Every once in a while my tummy talks to me. It has a low rumbly voice and it words are long and drawn out. It will tell me it it wants nourishment, it will tell me it does not like what I put in it (not one bit) or, on rare occasions, it will ask for something specific. Yesterday it asked for pizza. There I was, sitting on the couch plodding my way though my accounting homework, when this voice percolated up from the depths of my insides, with only one word, “Piiiiiiiizzzzzzzaaaaaaaaaa”. I tried to ignore it, tried to focus on credits and debits, adjusting entries and bank reconciliations, but that voice would not stand to be ignored. “Piiiiiiizzzzzzzzzzaaaaaaaaaaa!” it roared, until I could not ignore it any longer. Into the kitchen I went and began to prepare pizza. Zucchini, tomato and cheesy corn pizza.
Satisfied Tummy? (and it was.)
Now because my tummy was so damn insistent I didn’t have time to wait for a full fledged pizza dough so I used the ‘Quick and Easy Pizza Dough’ from allrecipes.com. I was pleasantly surprised with it and would recommend it to anyone else who has a very pushy tummy that won’t wait for proofing times…
For the toppings I took some fresh corn kernels, cut from the cob, and mixed them with some diced garlic, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and some sal and pepper to taste. Spead that on the dough as your base, then drop dabs of tomato sauce over that. I then thinly sliced some zucchini and tomatos and layered that over the tomato sauce, topped that with as much cheese as I pleased and baked! I recommend using a baking stone if you have it, it makes for quite the yummiest of pizza experiences, and bake on high, 425-450 degrees until crust browns and cheese bubbles and darkens.
Then over the lips and through the gums, lookout tummy….here it comes!
