Pizza with Yellow Squash, Mushrooms, Kale, and Lemon
Our son Ben, who is here for a while, has been perfecting his pizza-making skills. Here is a pizza topping that he invented: an unusual combination of ingredients, including Yellow Squash,
which is now seriously in season.
It was sensational. I got Ben's permission to share this stroke of mid-summer genius.
He made this pizza with his own secretly-personal thin crust, topped with a thin layer of pizza sauce and a blend of Italian cheeses (real for him and Michael, and daiya for me). He sautéed lots of sliced mushrooms and sliced squash, put the vegetable mixture on top of the cheese, and added many small pieces of uncooked kale. He topped it all off with some lemon juice and olive oil.
He cooked this pizza in a 450 degree oven.
