Zucchini, Leek, & Goat Cheese Pizza

Don't you love it when you find a recipe that calls for several ingredients you need to use soon? That's exactly what happened to me with this pizza. This pizza made a light, refreshing change to the usual heavy fat pizza. Zucchini, leek and goat cheese pizza, adapted from Pizzeria by Evan Kleiman.

1-2 tbsp olive oil
2 Seven inch zucchini, juliened
3 baby leeks, white parts sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz crumbled goat cheese (I used Trader Joes)
Trader Joe's plain pizza dough
salt & pepper

Put pizza stone in the oven and preheat the oven to 450 (for 30 mins). Dredge your board with flour and roll out pizza dough into a 12" round pizza.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add zucchini, leeks, and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Turn off the heat, season, and spread evenly over your pizza dough. Spread crumbled goat cheese over the zucchini mixture. Cook on the pizza stone for 9-10 minutes.
