Zucchini, Mozzarella, Lemon and Chilli Pizzas

I absolutely love gathering all of my friends around the table as often as I can, and this is exactly the kind of thing that I serve up. 

Makes: 2 Pizzas


2 purchased thin pizza bases
1 ½ cups grated mozzarella
⅔ cup grated parmesan
3 zucchini finely sliced
80-100 grams buffalo mozzarella, drained and torn into chunks
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
½ teaspoon chilli flakes


Preheat the oven to 200˚C fan bake

Place two oven trays in the oven to preheat.

Place each pizza base on a piece of baking paper. Sprinkle most of the parmesan and mozzarella over the pizza bases. Lay the zucchini on top in a single layer and top with the remaining grated cheese. Sprinkle over sea salt, black pepper, lemon zest and chilli flakes. Divide the buffalo mozzarella between the pizzas and carefully slide the prepared pizzas onto the hot oven trays and cook for 10-12 minutes until golden. Serve with a generous garnish of mint leaves.
