Courgette Pizza

This recipe blew me away. It is actually something my boyfriend came up with quite a while ago and I have made it several times for myself now. I know it doesn’t have a crunchy dough base, but this is full on pizza experience for me. Plus, you eat a whole courgette for dinner!

You will need:

  • 1 courgette
  • about 5cm of dried chorizo sausage
  • 1 can of tomato paste (70 grams)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • immense amounts of grated cheese! (just kidding, about 50 grams is enough I think)
  • teaspoon each of dried oregano, thyme and basil
  • salt& pepper

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ΒΊC and line a oven rack with baking paper.
  2. Wash your courgette and cut it up into 1cm thick slices.
  3. In a small bowl mix your tomato paste, minced garlic and herbs together. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cut your chorizo into thin slices.
  5. Ready to build these! Lay down all your courgette slices, divide the tomato paste/ sauce over all of them, add a slice of chorizo and top each with a small mountain of cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Or shorter/ longer dependent on how raw you like your courgette. But make sure the cheese is melted πŸ™‚
  7. Plate and enjoy!

 

You can use the rest of the chorizo in:

  • Some couscous salad. For example with feta and spinach.
  • in this stew: Bean Stew

How do you make sure you have enough veggies each day?
