meatless supper #5--Zucchini Crusted Pizza!

Just a quick post tonight. I am almost past the deadline for Enviromom's meatless supper club! I was once again fairly uninspired for this week's meal and I let the deadline creep up on me. I decided to flip through a few cookbooks last night and settled upon this delicious zucchini-crusted pizza from The New Moosewood Cookbook. I actually have the old Moosewood cookbook too, and somewhat prefer it because the newer one has been too de-fat-ified in my opinion, but for this recipe the fat is basically the same in the newer book and it made a slightly smaller pie, so I went with this one. And the results? Yum! I loved this and it is way better than the other time I tried zucchini crusted pizza (I can't remember what recipe I used that time, but it was too low fat and fell apart).
Did the kids like it? No! Oh well. I still stand by my philosophy of serving healthy whole foods over a lifetime and they will learn to love eating healthy. Faith was observing just tonight on our walk that we eat way healthier than a lot of families (in her experience) and she's glad. Nonetheless, she is still picky about zucchini but I think she will come around. By the way, one advantage to living here is that we still have zucchini in the garden. There are tomato slices on there too (under the cheese) also from the garden. I thought this was delicious and could eat it every day. Ken liked it too, but maybe less than I did.
Served with a salad--I have a big bag of spinach from Trader Joe's to use up and we had strawberries from farmer's market so I made this.
In other news it is cold and blustery tonight and we are thrilled. I just looked up the temperature online and it is 52 degrees. Hooray! Faith and I took the boys for a walk in the moonlight and it was a big hit. Dieter especially loves the houses with Halloween decoration. Happy fall nights to you!

Looks good...and I'm so jealous! Fresh tomatoes and strawberries in November! I just went to the last day of the summer farmer's market and found carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic and winter squash...a fresh strawberry is one long winter away.
