edge of the dough surface.
Tomatoes and Blossoms
Spread the marinated tomatoes and zucchini blossoms over the surface of the pie.
To make the salsa bianca, blend 1 1/2 quarts of heavy cream, 1/8 cup mascarpone, 1 tbsp sour cream, 2 cups grated Parmesan, 1/4 tbsp granulated garlic, and 1/2 tablespoon salt with a hand blender until smooth. Use the leftover sauce for pasta.
Into the Oven
The pizza cooks for approximately six to eight minutes in the 600 to 650 degree Fahrenheit Marsal & Sons oven.
At home, we suggest you cook your pie at the highest temperature your oven can reach. If you're using a pizza stone, you'll want it to be in the oven during the pre-heat. Cook the pizza until the crust is crisp and bubbly and the cheese has melted.
Ready to Mange
No matter how you slice it, share your pizza with loved ones and appreciate the bounty of summer.
