Zucchini flowers and Pizza? YES!
Meg’s was talking to Amado, one of our beloved farmers from JR. Organics, about making summer pizzas. He encouraged her to try adding zucchini flowers to some of our favorite dishes. Amado suggested to stuff them or just use zucchini flowers as a pizza topping. We were a bit skeptical at first. However when we saw how pretty the flowers made our pizza ~ an edible work of art, AND how wonderful they tasted. We became hooked during summer when you can find the flowers most available.
The flowers melt into the pizzas beautifully, as you can see below. We can’t wait to try other recipes using the flowers, just make sure you take out the stem inside the flowers first!
And Please let us know by sharing in the comments below how YOU used them.
