Yummy healthy zucchini cakes

With gardens producing so much zucchini this time of year I thought I would share this post again…just in case


This summer we were so lucky that we had so many veggies grow in the garden we had veggies coming out of our ears! We were looking for recipes to use them all the time, so here is one for you to make to use up some of the zucchini or squash you may still have left in the garden.

When I Get Home

There is a marvelous crock pot with delicious steak veggie stew waiting to be stirred and served.

I am so incredibly excited to eat it on this gloomy day… I will post the recipe once I have made sure all the ingredients are as perfect as I think they will be!

That is all

So the fact of the matter is I usually take pictures of a recipe and don’t end up posting it until…weeks…yes weeks later. I do this recipe blogging thing because it makes me happy and I love cooking. If the world was perfect and I had all the extra time in the world I would do this all the time, I would have perfect pictures and use fresh, exotic ingredients all the time. But, I don’t. I use products from King Soopers, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Farmers Markets and any other place I find a good deal or I see something and I get inspired to make something.

I got inspired to make a flat bread pizza because I had an appetizer at a restaurant and said “I can make this… better” I think I was successful and therefore I am sharing it. You can make it too and be the judge of your own pizza! The nice thing is that the toppings are completely up to you!


Flatbread (I used Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads)

Pizza Sauce (I made my own, recipe below- or check out my Parma Rosa Sauce)

Toppings- I used the ones below but feel free to great creative:

Mushrooms (I used crimini and shitaki)

mush ham cheese







Canadian bacon

Sautéed shallots




Goat Cheese

4 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 tablespoons roughly chopped thyme

1 tablespoons roughly chopped rosemary

Directions for Sauce:

Mix all your ingredients in a bowl together and spread on your flat bread- I prefer a pizza with a white sauce instead of a red but a good red sauce option is my past Parma Rosa Sauce.

Pizza Directions:

Spread all your ingredients on to your pizza.

Bake on a heavy baking sheet in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is starting to bubble up and get brown around the edges.
