“A break from traditional pizza. I made a Carpaccio of Raw Zucchini recipe that my husband saw Tyler Florence make (Tyler's Ultimate http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/carpaccio-of-raw-zucchini-recipe/index.html) and thought it might go good on a pizza. I added my own take. The pizza dough recipe also came from him. If you only want to make one pizza you can freeze the dough in a large ziploc bag, just take it out in the morning and you have pizza dough ready to go for dinner. The dough does well in a bread machine, but I usually have to add sIightly less flour for my most of my bread machine recipes. I also like to use a pizza stone. I usually make two pizzas, one for the grown ups and one for the kids, usually pepperoni and cheese.”
